A Message from the South Croydon Benefice 



Happy Easter!  Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!  Alleluia.

At Easter we celebrate Christ's victory over sin and death. His resurrection has brought humanity into a new relationship with God and brings the promise of everlasting life.

This message of hope is particually important in this time of crisis, but we are also here to offer practical support.  If we can help please contact a member of the ministry team.  We continue to pray for all who are  sick, anxious, or working to assist  those in need.  

We regret that public worship and activities are suspended until further notice.  The churches are closed for visits, private prayer, baptisms and weddings.  Members of our ministry team can still take funerals at the crematorium or graveside;  if you would like to discuss this pease contact me.  

Many of our services are now available on our YouTube Channel and we hope that you will join in from home. Service sheets csan be downloaded further down this page.  
If you haven't already, join our mailing list so that we can keep in touch and share resources:
