Latest Update Regarding Coronavirus Situation

Following the latest advice from the government regarding the precautions taken to delay the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the church leadership team have taken the decision to suspend all services, groups and activities in the church building until further at present. 

Plans are in place to start reopening the Church - see below for details.

Church Reopening - upcoming services

· You will be required to wear a mask unless you are exempt for medical reasons.

· You will need to remain in your ’family bubble’ socially distanced from others.

· Unfortunately we cannot sing.

· You must not hang around at the end to socialise.

· You must bring your own drinks if required.

Other Church groups will open at various stages as and when the leaders feel it is appropriate.

 

If the Governments roadmap continues on course we would be looking at our first morning service on Sunday 27th June at 10:30am when we can celebrate being back together as a whole family again.

We would emphasise that if the National Roadmap is delayed, then the above dates will also be delayed


Easter Trail

Come on an Easter journey with us!

Tewkesbury Churches Together would like to invite you to share Easter with us in a different way this year. Although we as a group of nine Churches can’t all join together for our Good Friday March of Witness or invite you to gather together with us as we normally do for safety reasons, we have created a walking trail where we can at least join together in Spirit as one community with you.

From Palm Sunday, 28th March, and then again from Easter day, 4th April, each of our nine Churches across Tewkesbury have ‘Prayer Stations’ outside of our buildings which make up a lovely walking trail to enjoy individually or as a family.

See our Easter Trail Page for all the details


The Prayer Group

Prayer Group continues to meet for Prayer Walks in pairs, and online. 

We are a house of prayer for all people. Please join in and let's pray together.

If you have any prayer requests or would like to link up with us for a prayer walk, phone conversation, or online, please contact Tina Ash 

07516 410100
