Our vision in the Whittlewood Parishes is to know God better, love others and reach out with the good news of Jesus.
Whittlewood Parishes - Sunday Worship
Thank you to everyone who continues to participate in our worship together every Sunday and for your feedback. With the continuing situation it is our intention to offer a 10am service via Zoom every Sunday that the church remains closed. (Zoom is a web based group conference site) which you should be able to access by using the following link.
This Sunday is the Patronal Festival for Abthorpe St John the Baptist.
Next week we will be having a Zoom Pet service. If you would like your pet to be included then please send a picture to Reverend Paul with the pets name and your name. These pictures will be shown during the service on 5th July.
