Palm Sunday 5th April – Make your own Palm Cross

This Sunday is Palm Sunday.  Sadly, we will not be in church to receive our palm crosses, and so I invite you this year to make your own.  Then, on Sunday when you watch the YouTube Service you will be able to hold up your own home-made palm cross to be blessed for the year ahead.  They don’t have to be fancy (here’s one I made earlier!).   Just a cardboard cut-out cross and some string.  It’s not a competition but I’m sure you can do better than this and we love to see them so feel free to post them on our facebook page @stthomaschurchgroombridge.

Make way, make way, for the King of kings.

Make way, make way, and let his kingdom in!

If you would like to receive our weekly email and YouTube services please sign up here, if you have already signed up and still not receiving the email please contact our Parish Administrator Sarah on .

Meeting Together ZOOM Sunday 29th 10am

Many churches are meeting together online using  ‘Zoom’. We can connect up to 100 people at a time – but if that limit becomes a problem we can expand it. 

Our first Zoom meeting, at 10.00 on Sunday morning, will be primarily a social meeting; I shall conclude it towards 10.15 with a prayer and a blessing.

Equipment required – You need speakers, headphones or earbuds built into or attached to your device. A PC with a separate webcam is ideal. Laptops generally have a microphone and camera, and so will iPads and most Android tablets. If you plan to use an iPad or Mac, Apple insist that you download the free Zoom app from their own store, and it will save time to do this first.

Joining Instructions To join the meeting, just click on the link below below. You will be ‘muted’ when you join, and I can unmute people so that you can contribute, one at a time.

Church is Closed

Church is closed   A letter to clergy yesterday, from the Archbishops, says ‘Our church buildings must now be closed not only for public worship, but for private prayer as well and this includes the priest or lay person offering prayer in church on their own.’  I have now locked the church building.

The Church is the whole people of God, not the building – as much as we love that sacred space.
