Following the most recent announcement of the Government’s roadmap we have resumed communal worship around the Benefice. Please check the Service information tab Calendars & Events – Benefice of Inkberrow with Cookhill and Kington with Dormston (cofe-inkberrow.org.uk) and newssheets for updates in respect of when and where services will be held. Please note that the pre-recorded Sunday Service and Zoom Church @11 have now ceased, however, the Wednesday pre-recorded service will continue for the foreseeable future. We are also planning to periodically livestream some of our services from St Peter’s Church via our YouTube Channel (search the North Avon Group). Please see the service times tab for more information as to when this is applicable.
As a Benefice we shall be continuing to take a cautious and sensible approach remembering that the use of facing coverings is not for ourselves but also for the protection of others. Therefore from the 19th when attending collective worship, people will be asked to wear a face covering when entering and leaving the Benefice Churches. Once seated and where social distancing is possible people may remove their face covering, however face coverings will be required when singing in church (as singing projects aspirants into the air). Please also continue to observe good hygiene practises by using the hand sanitiser provided. We trust you will appreciate the rationale behind these requirements, which will be kept under review on a regular basis. Thank you in advance for your continued cooperation.
Please note that St Peter’s Church, Inkberrow, St Paul’s Church, Cookhill and St James’ Church, Kington are currently open daily for private prayer, however St Nicholas’ will remain closed for private prayer but open for planned services as advertised.
Finally we would however like to draw your attention to the fact that despite the governments vaccine programme, certain groups of people may be at increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19. It is therefore important for clinically extremely vulnerable individuals to continue to keep their number of social interactions low and to reduce the amount of time spent in settings where maintaining social distancing might be difficult. While those at extra risk and the ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ are advised of the risks of attending permitted activities, worship and events, any decision to do so is theirs alone.
We are a friendly and active group of Christians, privileged to worship and serve in a beautiful rural setting. We welcome people from all backgrounds. Whether you are a life-long Christian, a newer Christian, or simply exploring the concept of faith, we would love to get to know you. Please do come and join us at any service or event, or contact us for information or assistance.
From traditional to contemporary, we share in a wide range of worship, in both formal and informal settings.
We advocate unity in diversity and celebrate the different talents and backgrounds of our congregation.
Our desire is for Jesus to be at the centre of all of our worship. We strive to come before God in spirit and in truth, ready to receive His love and His will for our lives.
With activities ranging from children’s groups to a monthly luncheon club, from the friendship and community of cell groups through to individual listening and bereavement support, we aim to serve our local villages and offer something for everyone.
