St Peter and St Paul’s Church is a Christian community worshipping in the heart of the village of Blockley in the beautiful North Cotswolds.  

We serve the people of Blockley and its surrounding villages and hamlets of Aston Magna, Dorn, Draycott, Northwick Park and Paxford. 

Revd Dana Delap

As a church, we are love to celebrate, we are inclusive, and our social and environmental responsibilities are important to us.  

All are welcome to join us in exploring how we can live life in all its fullness.

This week our mailing starts with some sad news. After a short illness, Graham Salmon of Church Gates, Blockley, died on Monday. We will miss him very much, and Brenda, Ginny, Beckie, Andrew and the family will be in our prayers.

For my daily prayer I have been using the C of E’s Time to Pray. This is a rather lovely book of prayers, also available as a free app (Pray) for phone and tablet which also has an audio of daily prayer. It means I can pray with someone else’s voice accompanying mine, which is much less lonely. I recommend it.

All the details for joining our Sunday worship on Zoom are now available at vace.church including the zoom link and the order of service. By phone as well as digitally, the link remains the same as on previous weeks.

This week, part of psalm 139 is set as one of our readings. It's all about how God knows us and is with us. Why not find some family photos? Think about how no two people are the same - even identical twins have different fingerprints! God has made as individuals, knows us and loves us just as we are. If you want to see and hear the Lego version of the Psalm (especially if you have children in your household) here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eQ7D-A00Bw

God bless you, Dana

Daily Prayer 

I say my prayers at 9am, using the Church of England’s Daily Prayer, which you can find as a free app simply called Daily Prayer. You can also join on the C of E website at https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/join-us-service-daily-prayer I would also recommend phone and tablet apps for daily prayer like Examen and Lectio365. And by phone you can access Daily Hope on 0800 804 8044. If you would like to pray with me at 9:00am on weekdays, CLICK HERE
