Welcome to Tarporley Parish
One Parish, Three Churches. The parish includes the churches of St Helen in the centre of the village of Tarporley, St Thomas’, in the village of Eaton; and St John and The Holy Cross, in Cotebrook and Utkinton.
Covid-19: Suspension of regular Wednesday and Sunday Services.
Following Church of England guidance, all our regular Wednesday and Sunday Worship services in our Churches, St Helen Tarporley, St Thomas Eaton and St John and the Holy Cross Cotebrook, are suspended until further notice.
Unfortunately, following new protective restrictions, all three of our church buildings must also now be closed.
This means that our efforts must now be directed into being ‘Church’ to each other and making sure our community is kept encouraged and supported.
Please click on the links below, and each week I will endeavour to add some images and reflections on the Sunday Bible Readings so that we can continue to worship together even whilst apart.
These links enable the download of PDF documents as follows:-
A form of Worship at home. A new downloadable service sheet will be added for each day in Holy Week. Please click on the dated links below.
Enabling us to be 'Together even whilst apart'.
I can also send this material by email to those signed up for our E-News Letter. The E-news is available as a tab labelled 'Sunday Sheet' under the 'What's on' tab.
Even though we may not gather together at services:-
We can all make phone calls, send cards and notes and where appropriate leave gifts and necessary provisions on doorsteps.
We are fortunate to live in a community where we all watch over and help each other.
For further information and links to daily prayer and worship resources, please see the dedicated Church of England webpage
Should anyone who is staying at home, or feeling vulnerable or anxious, welcome a visit, phone-call or help with provisions please get in touch.
These are anxious times for everyone but we face them together and firm in our faith in a God who continues to hold us in his everlasting arms.
