Dear all,

Once again things are changing quickly and this is the latest update regarding use of church buildings.

As you know churches are closed for services and also for private prayer. In addition to this funerals can now no longer come into the church buildings. Services instead will be either at the crematorium or at the graveside but even here they will be strictly limited on numbers. (Details to follow when I have them).

All of this, of course, leaves families and friends feeling an even greater sense of loss. At this point there is little any of us can do but to allow our councils and funeral directors do what they need to do to manage the situation.

It is my intension, however, that once the situation has calmed and life returns to something resembling normal to hold a full memorial service in church for anyone who would like to mark the passing of a loved one.

God bless you all - Tracy
