Living the life...telling the story....visit us at

Dear friends, 

We are coming to the end of recorded services online: with the return of live services since March, and with the very low incidence of infection in the area, it is time to return to congregational worship; some of our services are held outside, others inside and some half in half out, but it is safe. We continue to take precautions, and as we have seen locally, very few locals have contracted the virus and very, very few were hospitalised. The sunshine is most welcome as the ultra-violet rays kill off the virus very quickly, although we are praying for some rain as local farmers recognise the lack of it has slowed the growth of the crops.

Tomorrow’s live services are: 

Candover Valley end:

10.00                       Preston Candover             Family Service 

11.15                       Brown Candover                Morning Worship CW

Farleigh end:-

  9.45                       Dummer                             Holy Communion CW

11.15                       Ellisfield                              Morning Praise

For all indoor services remember to wash hands before coming, to spatially distance, use hand sanitizer on entry, and wear masks if inside unless you are taking part. (not needed outside as long as spatial distancing).

David has now discontinued online services as viewing numbers are in single figures, and Stephen’s service this weekend will be the last for the moment, although the skills we have gained can be put to good use any time. So there’s only one online service tomorrow, 25 April, from Farleigh; the link is:-

But we may continue to send letters out to highlight shortly the Ten Days of Prayer from Ascension Day to Pentecost – May 13 to May 23rd, under the title “Thy Kingdom Come” with links to zoom prayer times and announcements of live prayer times as well.

This coming Wednesday is Farleigh Parish Annual Parochial Church Meeting, at 7.00 p.m. on Zoom, so the Wednesday Fellowship group will not be meeting this week, but will carry on the following week. The Link for APCM is:

Meeting ID: 878 0171 6686

Passcode: 449212

Any urgent pastoral needs, do get in touch with David or Stephen  - we are available on the phone, email, Zoom and in person at a social distance.

Every blessing,  

David and Stephen
