St Gregory's Church during the Corona virus period.
As with all churches, St Gregory's Church has had to close in line with Government requirements. However,even though the building may be closed, the church is still very active in the community with the help of the modern technology of Facebook, the web, emails and the not so new telephone!
The feeling of community and the spiritual guidence of our ministry team is wonderful as everyone is finding new ways to continue worship. The Rev Tom Mumford has been busy on the internet giving us readings and services including Compline, a Maundy Thursday sermon, the Stations of the Cross for Good Friday morning and the Passion of Christ that we could read at 3pm on Friday afternoon.
The ministers have taken it in turns to write letters to keep us focused on the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and what is good in the world. These have been published on the web. We have even held a virtual coffee morning - through the wonders of conference calling - a first for many of us.
This is a time of change for us all, but be assured that the work of the church is continuing in the parish and if you wish to know more about this please contact one of our Ministry team.

Virtual Church Services
3rd May 2020
For the last two weeks we have had the opportunity to worship together through social media thanks to the skills of Revd Tom Mumford. Morning Prayer has been said, with members of the congregation taking part through readings and prayers. We are all very grateful for this opportunity to worshiop together in these times of self isolation.

Christ is Risen. Alleluia.
A huge thank you to Julia Jameson and her incredible flower arranging team. They have managed to put together a small but beautiful display that you will see attached. Although we are not able to celebrate the resurrection in our church building, we hope that those who pass on their daily 'government mandated' exercise will still see a physical sign of new life and hope that our building has represented in Sudbury for so many centuries.
Singing 'Thine be the Glory!', an ecumenical endeavour suggested by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. Several of the people in the flats opened windows to listen and to wish each other a "Happy Easter;"
