Poynton Parish Church - provisions during coronavirus

Sunday services and midweek meetings have been suspended.  This is how we will be doing church differently.

Sundays and Holy Week

On Sundays, from 10am - 10:30am we will live stream a small service, which will be instead of our normal services. There will be announcements, a reading, and a sermon.  Also, there will be a short meditation on Maundy Thursday at 7:30pm and reflections on Good Friday at 2pm. These will be via our church Facebook page. You do not need to be a member of Facebook to access this page; it will also be then put onto our website. All members of all four congregations are encouraged to engage with this medium.


Sermons from the Sunday streamed service will appear on the website sermon page as usual.

Daily Dose of Joy

A daily reflection on Peter’s first letter - an apt one as its a pastor writing to believers who are scattered, exiled, and suffering.  This will be streamed live on facebook each morning at 9am here. Led by Aled. Catch up links may also be be accessed from our website here.

Jumping for Joy

Announcing Daily Dose of Joy for primary school aged children! S.T.U.I.P.D Man (a character I invented five years ago) will through his unique brand of comedy help children to have time each week to focus on one big and good thing about God.  This is streamed live on Facebook and catch up links are on the website.

Lent Course on Prayer

After the first week we were no longer able to meet together for our lent course but this was streamed live via our facebook page on Mondays 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th March.   You can catch up on our website and download study sheets here.  Led by Aled.

Instructions for using Zoom in Homegroups

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).


Sadly it has not been possible to distribute the April edition of Grapevine, our parish magazine. However, an online version is available here. It is well worth reading and contains a colour photo of Matthew - who has been appointed as our new vicar - and his wife, Kate. Matthew’s induction is set to be on 21st July.
