The pandemic has been a challenging time for us all: physically, mentally and emotionally. It has been heartening to see the positive attitude with which people have faced challenges and we look forward with hope for the future.

Below are details of the precautions we take at church which we hope will ensure the confidence and safety of all who come to worship.

Covid Precautions
  • Everyone to sanitise their hands before and after each service.

  • Although face masks are no longer compulsory, you are welcome to continue to wear them during the services.

  • Communion to be received in one kind only.

  • The Church will continue to be ventilated. Doors will be left open to facilitate this.

  • Services will continue to be live-streamed via Zoom, for the time being at least.

  •  

Refreshments are available in the Parish Centre after the Sunday and Thursday morning services. Doors and windows will be open to ensure adequate ventilation.

 

 

We hope that these procedures ensure that everyone feels safe and secure whilst worshipping in church. We will continue to keep our procedures under constant review and adjust them as necessary in the light of feedback and changing circumstances. The pandemic has made us all realise how we should treasure many of the experiences that we used to take for granted and we are looking forward to developing fresh ways of coming together as a worshipping community in the coming months.

Join us on Zoom

We hope that these changes will enable as many people as possible to feel comfortable in attending worship. However, if you are shielding or have any reservations at all please do not feel under any compunction to attend. You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers, whether you join the service on Zoom or prefer to watch services broadcast elsewhere.

If you prefer to join in our services via Zoom and be put on our mailing list please let us know.

Water Aid

Once again, the Alms Group asks that people support WaterAid during Lent by filling jam jars with loose change (other methods of donating are available).  Jars will be available at back of church and should be returned as soon after Easter as possible, so our treasurer can resume his favourite April pastime – counting piles of coins. 

 

We’ve missed the last 2 years, but the need for fresh clean running water is greater than ever in underdeveloped countries.  As COVID spread, we were all told to wash our hands frequently.  How can you wash your hands if you have no running water?

 

Across the world, women are forced to walk long distances to collect dirty water.  

Girls are dropping out of school because there are no private toilets. 

Young children are not surviving to see their fifth birthday because of preventable diseases.

 

WaterAid has teams in 37 countries across the world, working with partners to transform millions of lives every year. They improve access to safe water, toilets and hygiene. Since 1981, they have reached 23 million people.

Heating in Church

The events in Ukraine have led to the PCC reviewing the church’s arrangements for supplying gas to power the boiler. This means that there will be minimal heating in church from Sunday, 27th March. Please read a letter from the Vicar and Vice Chair of the PCC giving further information, and if you have any queries do not hesitate to discuss it with any member of the PCC.
