Church of England Diocese of Southwark St. Andrew Croydon

2nd Sunday of Easter

11 Apr 2020, midnight
Church_news From_the_Vicar Easter Notices

CHURCH CLOSED To confirm what you will almost certainly already have gathered the church is now closed until further notice, but still we endeavour to maintain our common life virtually and distantly, yearning for the day when we can gather again at the Minster and for the Coronavirus crisis to be at an end.

SERVICES THIS WEEK ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Services will be streamed on the Messy Church at St Andrew's Croydon Facebook page. Some will be live streamed and some have been prepared in advance. We are also seeing if we can get them on to YouTube as that enables subtitles to be displayed and therefore more accessible for the hard of hearing.

THE BRIDGE, is available online via the Diocese of Southwark website:  https://southwark.anglican.org/news/the-bridge/2020/
