A Message from the Rector

Dear Friends,

In light of the Government guidance, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.

There will be no public worship services taking place at St Olave until further notice.

Prayers will be said by on behalf of everyone, and I will be in church on Sunday mornings. Please email any prayer requests to rector@saintolave.comor 02080913677.

We hope to post reflections and prayers. We also hope to be able to stream some prayers and reflections soon too.  Do use the time for reading, prayer and reflection. Please check the website and Twitter feed #StOlaveHartSt for updates.

Helpful digital resources that are currently available:

Church of England daily prayer

  • #LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation – the Church of England’s Lent campaign for 2020. With weekly themes shaped around the first Genesis account of creation, it explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. This daily audio content is available via the app and daily emails. Sign up for free.
  • The BBC’s Daily Service and Sunday Worship – radio programmes will be using some of the themes from #LiveLent as part of their broadcasts.
  • Prayer for the day – each day the Church of England publishes audio and text of the Prayer for the Day..
  • Live streaming services – users can watch live streams of services from a range of churches and we will be improvingAChurchNearYou.com in the days ahead to make this clearer. 

Yours in Christ
