Join us on YouTube
The Sunday online (YouTube) service starts at 10.30am, but why not join us from 10.15 so that you can greet other members of the congregation via YouTube Live Chat and hear some wonderful organ playing! The online service is also available to catch up later.Links to the recorded Sunday service on YouTube and the order of service are added a day in advance.
The 9am 'in person' service at St Olave's has been temporarily suspended (from and including 10 January 2021). Rev'd Liz, the Church Wardens and the PCC have considered the issue carefully in recent days and feel we can not give assurances that it is safe to meet in person at St Olave's at the moment. The church is also closed for private prayer.
We will review the situation regularly and seek to reopen as soon as it is reasonable to do so. Thank you for your understanding and support.
LATEST LOCKDOWN NEWS
Saturday 9th January 2021
Temporary Closure of St Olave’s Church
After careful consideration we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend our 9am ‘in person’ service at St Olave’s. Under the current conditions we do not feel we can create a truly safe environment to worship in. St Olave’s Church is also closed for private prayer at the moment. We realise this will be disappointing news for some and we will review the situation regularly to ensure we are reopening as soon as it is reasonable.
Our online Sunday service at 10:30am will continue, and is always available on catch-up using the link at the top of this page. The order of service contains the weekly intercessions. Our church prayer cycle is also available for use further down this page, with an additional link to prayers and resources specifically for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you for your prayers, support and understanding.
