St Stephen’s Church, Carlby

CHURCH FLOWERS February: 7th and 14th Ms S. Flint 

LENT No flowers 


hope you and your families have a good 2021. It did not start well so it can only get better. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all especially if you are in illness or uncertainty of jobs or missing the love of your family and friends. Our brilliant health service is doing its best and our scientists have now produced a vaccine which we hope is an answer to our prayers. As I write all three churches are closed, but we look forward to seeing more of you very soon. 

In the meantime we will be sharing church services on Zoom and you can be sent a link just before the service starts. Rosie Nelson has compiled a contact list for these services, so if you would like to be included please contact her on 01778 590238. There is no limit on numbers. 

We are very fortunate to have church wardens who have stepped in with their super IT skills to enable this to happen. However we are even more blessed to have Rev Jo who delivers such beautiful services using Zoom and YouTube. 

Some months ago we have changed the order of services with Jam Club on the 1st Sunday and All Age Family service on 2nd Sunday of the month. They can all be joined on Zoom.

Six folks from Carlby attended the Alpha Course, which ended just before Christmas. We had wonderful times of discussion and encouraging one another as we learned more about the Christian faith. It’s not too late to sign up for the present Alpha Course which started on the 19th of January. Please contact for more information
