Church of England Diocese of Birmingham St. Faith and St. Laurence, Harborne

St Faith & St Laurence Harborne

(Page updated 25th July 2021)

Following the relaxation of lockdown measures on 19th July, the Parochial Church Council has decided to lift some of the measures that have been in place since we re-opened. 

We have reduced social distancing and removed the limit on numbers attending for worship. A designated space will be available for those who still wish to continue to keep a distance, however. 

Although face coverings are no longer mandatory, it is an expression of Christian love that we continue to seek to keep people safe, so we are asking that people continue to wear face coverings on the same basis as before. This will keep one another safe and enable the lessening of social distancing.   Hand sanitising on entry and exit will also remain in place.

We would request people to still use the seat booking line as this will help us meet our Track and Trace obligations.

Other relaxations, such as the resumption of singing, will hopefully follow over the coming weeks. 

We are open for worship each Sunday.  Our Service pattern is now:

8am Communion  2nd and 4th Sundays 

10am Communion  1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays

10am Morning Worship 2nd and 4th Sundays

4pm Zoom evening worship every week 

6.30pm Evensong 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays

Please do also look at the Resources for worship pages for other videos, services and prayers - all ways to hold ourselves and the world before God. 

We are also active with Messy Church for families, coffee mornings, bible study courses and the like, all taking place online. Details in the "Services and events" section of the website. 

Contact the Vicar Rev'd Canon Priscilla White or 07896 935798 if you want to join us on Zoom or WhatsApp, need to talk, want prayer over the phone, or for any other reason.
