The Lord calls us to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God - Micah 6:8
St John’s with St Mary’s is a friendly Church of England community in the heart of Devizes where we seek to walk openly and honestly with others as we learn to grow in God’s love. We invite you to experience and celebrate God’s love with us through worship and fellowship.
SERVICES DURING THE THIRD NATIONAL LOCKDOWN
While the church is closed for public worship, the parish of St John with St Mary is providing three options every week for people to join in worship.
Firstly, every Sunday morning a high-quality pre-recorded service, including organ music. This is the sort of worship we have been producing during previous lockdowns. This will be available as a première on both YouTube and Facebook from 8 a.m. on Sunday but you can click on the links below and watch at any time of the week after they are first premièred.
The accompanying text can be found on our Download Sermon page.
Secondly, every Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m., we will gather on Zoom to say Morning Prayer from Common Worship together on Zoom, led by Gerry. This will take around 30 minutes.
Please click on this link to join on Sundays 17, and 24 January https://zoom.us/j/93019923434?pwd=ajltL3prZGxUUGF3bDFHWmtWaTFoUT09
Thirdly, every Wednesday evening at 5.30 p.m., we will also gather on Zoom, again led by Gerry, this time to say Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer. This should take around 20-25 minutes.
Please click on this link to join on Wednesdays
from 13 January-17 February. https://zoom.us/j/97531799566?pwd=cVBuNm9BYjFBNERFeGFPT2FuUkFZUT09
Unfortunately, Zoom has currently disabled the ability for people to dial into events except for those with expensive paid accounts.
If anyone would like to help with any of the three services, for example by recording readings and intercessions for the Sunday pre-record or by leading one of the canticles or another part on the service at the Zoom worship, please let Gerry know by contacting him on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07521 440 622.
