Welcome to the Cockfield Benefice

Dear friends
Whilst we are in lockdown once again we are unable to gather for public worship, however our Churches are open for private prayer (see below).

This Sunday is Advent Sunday (29 November) and we will be livestreaming our service from Cockfield Church at 10am.  It’s a service of Holy Communion, so please have some bread and wine ready at home to join in with communion.
You do not need to be a member of facebook to access the service, just use this link in your browser bar:

Here is a link to the service sheet: Advent Communion

We have been experiencing some technical difficulties with our livestreaming of late, so if you find accessing the service live at 10am difficult, come back at 11am when the recording of the service will be available at http://www.facebook.com/pg/cockfieldbenefice/posts

I do hope you enjoy the service!

Revd Sharon
