WELCOME TO ST. CUTHBERT AND ST. AIDAN’S WEBSITE
We are Church of England churches located in the North East corner of the ‘island’ of Portsmouth.
St. Cuthbert’s serves the community around the Baffins area and St. Aidan’s the Anchorage Park area of the parish.
The parish is a member of Inclusive Church and want everyone to feel welcome to join us on Sundays or at activities on other days of the week.
Do come and join us we will make you welcome.
May God bless you, today and in the future.
Revd. Allie Kerr, Vicar
St Cuthbert’s Church is now open for worship every Sunday morning at 10am. You still need to book via Anne Gard: 023 9263 9911 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring your own coffee to drink together in the Vicarage garden from 25th April (one week later than originally thought) after St. Cuthbert’s service. There are still services on line each morning.
We are hoping to start the 8am Holy Communion on May 16th (monthly services) and the Tuesday 9.30am services on May 18th (weekly services).
St. Aidan’s opens on Sunday 18th April at 9am and will worship fortnightly till June.
St. Cuthbert’s Community
Slowly and gently returning!
Two children’s groups are returning to the centre this week, so there are signs of returning to ’normal’.
They will join the pre-school which has been on its own in the centre since the lockdowns.
Other groups are a way off yet – sorry.
Due to the pandemic the centre does not have a caretaker or cleaner at the moment so if you can volunteer to help in the church or centre with any jobs just let us know.
It will be lovely to meet again, even with a few restrictions.
We are planning to re-open the café in church on May 17th , hopefully for 5 mornings a week.
We are trying to think of a name for it. Can you suggest anything? A free lunch to the winner – what more encouragement do you need to get your imagination going?
St. Cuthbert’s church is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.
We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults of the Diocese of Portsmouth and Church of England policy and practice.
Our parish policy which includes Disclosure & Barring (DBS) checks on those who work with young people and vulnerable adults s administered by the Safeguarding Team which is a subcommittee of the Parochial Church Council (PCC.)
