Pastoral Care Please contact Fr Julian or Fr Adam if you have need of a priest. Regrettably, they are still not allowed to make visits except in extremis.

Off line Services There is a free national phone line aimed particularly at the over 75’s who don’t have access to the internet. Research indicates that some three million people – particularly those in this age group have no, or very irregular, access to the internet. The line will be available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It is a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while church buildings are closed. Callers will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop of Canterbury before being able to choose from a range of options, including Prayer during the Day and Night Prayer updated daily, from Common Worship, and a recording of the Church of England’s weekly national online service.

On Line Services will continue to be streamed daily at 10am (except Monday) and also on Sundays at 6.30pm. Simon, our organist, is very kindly providing accompaniment to the hymn, as well as singing. Thank you, Simon! Please do join in.

Sunday Coffee As is now becoming usual, there will be a Zoom coffee chat on Sunday at 11.00am. Joining details will be sent by email. Once again, apologies to those who are not online.

Sharing Together Thank you those who were able to take part on Thursday. A very different way of meeting, but as good as we can get!

Trinity Sunday Our Feast of Title – our special day – is next Sunday. Please do all you can to ‘come’ to the main service at 10.00am, when the preacher will be the Bishop of Ebbsfleet. Maybe, as a celebration we should have something stronger than coffee at 11.00!

Church Maintenance Now that lockdown restrictions are being eased, we are very grateful to Pat Hitchcock for cutting the church grass and John Godley for repairing the church notice boards (the vandal was ‘convicted’). If anyone would like to spend a little time tidying the grounds, that’d be most helpful. Sadly, no access is permitted still to the church building. It’s important that the church looks ‘alive’ even if not open for public worship. Thank you.
