Welcome to St Helen's Church, Berrick Salome
Sunday 21 August 2022 - Service of Holy Communion - 9:30 am
The next public worship at St Helen's will be a Service of Holy Communion starting at the earlier time of 9:30 am.
With the hot weather continuing you are very welcome to make use of St Helen's Church (which is open and cool inside!) if you would like to chill out, sit and read, sleep, work or possibly, if you’re lucky, even watch YouTube...
There is a tap in the car park if you need water to drink; anything else you’ll have to take your own!
Berrick and Roke Garden Fete
Our sincere thanks to all who attended the Garden Fete earlier in the month - the visitors, the many helpers, and, of course, our special gratitude to Sue and the whole Clayton family, who not only prepared Lower Farm’s garden thereby providing the most perfect venue, but who turned out in force to help everything to run smoothly.
The funds raised will help maintain our unique, historic village church, ensuring it is here for the weddings, baptisms, burials and worship of future villagers (and as a peaceful, open and cool refuge from the soaring heat!).

A Prayer by the Archbishop of Canterbury for Ukraine
God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for those who fear for tomorrow,
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
