Peter's Notices - 15th November 2020

Notices for Sunday 15 November –second before Advent

This Week’s Online Holy Communion Service

Recorded in St Swithin’s, with Ian Webb and Peter Bold together again!

We are using our new cameras for the first time – we hope you all love the video, and apologies that the sound isn’t good in places – we can easily put it right net time.

We are also using a new youtube channel to show all our videos. Please try watching the video here when it “premiers” at 10am:

We will be putting videos from all our churches on here. If you click the subscribe button it will help us –we can get more memorable name the above if we get 100 subscribers. It doesn’t cost you anything, and you will get notifications of new videos. It is all a bit new to me!

Just in case it doesn’t work for some (not that I’m a pessimist…) the video is also available on my old vimeo channel, and you can watch it here if you want to watch before 10am:

You can also watch it on Dronfield Parish Church Facebook, where it will “premier” at 10am. Face book allows comments so we could have a bit of “chit chat” as well as watching the service:

Heavenly Lord, you long for the world’s salvation:

GOOD NEWS – Approval for accessible Toilet and Re-ordering at the rear of Church!

We are delighted to say that the Diocese and English Heritage have recommended for approval our plans for an accessible toilet, kitchen facilities, storage and re-furbishment of the choir vestry and current toilet extension. The next stage is publishing details on the noticeboard by the Lychgate in case any member of the public wishes to object, and local authority planning permission, because the refurbishment of the extension will change the appearance of the link corridor. While we are doing that we will go out to tender to know how much it will cost, and then we can start applying for grants and fund-raising.
