On-line prayer, services, support and information

(please let us know if printed materials needed for those not online).

On Sundays there is a short Spiritual Communion Service to pray at home
https://www.chelmsford.anglican.org/spiritual-communion

You can use your imagination: light a candle, play some music or hymns, and use pictures from books or the internet to help your time of prayer.

Sunday readings are on the Sunday Red Sheet. They could be used alongside the Spiritual Communion service.
