2 May 2021 - FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed!  Alleluia


HANDS ~ FACE ~ SPACE ~ FRESH AIR

please remember to keep the last five minutes before the services, and especially the time during the administration of Holy Communion, for quiet prayer and reflection (a bell will be rung before the main service at Sherburn)

Welcome to our services today. Sherburn services (and the service from Aberford on the first Sunday of the month) continue to be streamed on Sherburn church Facebook page & WhatsApp.

Micklefield: A huge thank you to everyone who put so much effort into the Peckfield Disaster Memorial Events.

Benefices Eucharist Sunday 30 May, 10.00am (note the time), Sherburn.  Please note there will be NO other services in the Benefices that day.

It is hoped that all services are now reverting to 'normal', but with Compline replacing Evensong on the Third Sunday of the month at Sherburn. However, Sung Eucharist at Sherburn in May will be on the fourth Sunday, which is Pentecost, rather than the usual third Sunday.
One BIG exception: Phil will be ordained Priest at Sherburn on Sunday 4 July at 11.00am by the Bishop of Selby,  This will therefore be a Benefices service so that everyone can attend.
Also, Caroline will be ordained Deacon in York Minster on Saturday 26 June, at 4.30pm., but we are still awaiting more details of who can attend etc.

Sherburn Giving: PLEASE consider joining The Parish Giving Scheme if you can; see letters & leaflets for full details.
