Services at Flitton


But we are delighted to be able to open the church for private prayer.  This is 'by appointment' only, so please contact Angela if you would like to go.  
Call her on 01525 860723 or email
We are expecting only a few people, but if you find yourself in the church with other people present, please maintain 2 m social distancing and be aware that many of our congregation are vulnerable.  We would encourage you to wear a face covering too, if you can.
There is hand sanitiser to use at the church entrance, and most of the church is roped off, so we ask people to only use the Lady Chapel.
If you become unwell with Covid-19 symptoms within 7 days of visiting the church, please let Angela know so we can ensure it is cleaned before anyone else goes in.
The Risk Assessment is available here if you want to read it.
Recorded services by the ministry team will continue be conducted in the home of the worship leader on behalf of all of us. These will follow the normal pattern below, apart from Cafe Church which will be replaced by a 10 am Holy Communion.
The recorded services from the benefice can be found on the 'virtual vicar' page, together with other resources for worship at home. 
There are a number of national online resources ( including weekly streamed services and daily audio, as well as additional worship provision on the BBC.
The Church Times is also providing free resources, including services, prayers, reflections and hymns

  2nd Sunday at 9:30 am: Communion 

  3rd Sunday at 10:30 - 12:00: Cafe Church, with refreshments and sometimes there are children's activities

4th Sunday at 8:30 am: Holy Communion (BCP) sometimes followed by Parish Breakfast

5th Sunday at 10 am: United Benefice service  (all  together, in one  of the three churches)

Morning Worship is a traditional morning service, which takes about 45 minutes.

Choral Communion is a traditional communion service. Those who have been confirmed can come up to the altar for the bread and wine, and those who haven't can come up for a blessing or are welcome to remain in their seats. Often, the choir will be there and some parts of the service will be sung. This usually lasts an hour.

Cafe Church is a very informal gathering. The church will be open from 10:30 to around 12 noon, with refreshments available throughout -sometimes in the church hall - giving an opportunity to meet people, socialise and chat. There might be activities for children, and they are always most welcome - no need for 'good' behaviour! There is a short  'reflection' at around 11 am. Please come and join us, whether you are a church regular, occasional visitor, or totally new to us!

The Holy Communion service at 8:30 is from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, but there are no hymns or singing and takes only around 30 minutes. It makes a good start to a Sunday for those who have a hectic day ahead.
