We welcome Fr Jeremy Hellier as our celebrant and preacher this morning. Fr Julian and Jane are presenting an icon to St Mary and All Saints, Potters Bar, where Fr Jeff was once Vicar, in his memory and Barbara’s.

Annual Meetings Because of the COVID lockdown, all annual meetings in parishes were suspended. They now have to be held by 31 October. Notice is formally given that the Annual Meeting of Parishioners will be held on Sunday 11 October at 11.15am for the purpose of electing two Church Wardens, This will be followed immediately by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting where reports of the church's activities will be received, the financial accounts accepted, and any elections to the Parochial Church Council will be held. Reports will be available electronically, along with nomination forms for any vacancies.

Help needed! The hall is re-opening for public use, but is subject to strict regulations regarding COVID. After each use (unless there's a 48 hour break in bookings) the hall will need to be cleaned. This involves primarily a wiping-down of all surfaces (table/counter tops and chairs). We urgently need volunteers to do this. This shouldn't take more than half an hour each time, so perhaps there could be a volunteer for each day. PLEASE let Liz Hathway or Fr Julian know if you can help. This is really most important; otherwise we will have to consider hiring a cleaner, which we can't afford.

COVID Precautions Please don't forget to wear masks when attending worship, and take proper precautions regarding sanitising your hands and keeping social distances, especially when receiving Holy Communion.

Lend with Care There have been no further repayments from our entrepreneurs as they take a payment break in face of the Coronavirus which may have devastated their lives and businesses. Please pray for them.

September’s Issue No hard copies of the parish magazine are printed because of COVID, but the magazine is still available online (church website) as well as via email. Copy for October’s magazine to George Coles by Wednesday 17 September, please.

‘On duty’ Next Sunday:

Intercessor: Michael Hemsley

Readers: Liz Hathway and Jenni Llewellyn
