Churches open for individual prayer

We are pleased to let you know that our church buildings are now open for individual prayer. The details of when each church will be open are on the poster. Hand sanitiser will be available and people are asked to maintain social distancing. We look forward to welcoming you into our buildings to rest, to be still, to pray.

Public worship resumes on Saturday 18th July

Public worship resumes on Saturday 18th July

We are very pleased to announce that public worship in the benefice will resume with a Eucharist each Saturday at 11.00am at St Oswald’s commencing this Saturday 18th July - PLEASE NOTE THE DAY AND TIME.
• A maximum of 45 people can attend the service. We have decided not to use a booking system, so if more than 45 people come, those not able to stay will be given priority the following week.
• You will be asked to give your name and contact phone number to assist with NHS Track & Trace requests.
• On entry and exit you will be asked to use the hand sanitiser.
• Two-metre social distancing will be maintained.
• There will be an organist, but no choir or congregational singing.
• Communion will be administered in one kind (bread) only.
• Refreshments will not be served after the service.
• The toilet will be available during the service.
• The service sheet will be downloadable from our website. Whilst there will be orders of service available that need to be taken away afterwards, we would invite you to download it on to your mobile device to bring to the service.

Please note the following Government advice.
• Anyone who is feeling unwell, or showing any COVID symptoms, or who has been in recent contact with someone who has COVID 19, must not enter the building, and if anyone who has visited develops symptoms please tell us immediately.
• People who are shielding should stay at home as much as possible and follow the instructions given by the government and the NHS. People who are in vulnerable groups are asked to think very carefully about staying safe.
It is important that we bring these matters to your attention so that you can make the best decision for yourself and others.

As we look to the future both the offline and online communities that link to our benefice are going to be really important for us. During July and August we will continue with the pattern of a public Eucharist each Saturday at 11.00am and a livestream Eucharist each Sunday at 10.30am. Please do feed back to us your comments, questions and encouragements! This challenging time is also a moment of opportunity and like the early Christians we need to be open to the new ways of the Spirit.
