Said Service – Sunday 26th July
We are going to hold a said service of Holy Communion in the building on Sunday the 26th July at 10am. There will be a number of restrictions in place at that service in order to maintain Covid safety including a requirement for hand sanitising and social distancing. Face coverings are recommended but not required. Worshippers will be directed to sit in specific places.
If you are considering attending please do think through the risks with reference to government guidance, your age and health. Please do not attend if you have Covid symptoms or are isolating for the required period after having those or have been asked to self isolate by Track and Trace.
If you are planning to attend please could you let the vicar Mat know by email email@example.com or 07398252715 so that seating can be planned adequately. Do also contact Mat if you have questions or concerns.
In preparing for the service we have completed a risk assessment which is available to view on this webpage or at church.
The next Sunday service in the building is planned for the 30th August. Weekly online services can be found on the services page of this website. The church building is also available for Funerals and Weddings but please note there remains a limit of 30 people for these services. Do contact Mat for more information.

Self isolation, whether because we are ill or are in an ‘at risk group’, could bring extra challenges. There are people in the church community who are willing to shop or fetch items for those in this situation. Do email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring me 07398252715 if you need assistance in this way or just want to talk. If you want to offer help to neighbours you could download and use the card below if that is of help.
If you feel lonely or isolated do contact me. We are also always happy to pray for you and to contact you by phone for a chat.

Do join me in continuing to pray for all those affected by this virus in whatever way, and for all in the health and emergency services and government as they deal with the challenges this crisis presents.
