National Lockdown 2021 Online Services

Services online until further notice

Tuesday Morning BCP services and our Sunday Services in the church building will not be taking place.  We anticipate that this will be the case until there is a significant change in the current situation (for example a lifting of the Lockdown), but will continue to review things as time goes on.  We will be holding our online Sunday service via our YouTube channel and we will also have a Kids Online Service.  Both of these online services will be available from first thing (by 1am) Sunday morning, so please do join us for worship in this way.

Finally, we would like to encourage you to continue to keep in contact with others, to take time to ask God if there is anyone who may need a phone call, and to hold on to the words of John 1:5…

‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’

Encounter services – What are they?




.............and coffee....lots of coffee..

4th Sundays at St. Martin's Church Desford are a bit different:

We spend plenty of time singing songs of praise, led by the band, the worship is extremely relaxed
and informal, witha mix of contemporary and traditional songs.

We also place great importance on understanding the Word, so we have very short bursts of
applied teaching. With regular use of videos and illustrations, these services are vary varied and engaging.
There is also plenty of space for us to pray for ourselves, our community, our nation and our world.

Children are very welcome at Encounter services and our open-plan area means that there is
plenty of space for pushchairs. All of the song words and any visuals are
presented on the Church's large screens, leaving your hands free.
There is also a very friendly and inclusive atmosphere.

Whether you are a church regular or a newcomer, just come as you are.
