Welcome to Crook Peak Parish
The Reverend Judith Jeffery is our Rector.
We are a united Parish, made up of the churches of Badgworth, Biddisham, Christon, Compton Bishop, Loxton and Weare, and serve these villages together with Brinscombe, Cross, Rackley, Tarnock & Webbington.
For details of how we are coping with the current 'social distancing' advice see CONTACT.
From 29th March 2020, our Churches are all closed for public worship and private prayer, due to the Coronavirus crisis.
For alternative online and remote Services, please click here 'Remote Services' or on the menu.
"Our mission is to share the good news of Jesus"
Rev. Judith has written as follows:
My Dear Friends
During this crisis I am sure you are feeling anxious and insecure quite understandably. I have never known anything like it and I suspect you have not either. It is war against this virus and I know from history that when faced with something like this it brings out much of what is good about human nature in care and courage and this is the case I feel in our Villages. We must pull together as a community and support one another. We may not perhaps be able to visit but a phone call I am sure would be welcome to check how we are and just have a chat while many of us are isolated for weeks. If you are younger and well perhaps you can pick up prescriptions for neighbours or collect some shopping and leave it on the doorstep of your neighbour. I am isolated for 12 weeks with my chest condition and asthma. We are a nation that has proved that we can be formidable when we join together.
Any funerals will be just immediate family only and all the Weddings and Christenings in the Parish have been postponed. Prayers and reflections will be here on our website and on our App which you can download now. Click the link on the left of this page or here 'New App for Crook Peak Parish'.
All other social events are cancelled/postponed and Crook Peak Parish.
Community help groups will be listed in this but in the meantime if you need some help or support or can give support please contact:
Lorraine Lovell: for Badgworth who is co-ordinating firstname.lastname@example.org
Helen Avison: for Loxton who is co-ordinating email@example.com
Other information for the other villages is being collected and are in Contact. Some of our villages have a word of mouth system which seems to work well! Please use this too.
Remember rather than worry….pray. Far more can be achieved through our Lord Jesus Christ with prayer.
Let us pray:
Loving God, We pray for all those who are suffering because of the coronavirus, may they know your healing power. When we are afraid for ourselves and our loved ones, give us your strength and courage. When we feel alone and isolated, reassure us with a sense of your presence. Give wisdom to those in authority and may our community work together for the good of all. We give thanks for those who care for others and ask you bless them in all they do.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, healer and physician. Amen
Yours in Christian love
Reverend Judith Jeffery
