Services during lockdown

For our parishioners with internet access, at 10am each Sunday we will hold our regular virtual service of morning prayer using an internet Zoom meeting  followed by an informal chat session over coffee at 10.45am also by Zoom.

Our vicar, Canon Rob McLaren, records a regular short video to help us worship together. These can be accessed via our main website

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday starting at 9am there will be a shortened Morning Prayer service through Zoom.

On Thursday morning at 9.30am there will be a Special Prayer meeting again through Zoom.

The joining details for the Zoom meetings  have been sent to all our parishioners with email addresses.  We’re sorry we can’t open these Zoom meetings up to everyone but if you are local to Holmes Chapel and would like to join in, please let us know by email
