The Death of HRH Prince Philip
A message from Rt Revd Jo Bailey Wells, Bishop of Dorking
I was so sorry to hear today of the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He has provided huge service to our Nation and the Commonwealth for all my life and longer, both on his own account and in his unswerving support of Her Majesty the Queen through the many joys and challenges of the past seven decades. Our thoughts today are with the Queen and members of the Royal Family, that they might know the presence of the living God as they mourn his loss. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Upcoming on-line service
'From Fear to Faith' Sunday 11th April 2021, 10am
This morning’s service was recorded before we heard the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip on Friday. We will be giving thanks for his life and praying for the Queen and all the members of the royal family in church this morning. This Sunday we explore the journey that the disciples took from being locked down ‘for fear of the Jews’, to the pinnacle of John’s Gospel as Didymus (aka Thomas) declares “My Lord and my God!” Do join us for this service of readings, teaching, prayer and song in worship of God.
The Church continues to be alive and active, and our worship of God and our care for each other continue.
We are pleased that our church is open again:
On Sundays at 10.00am we offer a simple said service of Holy Communion in church. Booking must be made in advance: please see the note below for details.
On Mondays to Saturdays from 9.00am to 5.00pm the church is open for individual private prayer.
We have developed ways of supporting everyone in our parish who wishes to be part of our Christian fellowship.
We continue to offer online services and are posting videos and messages on this website.
Please see here for further information, including the Rector's weekly emails (most recent 8 April )

Worshipping in Church
Church in Person
On Sundays at 10.00am we are pleased to offer a simplified weekly service in church. This will usually be a said service of Holy Communion. Sadly current restrictions mean that there will be no sharing of the Peace, communion will be received in one kind only (i.e. no sharing of the communion cup), no singing and there will be no refreshments afterwards.
Because we must restrict numbers in order to keep people safe, you need to let us know in advance if you would like to be present. We'll operate on a 'first-booked, first served' basis. Please click on the 'Eventbrite' logo on the right to book a 'ticket'.
Please note that each 'ticket' is for up to 4 people (the most we can seat in one pew) from one household or bubble. If your group is 4 or less from the same household or bubble, you only need one ticket. If you are booking for more than 4 from the same household, or for more than one household, then please book the appropriate number of tickets. Thank you
