A Message from our Rector, Fr Bryan:-

Dear Friends, 

 The Archbishops have said:

 ‘It is imperative that as the Church of Jesus Christ, called to offer hope and light in the darkness of this world’s ills, we maintain a praying presence for our community, though from today onwards this must happen from our hearts and from our homes.  

 Our Church buildings are closed but the Church must continue to support and encourage our communities making use of telephones and other forms of technology to keep in touch with people  and  ensure  pastoral  care  is  maintained,  and  as  shepherds  of  Christ’s  flock  we are committed to making this happen.’


Here in the North End Team Ministry, the  Ministry Team will  pray  together several times a day,  at  around the same times or intervals  (in principle anyway, the exact times don't matter!)

    8 a m.    Morning Prayer

  12 noon Midday Prayer

     6 p.m     Evening Prayer

                 10 p.m  Compline(Night Prayer)

 We invite you to join us. 

I have put a link to the Church of England's Daily Prayer on the National Website, see below.

I have also added a link to the very popular Celtic Daily Prayer, which the Northumbria Community offer.


Or you may wish to do something quite simple. You could light a candle, have a period of silence or meditation, or engage in some active reflection, with a poem or a flower, a painting or piece of music. 

 God bless

Who are we?

We are a team of three Anglican (Church of England) churches who serve a parish of 20,000 people in the north of the city of Portsmouth (UK).   We are Three Churches, but One Parish, called to 'Meet Others, Worship God and Serve Portsmouth'

We are members of the Anglican Diocese of Portsmouth.


What do we believe?

We think of ourselves as just ordinary people who have discovered that a spiritual life is a better life.  We hope that you'll discover, with us, more about the God who creates us, heals us and sustains us.
