Coronavirus Update

With the gradual decreasing number of Covid cases, when attending church services we ask you to:

  • Continue to use the hand cleanser at the door.
  • Respect other people’s personal space.
  • Whist mask wearing is not obligatory, if you feel comfortable wearing one, please continue to do so. (We have a good supply of disposable masks should you forget to bring yours.)
  • Continue to sing.
  • Continue to receive Holy Communion in both kinds under Covid safe procedure.

Refreshments after church on Sunday mornings will be served. 

Please keep an eye on our website for the most up to date information.

* British Humanitarian Aid Appeal – Updated

BRITISH HUMANITARIAN AID is hoping to send aid to the refugee sites on the Polish and Moldovan borders with Ukraine.  They are asking for donations so that they can buy food, toiletries, nappies, sanitary products etc.  If you can help with a donation, however small, BHA would be most grateful.  Cheques made out to British Humanitarian Aid and sent to BHA, 11 Devon Road, Canterbury, Kent CT1 1RP or by bank transfer: 

                  Sort Code:                23 05 80

                  Account:                   37221139 (Metro Bank)

                  Name:                        British Humanitarian Aid

*UPDATED: Don’t worry if, when making a bank transfer, your bank tells you that there’s a mismatch between the sort code/account numbers and the account name. BHA tell us that it’s because they bank with Metro Bank, and other banks can’t confirm that the details match.

Living in Love and Faith – Lent course

This will take place in person at Holy Trinity church, Potten End at 10.00am starting on Thursday 3rd March 2022 and continue throughout Lent.  For more details please contact Revd Joe Roberts on 01442 865217 or vicar@holytrinitypottenend.org.uk
