Welcome to Leominster Priory!
The Priory is open for communal worship, and we're keeping all our arrangements under review as the situation changes. We are following Government guidance and taking all reasonable measures to reduce risk to ensure that people are safe coming into church. Everyone will be asked to sit safely distanced, masks are worn, hands sanitised entering and leaving the church, and no mingling is allowed. Our main Sunday service is a Eucharist at 10:00am. The Wednesday 10.30am Eucharist has also now resumed, as has daily morning prayer. You can find more details in the 'Worship' section. The risk assessment for gathered services can be read here and a risk assessment for our choir can be read here.
At the May PCC meeting, it was decided to maintain an online service every Sunday, but to move to a combination of live-streams and pre-recorded services. From now on, the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays will be live-streamed to the Priory's facebook page as it happens at 10am, where it will stay available for the rest of the day. From Monday, a shortened version of the service (without the music) will be available from the Priory's YouTube channel throughout the week. The 1st and 3rd Sundays will continue to be pre-recorded in the style we've used since last March.
By phone, you can hear our latest Sunday service by dialling 01568 609920 at any time. Usual call charges apply.
Evening Services can be accessed here.
The church remains open for private prayer and as a quiet space from 9.30am to 4pm every day. It will also be open for funerals and marriages, as allowed in law.
Prayer of the week: In these challenging times when not everyone is able to worship together we can still pray together. You will find prayers and reflections here.
The process of recruiting a new Rector is well underway. Please check on the 'Rector Vacancy information' tab to learn more.
