Church Building Opening
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on 23rd June 2020, the Parish of Kidderminster Ismere will begin to open its church buildings for Sunday Worship. Our priority is that we can keep people who are attending our buildings safe. A decision was made at the Parochial Church Council on Wednesday 1st July that we should begin by opening St Peter Cookley for a service of Holy Communion at 9.30am on Sunday 5th July. The risk assessment for this building means we can allow only 24 people into the building for the service, regrettably any more than 24 will not be allowed access. It will be a ‘said’ service with no hymns or music. The PCC are also concerned that anyone in a vulnerable category thinks carefully before attending. The service will be live streamed on St Peter Cookley Facebook page.
It is good news that Lock Down is easing but we still need to look after one another and we are determined to do just that by keeping each other safe. Our prayers are with all in our physical and virtual communities. Please read the information provided along with this announcement.
