Once again, it is with a heavy heart, that we inform you that along with the St Francis Church building, St Wilfrid’s Church building will also be closed with immediate effect for all use except funerals (and weddings) for the duration of this 2<sup>nd</sup> full national lockdown or until it is deemed safe to reopen. The Parochial Church Council and Ecumenical Church Council agreed unanimously that this was the responsible course of action given the current extremely grave situation in which we find ourselves nationally and locally. This decision will be reviewed on a regular basis and we will keep you informed of any changes.
If you know of someone who does not have access to the internet (eg may be someone you have been supporting as a volunteer with our Support Team), please would you let them know of this change. Thank you.
An important reminder that there continue to be various ways you can access worship and fellowship whilst we are not able to meet in person:
-Nationally, the Church of England offers a range of options. Simply go the CofE website.
-Our 10.30am Sunday services continue at braytonparishselby on YouTube
-Our weekly Morning Prayer with Coffee and Catch Up by Zoom continues on Wednesdays at 9.30am
-‘Refresh’ for younger women continues fortnightly on Wednesday evenings by Zoom
-Beer & Banter for younger men continues online as “Lockdown Arms” by Zoom fortnightly on Monday evenings
-We continue with [email protected] provision by Zoom for those with young families every couple of months
-Friday Fun Club for parents/carers and pre-schoolers continues by Zoom weekly on a Friday at 1.30pm
-Our ministry to our teenagers continues on Zoom with the Zone, A2O and Thrive
-Pete in Touch continues to be recorded on YouTube for schools and families at home
If you would like more information about any of these, please contact me, Pete Watson, at [email protected]
Thank you for your understanding, and I’m sure you’ll join with us in prayer for our nation and local community at this time.
Rev Pete Watson & Rev Christine Gillespie
