Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Whiston Parish Church. Situated in the heart of the community, St Mary Magdalene is the parish church serving Whiston Village and the surrounding areas.

The church is now open again for public worship services and funerals. For the next few weeks there will be a spoken Eucharist service on a Sunday at 9.45am, with doors open from 9.15am. The services will be led by one of our two Oversight Ministers, either Revd Karen Skidmore or Revd Toby Gibbons.

If you or anyone in your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to church because of the risk that you pose to others; but remain at home and self-isolate.

These services will be very different from how we worshipped before COVID-19 and so we have drawn up a set of guidelines with the aim of keeping everyone as safe as possible during worship. These guidelines can be found in the section below this article; or on the church Facebook page; and they are available as you enter church. The guidelines are updated whenever the Government issues new guidance.

We hope to resume our previous pattern of worship later in the year as the situation improves, but in the meantime we look forward to welcoming you safely at Whiston Parish Church on a Sunday morning.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself.
There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)

Prayer for Ukraine

Prayers will be said at every service for the people of Ukraine and a special prayer from our Archbishops is posted in church. It is set out below and you are encouraged to use it everyday.

God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for pease and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Amen
