St Lawrence Church Hatfield Covid 19

15 Dec 2020, 1 a.m.

We are sorry that many of our usual Christmas Services can't be held in church as numbers have to be restricted.  However they will be held online instead on our Facebook Page or on YouTube both under the name "Hatfield St Lawrence".

Communion services will also be held on the 16th, 20th and 25th December all at 10.00 but booking is essential please. 

As you enter the church by the large West Door (Brides' Door) which faces the road please wear a face covering.  You will be asked to give your name and a contact number for the "track and trace" system and we also have the NHS app.  We are observing  2 metre social distancing and regular hand sanitising.   Further details of how services and private prayer will be conducted in a "Covid Safe" way can obtained by emailing [email protected]  For Communion we are operating a booking system so please book your place by using the email address above or by ringing 01302 459110. 

Sadly our church is not able yet to  operate to full capacity and all our groups and events are cancelled because of the continuing Covid 19 crisis.  

Funerals -  we are sorry but while we are in Tier 3 funeral services can not currently be held in church.  However ministers from the church are available to conduct a short or full service at the graveside or crematorium so please ask your funeral director to contact us on 01302 459110. We can also offer you a memorial service in church when Covid levels allow.  

Weddings - you can also now book for 2021/2022 wedding or blessings. 

Baptisms -  we have a long waiting list for baptisms and except in an emergency situation these services will now be held in 2021 unless you are happy to have 6 people only! 

We are available for you to talk with you, to provide support and pastoral care, or to pray for you or with you. As a church we are providing newsletters, a monthly magazine and sending lots of emails with  reflections, prayers, bible reading…..To join our email list contact [email protected] 

Our children's work continues to be done virtually so please see our Hatfield St Lawrence Facebook Page for information about how to join in with that.  They are some fun activities for children and families posted there. 

We also hold Morning Prayer and Night prayer online services and you can join with these on our Hatfield St Lawrence Facebook Page. Please see the entries for these services for more details.
