We have resumed congregational worship for our three parishes and will gradually introduce more services in each of the churches over the coming weeks as conditions allow.
Restrictions of which you will be familiar from before Christmas remain:
- Social distancing from those not in your household or care bubble, must be maintained.
- Face masks must be worn at all times in church.
- Please use the hand cleanser at the door.
- We will not be able to join in with the singing of the hymns.
- Holy Communion will be distributed in a safe manner in one kind only.
- After the service you must disperse and not stay in church to have a catch up.
APCMs. Our church APCMs will now take place via Zoom and not in our respective churches. The dates have changed.

Tuesday morning’s Coffee and Cake sessions are now online. We are getting together virtually by Zoom on Tuesdays from 10:30am to 11:15am. Contact Hilary Catchpole at email@example.com, preferably a day or so beforehand, to ask for joining details for this week’s Café Zoom. You’ll need to make your own coffee…and bring your own cake!
Midweek Discussion Group on Zoom
The Midweek Discussion Group meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evenings are restarting on Wednesday 14 April.
The sessions start with a general welcome chat to hear how everyone is getting on, then some discussion often centred around a Bible passage, with a short time of prayer at the end. Everyone will be considered to be fully present if they have signed in, but there is no need to say or share anything. You can spend the whole time ‘mute’ if you wish!
There are the usual protocols about confidentiality, as anything shared must be respected as being confidential to the group. All are welcome, but if inviting others please contact Anthony first.
The next ‘meetings’ are as follows:
- 14 April Jesus the Jew: Reflections on how learning about the Jewish world of Jesus can enrich our own faith
- 21 April Evening Prayer
- 28 April Malachi: Introduction to Old Testament Prophecy
- 5 May Evening Prayer
- 12 May [something on Ascension?]
- 19 May Evening Prayer
- 26 May [something on Pentecost?]
- 2 June Evening Prayer
Sign-in is at 19.55 hrs and the sessions end at 9.30pm sharp. The Zoom invitation is sent a few days beforehand, usually with some background material.
Please contact Anthony Archer on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07721 504125 with any questions
