Welcome to St Gregory’s Parish Church!


A warm welcome to St Gregory's Marnhull !


In light of the covid19 pandemic the church building is currently closed for public worship and private prayer.

However our church life continues through our prayer, our love and our practical care for those in our community.


There is a new contact system for members of St Gregory's and a member of the church family will be getting in touch with you very soon to say hello.

If you haven't had a call by Monday 6th please contact Revd Gaenor.

You will find this Sunday's intercessions written by church members on the 'intercessions' tab.

Here are the readings and collect (prayer) for Sunday 29th March, Passion Sunday:

Ezekiel 37:1-14 

Psalm 130

Romans 8:6-11

John 11:1-45

Collects for Passiontide

Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

(or)
Gracious Father,
you gave up your Son
out of love for the world:
lead us to ponder the mysteries of his passion,
that we may know eternal peace
through the shedding of our Saviour’s blood,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

There are plenty of other worship resources available for you to use on www.churchofengland.org 

Please contact Revd Gaenor or the churchwardens if you would like a chat on the phone or some practical support or have a prayer request at this difficult time. See 'contacts'.

We are fully supportive of the new Marnhull Village Helpline operating from 8am on Monday 30th March. Please see 'community' tab for details.


With sincere thanks

Every blessing

Gaenor
