We welcome those who wish to pray privately inside church. Please follow these simple rules to help keep everyone safe:
1. Do NOT come if you have any covid symptoms

3. Sanitise your hands on entering & leaving
4. Avoid touching things
5. Follow the guidance inside church

In line with Government requirements FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN, unless you are exempt.
We are keeping a log of who comes, to help the Test and Trace service. Please provide your name, phone number and where you went in church. This record will be kept for 21 days and then destroyed. We recommend you bring your own pen.

Take a reserved card and leave it where you sit, to warn others not to use the same pew.

A prayer card to guide your thoughts is available, if you pick one up please take it home or place in the quarantine bin.

From 15th June the inside of the church became a contractor-only zone and it is locked when they are not working (except for Sunday services and, when possible,  Private Prayer sessions).  If anyone has a special need to use the Church, please contact the churchwardens who will consider any particular situation.

DAILY HOPE is the FREE dialy dial-in worship phone line set up by the Archbishop of Canterbury offering music, prayers, reflections and full worship services 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It's been set up particularly for those unable to join online church services. Do  please pass this on - particularly to anyone you know who doesn't do online.

We offer support to those who are part of our church family and everyone who lives in the parish, that's not just Ladbroke but Chapel Ascote, Hodnell and Wills Pasture too. So if you need support, prayer or just someone to talk to, please get in touch, there are contact details on the home page.

On a practical level, church members are supporting Ladbroke Parish Council’s initiative.  Locals who need support or want to join the volunteer pool should contact Steve Morten on 07508  422 625

   May we who are merely inconvenienced
   remember those whose lives are at stake.

   May we who have no risk factors
   remember the most vulnerable.

   May we who have the luxury of working from home
   remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making ends meet.

   May we who have the flexibilty to care for our children when schools close
   remember those who have no options.

   May we who have to cancel our trips
   remember those who have no safe place to go.

   May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
   remember those who have no margin at all.

   May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
   remember those who have no home.

   As fear grips our country,
   let us choose love.

   During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other
   let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.
