Special Services


Coronavirus (COVID-19). April 2020 : We are all concerned by the pandemic that is affecting much of the world. We were instructed by our Archbishops to cease all services and home groups or any other non-urgent meeting but are now getting back to a semblance of normality.

Services at St Mary the Virgin Church Silchester

We recently conducted an on-line survey of those on our church mailing list to find out how they felt about church services at the present time. We also had a churchwardens meeting to think about future church events etc

We are still analysing the survey, but initial results show that many want us to continue with our 10.00am Sunday morning on-line Zoom services for the time being; the convenience of the service and the current Covid constraints and concerns about services in church being some of the reasons. So as long as there remains significant support for the Zoom service, I anticipate it continuing probably until Advent (end of November). 

However, in the meantime in addition to the 10.00am Sunday Zoom we will be holding communion services in church at 8.00am on the first and third Sundays in the month and for the last time this summer there is 5.00pm Compline (Night Prayer) on the fourth Sunday.

In September this means:

8.00am Sunday 6 September

in Church

Book of Common Prayer Communion (said)

8.00am Sunday 20 September

in Church

Common Worship Communion (said)

5.00pm Sunday 27 September

In Church

Compline (Night Prayer)

10.00am Sundays 6, 13, 20,27
