Sunday Worship update...

In the light of yesterday’s government announcement of a 3rd national lock-down we have taken the decision to move our Sunday public worship wholly on-line for the duration of the lock-down.

We feel this is the right response to the government’s instruction to stay at home apart from essential activities that cannot happen without leaving home.

We fully appreciate how important meeting together is to the church family, and we know that many will deeply miss the opportunity to gather in our buildings for worship. However, at the moment, we do not feel it is responsible for us to invite our church community to leave home for an act of worship when we are all being asked to stay at home except for necessary and essential activities.

This does not mean we are suspending worship. The worshipping life of our church communities will continue. We will meet online for morning prayer on Tuesday and Thursday and for family worship on Sunday. In addition we will continue to make recordings of our services available to those who cannot share in our on-line worship.

The next couple of months are clearly going to be very difficult for many people in our communities. So, we'd ask our church family to continue to do what it has done so well over the past 9 months; to reach out, look after and love each other in whatever ways we are able. Please do contact us if you need any support at this time.

As always, we’d love to hear your views as we seek to wisely navigate difficult ongoing decisions.

Steve, Margaret, Claire, Judith and Pete.
