His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh
It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
Our prayers are offered for Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family at this time, and for all who are grieving this loss. We also offer our thanksgiving to God for the Duke’s life and his service of our country.
There is an online book of condolence at:
Rev David Payne & The Churchwardens of Flitton, Pulloxhill & Silsoe
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.
May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Tea at Three
Zoom time together each Sunday between 3:00pm and 4:00pm.
A chance to catch up with others, laugh, moan, get things off your chest witht your Vicar – Rev David Payne.
No agenda – just bring your own brew and a cake or equivalent (calories don’t count on Sundays). It’s a bit like the refreshments after the service but without the worship!
To obtain the access code for the Zoom call, please email:
(Once you have the access code, you can come for Tea at Three any week – the code remains the same from week to week.)
All previous Virtual Vicar services are still available to watch – you can find them all here

Let Us Pray
Join Chris Nixon and others for Zoom prayers on Mondays at 9pm and Thursdays at 9am.
Silence, words, encouragement, music, a candle and all of this because we need to spend time with our ‘Father in Heaven’
All are welcome
A Gentle Journey isn’t a service – it’s a selection of prayers and reflections accompanied by restful music and tranquil images. Lasting just over 15 minutes, we hope that you will find peace and relaxation, comfort and inspiration – a time of quiet contemplation as you listen to these words of praise.
