Church of England Diocese of Hereford Presteigne with Discoed

A Message from our Rector for Sunday 26 July

25 Jul 2020, 4 p.m.

Dear Friends

Just to keep you up to date with what’s happening around the churches in our Benefice…we had a lovely Prayer Book Communion Service in St Andrew’s, Presteigne on Sunday last, with 47 in the congregation. It was so good to see everyone and for us all to be worshipping God together again – though we are very mindful of those who would love to join us, but aren’t able to do so just yet. They are still very much part of our church family and we look forward to welcoming them too in due time.

As you’ll see from the Service Schedule I’ve included with your readings, for the month of August, our plan is to have services in Lingen and Presteigne only. Everyone is most welcome at either church – though seating capacity is very limited at Lingen because of 2 metre distancing.

I’ve also taken the liberty of including a copy of a note about the very poor state of St Andrew’s Church finances from the August Online Parish Magazine.

If you can help us, we’d be very grateful.

We hope to return to a printed Parish Magazine in September – though, of course, plans can change all too easily in these strange days!

I hope this finds you in good spirits and health.

Keep safe and well

Stephen
