Worship at Home

Important Notice about Public Worship
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England Churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.

This means all services across the Tove Benefice (Towcester, Greens Norton, Easton Neston & Bradden) are suspended and all churches will be closed following government advice. Please read the Archbishops most statement and join us along with the Archbishops in prayers.
Until further notice there will be no Church weddings or baptisms.  Funerals can still take place by only at the graveside or in crematoriums and only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement.
If you wish to speak with Revd Paula or Revd Lulu the number is 01327 350459.
Please do share this post widely and let people not on Social Media know.

Sunday 5th April 2020 - Palm Sunday 

Today is Palm Sunday - the day when Christians celebrate Jesus' triumphant arrival in Jerusalem. In church we'd normally receive Palm Crosses and have them blessed. Obviously this year we can't do that so here is a video of how to make a Palm Cross. Even our 5 year old was able to help make this and we have put it on display  at the vicarage window - where might you put yours?? 

Alterntively You may like to colour this Bible Mat designed by the Go Team from Bath & Wells Dicoese - .
















Also on Palm Sunday our thoughts also turn to the passion narrative - this past week the deanery clergy have recorded Matthew's Passion and that is also below for you to view.  Get yourself a mug of something sit back and watch this 20mins video...
