Dear Church Family,

I am pleased to tell you that The Benefice has started to re-open its church buildings.

We shall be holding Holy Communion in rotation in our churches around The Benefice once a month.  St Mary of Charity will be the second Sunday of the month therefore this coming Sunday, 12 July will be our first Eucharistic service, followed by the other Sundays of the month when we shall have All Age Worship and Morning Prayer.  All these services will commence at 10 am.

Church will also be open for private prayer weekly, commencing Wednesday, 15 July between 11 am and 2 pm - a volunteer will be available during that time.  We will ask you to leave your name and contact details so that in the event of a visitor on the same day testing positive for Covid-19, we will be able to trace anyone else who has been in the building. Your details will be kept for 21 days and will not be shared or passed on to any third parties.

We shall need to implement a booking system for our main services, so could I ask you in the first instance to let me know if you will be joining us on Sunday, 12 July, also if you are a single person joining or how many there will be in your "bubble."

There will be social distancing children’s work available, do join us. Following this first week I shall be in touch hopefully with an online system for future bookings. We are very privileged to have the facility for an overspill TV screen.

Please email [email protected] to book your place.

Looking forward to seeing you all,

Every Blessing, Miranda Ford (Churchwarden)
