Poynton Parish Church - provisions during coronavirus

Remembrance Sunday

Sadly, we are unable to hold our usual Remembrance Sunday service this year. However, we will be livestreaming our service via Facebook. Rather than physically attending the war memorial at 11am, please join us online as we broadcast the two minute silence, recorded at the war memorial earlier in the week.

Bonfire Night

In line with government guidelines, we are unfortunately unable to hold our annual bonfire and fireworks event this year.  Please do not leave wood at St Martin’s. We look forward to welcoming you back, with a bang, next November!

Holy Communion Services

We are sorry to say that the Holy Communion services which were taking place at St George's and

St Martin's will cease from 5th November in accordance with the new lockdown regulations.

Streamed Sunday Services

Our main Bible teaching and worship will be available on Facebook and YouTube at 10am on Sundays.  There will be an All Age slot towards the start of each week, and members of the team and congregations will be involved in leading, preaching, reading, praying and leading sung worship.

The church Facebook page can be accessed here.

Office News

Please note that our parish office is closed at the moment. Lucy is still able to receive calls and emails. We will check the post box during the week as well.  Please don’t come to the office; please contact via phone or email.

Instructions for using Zoom in Homegroups, After Church Coffee and Prayer First

Zoom enables lots of people to talk to together and to see each other. You can use a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.  The basic account is free and can be used for a “meeting” of  to 100 people at one time but meetings are limited to 40 minutes.  To find out more about how to set up Zoom download this guide (with thanks to Jesmond Parish Church).  

Homegroup leaders will provide log-in details for virtual homegroup meetings, after service coffee chats and Prayer First (Mondays at 8pm).
