*****MESSAGE FROM ALL SAINTS' BECKINGHAM
AS A RESULT OF COMPLETELY UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, IT IS WITH MUCH REGRET THAT THE CRIB SERVICE ARRANGED FOR CHRISTMAS EVE AFTERNOON HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED. WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THIS. STEVE AND TONY*****

RESPONDING TO THE NEW CORONAVIRUS VARIANT

Across the Oswaldbeck Benefice, churches are taking the arrival of the new Coronavirus variant very seriously. Wearing a face covering is still recommended, along with use of hand sanitiser, and the NHS Test & Trace QR code (or completing the register of attendance). All the pews have been opened. Holy Communion is delivered in one kind only but singing is back. Further advice from the Church of England is expected as more becomes known about this new variant so this will be updated periodically.

See the post elsewhere giving details of services, when and where. The church continues to be open for private worship on Thursdays from 10.30am to 3.00pm. If you're going into the church, everyone is urged to be cautious. In addition to the above, please remember that if wishing to light a votive candle in memory of a loved one, bring your own lighter or matches.

START THE DAY
Within our own Diocese, Bishop Paul and Sarah produce a series of monthly morning briefings. You can find them on the Facebook page (All Saints' Parish Church Misterton) along with a lot more news.
