8am Communion (at St. Mary's) Print

Most Sundays Holy Communion is celebrated at St Mary's Church in Warwick at 8am for those who wish to attend a Eucharistic service.   This is a 'said' service using the Book Of Common Prayer.   More details...  

 

(St Nicholas Church and St Mary's are part of a Team Ministry; this 8am service is one of our links from the Old Warwick Team.)

On certain special occasions throughout the year we hold Family Services instead of our usual communion services.   These services are suitable for children and all are welcome, including our uniformed organisations:

Christening / Baptism Print

Baptism ("christening") is a way of symbolising God's love, care and call on a person's life.

When we have a baby baptised (in a "christening" service), we are saying that our greatest wish for them would be for them to grow up knowing God's love in Jesus for themselves and to follow him throughout their lives. The service therefore asks parents and godparents to say in front of the congregation that they themselves are followers of Jesus and that they are going to bring their child up as a member of the Christian church.

 

 

If you do not feel you would be happy making the statements and promises involved in baptism, but would still like a service to say 'Thank You' for the gift of your child then you might want to consider a Service of Thanksgiving.    This is still an appropriate service to invite family and friends to a celebration of your baby's birth.

 

It's not just for babies and children - anyone of any age who has not been baptised, may decide for themselves that they would like to be baptised. If you have come to accept that Jesus Christ is Lord and would like to make that spiritual reality 'public', with a service of Baptism, then please talk to a member of the clergy.

 

For enquiries regarding christening / baptism or a thanksgiving service, the place to start is your parish church; check here to find details of your parish.   For St Nicholas Church, please contact our Parish Administrator.  If you are not familiar with the church you are welcome to call in and see us on a Sunday morning.

 

These services can take place during the normal 10am Sunday worship service or at 12 noon on a Sunday, although we do not usually hold baptisms on the first Sunday of a month.   St. Nicholas Church does not charge for these services.

A MESSAGE FROM LINDA

Please also see our Facebook page for further information during this time.

 

Dear St Nicholas Church Family,
 
The Lord be with you.
(and also with you!)
 
I do hope that you are all keeping well and safe. I have heard from some of you and know you are doing everything you can to stay in and save lives!
 
I am conscious that many of us are fortunate in being able to work from home, or just be at home, but others of you are on the front line working hard to keep the country & NHS going. To you, we applaud and offer our love and prayers. I think particularly of those in our congregation who work in the NHS/hospitals - Anita Morgan (Paediatric Consultant), Steph Brannon (Radiographer), Dayalan Clarke (Surgeon volunteering in India) & Chris Foy? Then there are those of you who are key workers in other areas or those enabling them to work e.g. those teachers/support staff currently supporting pupils/students - Angela Sharif & Liz Banyard and maybe others e.g. Jess Aldridge, Sallyann Bourne, Emily Burgess, Alice Dunkley. We also remember those who work/volunteer in our Hospices & Care Homes & providing other essential services. Do let me know if you are also working as a key worker so we can specifically remember you in our prayers daily! We offer you  A BIG THANK YOU! I am sure many of us will be clapping you all at 8pm this evening with the rest of the country. 
 
Sometimes it is hard to know how to pray, although pray we must!! There are lots of resources on line but today I have attached a copy of St Mary's Church, Warwick Prayer Diary for April. It is very well put together and some helpful prayers. Maybe we can do our own Prayer Diary in May? If you would be interested in being involved with this please let me know.
The prayer for tomorrow (Friday 3rd April) is: "Lord Jesus, who healed those whom others feared to touch, we thank you for all who work in our health service, and all responding to the call to return to work from retirement or other occupations. Strengthen, bless and protect them (and their families) as they care for increasing numbers of patients. Amen."
 
For those of you who have been doing the Lent Course on a Thursday evening, I attach our session for this week 5: Bound together in love and sacrifice. There are still two more sessions - one for Holy Week and one post Easter. Look out for those next week. On Saturday I will send the ideas for our worship on Sunday (Palm Sunday) - this will also include an All Age Service for children & families. Next week we will be producing material to help us pray through Holy Week - something for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
 
For those lucky enough to have more time on our hands, I wonder how you are occupying yourselves? Have you come across the Quarantine Choir who wrote their own Psalm (151?) for the current times? It is very good.
 

 
Finally, I leave you with a lovely video clip encouraging us to put our faith into Jesus's hands. This was sent to me by one of my ballet teachers (who is not a Christian as far as I know!)
 
 
 
With best wishes,
 
Linda
