Elsdon: St Cuthbert
Sadly, there will be no public in-person services at present, due to the pandemic. There will be a service by zoom (video or telephone link) every Sunday at 10.00 am to which everyone is warmly welcome. To receive a link, send and e-mail to [email protected]
The church building is open daily for private prayer and meditation - you are welcome to enjoy the peace of this beautiful building on any day (opening times approx 9 - 5). Hand sanitiser is provided. When permitted we worship in the church for Parish Communion on the second Sunday of the month at 11 am. Please bring a pen to sign in and wear a face covering. Seating is socially distanced, and the order of service will be on paper; offerings are placed on the plate as you enter; communion (in one kind) is offered.
We urgently need support to maintain the church building and to pay towards our share of the cost of ministry which supports the community at all times. You can donate on this page; by contactless giving or in the slot at the church; or by contacting Revd Elaine Ryder for the account details. Let us know if you wish your giving to be identified as supporting only the fabric and grounds or only the ministry, otherwise it will be available for use as needed.
The parish of Elsdon: St Cuthbert is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Newcastle’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.</div>
