Corona Virus Update

Following government advice the Church of England nationally has suspended all public services.

Parishes are encouraged to look after each other and to reach out to those in their communities who may need support and practical help during this time.

However we do also intend to continue to practice our faith, pray, and to worship God - perhaps more important than ever.

How will we do this?

By sharing online resources that you can download and use at home, signposting good websites and smartphone apps, and through livestreaming some events.

If you are on Facebook look for the 'Avon-Swift Benefice' page and connect with us.

Some free smartphone apps that we recommend for home/family use;

  • Pray As You Go
  • Lectio 365
  • Take Time
Why not install one and make it a part of your regular routine?

Some websites that will give you a worship experience, or something to meditate on;
