9th April 2021
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family at this time.
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
10th April 2021
After the sad news yesterday, we along with the rest of the country will observe the national period of mourning for His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The cross outside church will be an area of remembrance where floral tributes can be laid at any time. Please note Buckingham Palace has asked for donations to charity in lieu of flowers.
A book of condolence can be signed virtually on the Church of England website. www.churchofengland.org
Services between now and His Royal Highness' funeral will reflect the national period of mourning. Bookings can be made through the church office 01925 269861, please leave a message if you would like to attend/
As we are in a pandemic, we kindly ask anyone visiting St Wilfrid's to observe the social distancing requirements, including face masks indoors and use of sanitiser.

WORK ON THE NEW ANNEXE IS PROGRESSING
Work on the new annexe began on Monday 24th August. Our contractors are Grosvenor Construction Ltd. who are doing an excellent job and can continue to work during lockdown. A pathway through the churchyard has been fenced off to allow for the heavy machinery to access the site. The work will mean that for a time sections of the car park will be out of bounds and that the churchyard can only be accessed via the church track (down the side of the Parr Arms). The inconvenience will be worth it though and, as we see our beautiful new building emerge, we can give thanks to God for a new phase in our church's life. A huge thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have generously donated to this scheme.
Funds are still needed to complete the project. We need to push on to raise the money for Phase 2 which will see the resurfacing of the track, a new car park at the bottom of the track and a new pathway up through the churchyard leading to the annexe. Click HERE to find out more about how YOU can help.
Since 23rd March our income has been severely affected by the lockdown. There are still bills to pay and expenses connected to our ministry and mission. Please help by texting WILFS to 70085 to donate £5. THANK YOU
Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about out work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £5 but do

CHURCH AND FACE COVERINGS
Face coverings must be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus (COVID-19) and that they are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing
