Revised arrangements for services and opening times The PCC met on Thursday 22nd July and considered the future arrangements for church services and opening times following the recent changes in Covid restrictions. It was decided to resume our normal pattern of services from the beginning of August, with the exception that the 9.45 a.m. service on 1st August will be a Lammas Day open air service held outside the St. Mary's Centre (or inside if wet!). Thus the pattern will be: 1st Sunday of each month 8.30 BCP Holy Communion 9.45 All Age Service; 2nd Sunday 9.45 a.m. Holy Communion 3rd Sunday 8.30 a.m. BCP Holy Communion 9.45 a.m. Morning Prayer 4th Sunday 9.45 a.m. Holy Communion 5th Sunday (where applicable) 9.45 a.m. Family Communion. The present arrangements for administering Communion individually in one kind will continue until further notice. Whether to wear masks during services will be a matter for individual discretion. Live singing will recommence from August, with either CD or organ accompaniment depending on availability. Refreshments will be served after the 9.45 a.m. service in the St. Mary's Centre. We shall continue with the mid-week service of Evening Prayer/Compline held via Zoom on Wednesdays at 7.30 p.m. If you are not included in this and would like to be, please contact Guy Morton. The church will once again be open every day for visitors and for private prayer; visitors will be asked to use hand sanitizer and to leave contact details as at present. We look forward to welcoming both regular and new members to our worship and fellowship. Please contact: Geoff Bouche r on 461846 , Mike Batchelor on 300390 or Guy Morton on 494641 .
