Easter Eggs and Easter Booklets for Canley Food Hub

Claire and Karen dropped off 150 Chocolate Easter eggs and copies of the Bible Society’s “All about Easter” booklet that we’re using for our Easter service this year to Canley Food Hub as a blessing to those in our local area who are in need. Let’s pray for them to be received and read as well as eaten! Click to see a larger version of the photo.

Easter – A Resurrection Celebration!

As lockdown restrictions ease in England and the “stay at home” order is lifted, we are able to welcome you to celebrate Easter with us in the church building on Sunday 4th April at 11am (or at home on the livestream as we have been doing for the past few months too!) 

As social distancing regulations are unchanged, you will need to book your place in the service and follow the other legal requirements.

As well as the Easter worship service, join us from Monday to Thursday for daily Bible readings both on Facebook and here on our website and a zoom communion service at 10:30 on Good Friday

New to the church? Connect @ Canley

If you’re new to the area, new to the church or a student, join us every first and third Sunday of the month at 3pm. The first Sunday will be a quiz that’s open to everyone including children and on the third Sunday we’ll be doing a series of Bible studies. Contact us for a link to join (or click on the latest Touchstone above!)

Christmas Services

You are welcome to join us online for our Christmas services this year. There are now no spaces left for “Carols by Candlelight” but you can still sign up to be on the reserve list. Christmas Day and Sunday 27th December are both online only – check back here or on the Christmas page for links to the video streams.

Celebrate Christmas with Canley Community Church!

Canley Christmas InvitationJoin us each Sunday up to Christmas by booking online, joining a live stream or catching up later in the week! We will have special services on Sunday 20th – our family carol service – and Christmas Eve with our Carols by Candlelight.

If you want to invite family and friends there are a few ways to do it. There are invitation cards that you can collect from the church building if you come to a service or contact Doug if you’d like some dropped off. You can also like the invitation on Facebook and share it with everyone – it has details of how to join at home from anywhere in the world!

Sunday worship – back in the building!

With the move from Lockdown to Tier 3 restrictions we will be able to worship together in the building from Sunday 6 December. We will be following Covid guidelines including pre-booking and the use of sanitizer, masks and ventilation – bring a warm coat as windows will be opened. As before in the autumn, the sermon may be pre recorded rather than live and the service will be live streamed so that those not in attendance can watch at home. We will also produce a DVD for those who need one but this will not be available until after the service. We look forward to being able to worship together in the church building.

To book in to attend the service, email Karen kc3927@aol.com or use the online booking form.

Building Closure

It is with sadness that we confirm that, in line with Government restrictions, the church building will be closed for all activities from 5th November to December 2nd. This includes the café as well as our services. It is planned that we will continue to live stream the Family Service from the building at its usual time of 11am on Sunday mornings. Only those taking part in the service will be able to attend the building. For those who have no internet access we will continue to produce DVD copies of the service.

During this difficult time we continue to support members and friends of the church with phone calls, doorstep visits and practical support where needed. Thank you to all of those who are helping with this.

It has been a great joy to be back in the building for the month of October and, God willing, we look forward to being back in the building in December, but whatever happens we plan to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas is not cancelled!
