 Dear all,

Just a few things to make you aware of:

New Video Series

As we cannot meet together at the moment, I thought it would be good to do a new video sermon series called ‘A New Vision’. It is to give us a new perspective on life by looking at the Psalms. We start off in Psalm 2. Please visit this link to view- feel free to post comments, questions, suggestions and I will try to get back to you as quick as I can.


Sunday Worship

Every Sunday at 10am we hope to have a live act of worship. This week it will be broadcast from the vicarage.  You can find the latest Order of Service on our church website:


We would love you to send us prayer requests, which we will write on tags and hang on a cross, as a reminder that we are one in Christ. Please do email or phone us with your messages!



At this time we need to be acutely aware of the needs of those around us. Thank you for all that you are doing to show practical concern for others. With the church being closed, some of you have been asking how best to contribute to the local collection for the Food Bank – a service more necessary than ever. We will advise people of the new arrangements as soon as we can.

Caring for one another

There is a local Lechlade helpline for those need help and for those who can offer help.

It is 01367 248213 – please do it pass round. It is backed by lots of local volunteer groups.


Let us continue to keep in touch with one another, sharing both concerns and blessings. Let us also remind ourselves that our hope is in Christ: We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.’ (Heb 6: 19)

Every blessing in Christ’s name,

 Revd Andrew Cinnamond

Vicar – St. Lawrence, Lechlade
