This will be a shorter form of worship and regrettably the law does not permit us to sing at this point in time, but we look forward to John leading our worship on the organ. The service will include special prayers to enable us to celebrate being allowed back in our buildings and it is hoped that we will be able to offer a short act of Holy Communion. The new guidelines require us to maintain social distancing so we ask for your co-operation in being seated and directed around the church. It will be especially important to be respectful of each other's distance in entering and exiting the church and to that end it would be helpful if you could manage to arrive a little earlier than you may be used to. We do not anticipate a larger than typical congregation but should that happen it may be necessary to request some not to join the congregation in church if the seating will not allow for sufficient social distance for the numbers present. We should make you aware that although we are resuming public worship the new guidelines mean that things will not be what we have been used to for some time to come and we ask your forbearance with that. You are very welcome to wear a face mask but it is not a requirement. If you are planning to join us on Sunday, please let either the Rector know or Richard Brown, so that we have some idea of the numbers to expect

PLEASE NOTE - for the time being we shall also continue to post a video service on our Facebook page and distribute the text of the Rector's sermon."
