    We are holding a Holy Communion service both in church and on Zoom each Sunday at 10am. Join on Zoom from a smartphone, tablet or PC, or dial in from an ordinary telephone. If you would like to join our weekly service on Zoom, send an email to stjohnsmilford@hotmail.com to receive an invitation. A link to listen back to our most recent service is here. If you join us in church please be aware that numbers are limited. Please wear a face mask and follow any directions from stewards. We are now singing in church, from behind our masks, handing out hymn and service books, and have resumed selling 'porch produce', as we slowly reopen. We are now serving refreshments after the service again, which you are free to take into the church yard, if you prefer to stand and chat outside, and the weather allows.

    The church building is open for private prayer on Sundays 11-3pm and Wednesdays 9-3pm. There will be a Communion service in church only on Wednesdays at 10am. Please follow covid precautions, by wearing a mask when you enter church and keeping apart from others.

    The Eagles, our club for younger people (3-11 years) is now running again, during the 10am service on the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month.


    We continue to pray for safe passage through this situation.

    If you or someone you know requires assistance (spiritual or practical) please contact the Rev Clive Potter (milfordvicarage@gmail.com or 01483 414710) or the pastoral team through stjohnsmilford@hotmail.com, who are making phone calls and arranging supplies where needed.

    “But I call to God
    And the Lord saves me.
    Evening, morning, and noon
    I cry out in distress
    and he hears my voice.”

    Psalm 55 v 16-17
