Worship suspended at the Vale

Unfortunately as a result of the COVID-19 virus, the difficult decision has been made to suspend all public worship, and currently all church buildings are locked. Lockdown is easing, but it is not yet possible to meet together physically for worship.

Fr Stuart will continue to celebrate Mass regularly and this will be streamed onto Facebook alongside other prayer. Currently the plan for every day except Friday is to have Morning Prayer at around 9am and Mass at around 10am – although this is subject to change. These will be streamed to our Facebook page, and Mass will be uploaded to our YouTube channel later in the day.

Our Facebook page can be found at https://www.valechurch.gg/facebook and an archive of services and sermons from Vale Church can be found at our YouTube channel https://www.valechurch.gg/youtube.

The Vale Church pewsheet for the Seventh Sunday of Easter can be downloaded here, and the whole order of service here. It was possible to join us for the Mass at 10am on Sunday as always by visiting https://www.valechurch.gg/facebook, and you can watch the mass again later on Sunday by scrolling down this page. You can still view previous services on our YouTube channel (see above).

Please pray for all those affected by COVID-19, and that these restrictions won’t last too long.

Wishing you every blessing. Fr Stuart
