Welcome to the Holsworthy Benefice Website. We are five Church of England parishes in and around Holsworthy
THE CHURCH IS STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE.
it is sad, and for some heart breaking, but really important, that all churches are now to be closed until further notice. There will be no services of Holy Matrimony or Holy Baptism, Funerals will be at the graveside or in the crematorium with limited numbers.
We must remember that the building is not the church, but that we are the church. We continue to be the church by being the hands and feet of God today. This includes being a listening ear on the phone and supporting people. It includes being patient when queues are long. It is by not taking the last loaf of bread when you have some in the freezer.
One of the things we can all do during this difficult and worrying time is to pray. Pray at home alone and pray with one another on the phone.
help us to trust you,
help us to know that you are with us,
help us to believe that nothing can separate us from your love revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
If you are struggling please do be in touch.
Yours in Christ
