Services in Church

Posted on:

Each week, we hold a variety of services in our church buildings. This will include a service of Holy Communion at one of the churches around the Benefice each week. (A current list of planned service through to the end of May is further down the page)

For the most up to date information please see our Facebook page or send an email to hello@cinderford-churches.org.uk.

The 11.00 am service each week at St Stephen’s, Cinderford will be livestreamed to our YouTube Channel and Facebook page.

There is no need to book to attend any of the services, and hand sanitiser is available to use on the entrance to each church building. Please don’t come if you are showing signs of illness. Although all restrictions have now been lifted, due to the number of cases locally and the desire to protect each other as best we can, we are still suggesting that masks to be worn if you feel able to do so whilst in church buildings.

Please be aware that some of our services will be recorded or livestreamed. If you do not wish to be recorded, please speak to the service leader or a churchwarden who can advise you where to sit off camera. Please be aware the camera is not streaming during communion, so you can choose to take communion or receive a blessing without being recorded or livestreamed.
