Lockdown News, March 2021
All four churches are now open for individual private prayer. We have reverted to the pattern from before:
All Saints Church – Monday 2-4pm & Friday 10am-12noon
St Lawrence Church – Tuesday 2-4pm & Saturday 10am-12noon
Church of the Holy Rood – Wednesday 10am-12noon & Saturday 2-4pm
St Peter’s Church – Thursday 2-4pm
Then from March 29, as the ‘Rule of Six’ is reintroduced, we will open the church buildings for public worship, ensuring all the social distancing and other public health guidelines are in place. This will be Holy Week and a number of services across all four churches will be in place.
At St Peters, there will be a 2pm Maundy Thursday Communion on April 1 and a 9.15am Easter Day Communion on April 4. We will need to take bookings as before. Please contact Sarah Neish on 07761 933031.
Until March 29, church will continue with online services – please continue to join us. Please also see our Facebook page for daily Morning Prayer at 9am and evening Compline at 8pm. We will have weekly services and midweek encouragements available for you on our YouTube channel and our family [email protected] services are continuing.
We are looking forward into April, when booking will be necessary for the 9.15am Sunday morning services.
Please do not hesitate to contact any of the team if you would like some time to talk.
As soon as we are able to, St Peter’s members will return to regularly worship in our church building and assist with cleaning, arranging flowers, reading lessons and prayers. We are always looking for new volunteers, so do please consider this and contact us if you would like to find out more. We look forward to welcoming you as we continually look at refreshing the way we worship and work together as a community.
Pre Covid – Lunch Club – Second Monday of the Month in the village hall. Numbers for this hover between 25 & 35 . Please be sure to book before you come with Gill Scott or myself when we are up and running again.
