Revd James’ sermons
We hold a benefice Eucharist every Sunday. Please refer to the service schedule page. Our churches are also open for private prayer:
St Hilda, Ampleforth – All day every day
St Oswald’s – Daily 1000 -1600
Holy Cross, Gilling – Daily from 10 00 am to dusk
Stonegrave Minster – from noon to 3 pm on Sundays.
Our desire to share the Christian hope and the experience of love that we have come to know in Christ continues to inform and inspire all that we do as a Christian community despite Coronavirus.
We pray that you are well and can find many things to give thanks to God for each day. Please do join us in worship if you can. We aim to send out weekly a benefice newsletter and the Sunday Bible readings. Please get in touch if you would like to receive this by email, or for any query you may have.
As well as leading services on the scheduled days, I am available at any time to arrange other support for baptisms, weddings, funerals and arranging burial plots in the churchyard.
In addition to activities in the church I am also available to visit people at home, especially those who are housebound, sick, bereaved or alone, suffering a sense of loss, or just needing someone to talk to. You don’t have to be a churchgoer, or religious, as I am here to offer support to all the residents in these parishes as a confidential and trustworthy friend.
If you have any ideas, thoughts or suggestions please feel free to get in touch with me on 01439 326024 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, and every peace and blessing to you.
Rev James Trowsdale
