Peter's Notices - 23rd August 2020

Dear All,

Video Service

See Online Services for links to our Video Services

Holy Communion in Church –Sunday 23 August 10am

With a small group from our choir! – though sadly the congregation is still not allowed to sing.

We ask everyone else to wear a mask unless exempted for medical reasons etc. We have some spare masks available for anyone who needs one.

Whoever is leading the service does not have to wear a mask or visor, apart from when they are giving out the bread, and those who are reading can take their masks off to read.

We will keep doing the online services, as it is still not recommended for people in the shielding category to come, and we know others will be cautious. Any thoughts etc., please let me know.

All our Video Services and Daily Prayer can be found at:

God of glory, the end of our searching,

through our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.
