Wye Church is open daily for private prayer. Please observe the social distancing rules, wear a face mask, sanitise and sign in the visitors book in the porch when you visit. Although the church is not currently open for public worship, there is a service live-streamed at 10 am every Sunday via the Wye Benefice Virtual Church Facebook group and you are very welcome to join us. Rest assured that we will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. Please check back here for updates.
In line with Governement guidelines most of our churches within the Wye Benefice will not be having any public services until the earliest 16th May. Please do check with wardens for the individual churches for the most up-to-date information.
Members of Wye Church flower team have been busy creating fabulous Easter and Spring themed arrangements. View them here.
Stay safe and God bless. Rev Ravi Holy
THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH
In normal times, a Book of Condolence to remember His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh would have been available for people to sign in Wye church. However, because of Covid, the government and National Church have asked local churches not to do this and to sign an online book of condolence instead:
Nonetheless, you are welcome to go in to the church to pray, reflect and pay your respects. Please wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and sign in for track and trace, ideally using the QR code or else the sheet provided. Meanwhile, we pray for Her Majesty the Queen and for the rest of the Royal Family at this difficult time.
God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
