Welcome to Leominster Priory!
In the light of the current high levels of Covid infections, the difficult decision has been made to close the Priory for communal worship from Friday 8th January till Thursday 4th March, in order to keep everyone safe. This will be reviewed on Monday 1st March.
Meanwhile, the church remains open for private prayer and as a quiet space from 9am to 4pm Monday to Saturday, and from 12 to 4pm on a Sunday. It will also be open for funerals and marriages, as allowed in law.
Evening Services can be accessed here.
Prayer of the week: In these challenging times when not everyone is able to worship together we can still pray together. Every week you will find a prayer we can share here . And this week you will also be able to read a Reflection for St Valentine's Day from Rev John Benson on the same page.
The process of recruiting a new Rector is well underway, and we want your views! Please check on the 'Rector Vacancy information' tab to learn more.
Upcoming Events at the Priory
PRIORY ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING
It is hoped that we will be able to hold the annual meeting on Sunday 25th April at 11:15. At this meeting, the Churchwardens and PCC are elected. The PCC is the body of people in our church which makes decisions and plans for mission, finance, care and repair of the building, worship and many other areas of our Priory life together. We need ideas and views from all parts of our congregation. IF YOU would like to make a difference, take part in the challenges and projects that will shape the future of the Priory and its people, please take time to consider being elected onto the PCC this April. For more information contact email@example.com .
PRIORY ELECTORAL ROLL
Are you on the Priory Electoral Roll? Joining the electoral roll is an important way of confirming your commitment to the Priory Community and to the vision of the church. Joining the electoral roll means that you can vote on church matters, attend the APCM (Annual Parochial Church Meeting) and stand for election to the PCC. Being on the Electoral Roll does not entail signing up to any additional commitments. However, it does help our church show its strength. Forms are at the back of the church and should, when completed, be handed to the electoral roll officer, Geoff Bricknell, before 9th April 2021. If you would rather complete the form electronically (or just print it out and complete it), you will find it here. The completed form can then be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org . The formal notification of the revision of the electoral roll will be posted at the Priory, but can also be read here.
Churches Together in Leominster would like to invite you to join a 5 session Lent Course by Zoom (telephone as well as online) , exploring how faith in God can change the world. More details on the News/Events tab.
