Although it seems very likely that the Government will be lifting many of the current restrictions  and leaving it to individuals to decide what measures they apply to keep safe from infection, the Standing Committees are taking a more staged approach to lifting the restrictions currently in place in our churches.

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Social distancing and the requirement to wear a face covering and sanitise hands etc. will continue to be in place whenever we are in church. Congregation singing is still not permitted, I’m afraid. We must not gather or mix with those outside our bubbles either inside or on church grounds. This is for all our protection.</span>

We will continue to record our service of Eucharist and stream it on line. Our daily morning and evening prayer  continues via the contact group  created by Rev Nick using WhatsApp and email. It enables many of us to keep in touch and support each other. If you would like to join please contact the vicarage on 01772335310.

If you want details about arranging a wedding or Christening please contact Fr Shaun on 01772335310.

We will continue to update this message as more information becomes available. In the meantime take care, keep safe and well. Take time each day to read your Bible for words of comfort and reassurance that God is with us and protecting us.
