We look forward to welcome you
GOOD NEWS We are now drawing near to the end of our building project for reordering and hoping to be open before Christmas!
The first date we are looking at is DECEMBER 5. If you are free on that date, at any time between 10 and 4, please come to help tidy up the grounds and grass around the building. Any help appreciated!
The second date is DECEMBER 12, when we hope to hold an Open Day for all who wish to see what has happened to the inside of our building. There will also be seasonal products for sale, either inside or outside the Church depending on COVID arrangements at the time.
The first SERVICE back in the Church will be Sunday December 20, which will be a Eucharist led by Rev Canon Chancellor Pam Powell. This should be a very exciting moment – do join us ( with social distancing!)
We are also looking at holding several carol services in the week before Christmas. These will be very different, since we won’t be able to sing , but we’ll still be able to decorate the Church, have music and listen to the traditional carols and music. Miraculously, for the first time in many years, we’ll all be WARM !!
Much of this is still ‘in the air’ dependent on the government regulations in force, but keep your eyes on this website and we’ll keep you up to date.
We are still meeting and praying together as a ‘virtual community’ via Zoom every Sunday at 4pm and every Wednesday at 4pm for Bible study and open discussion sessions. Contact us if you’d like to join us
We held a very moving Service of Remembrance on November 8th at MOD Sealand, working with DECA. Many thanks to all those involved, especially Rev Helen Dawson. The service and List of the Fallen are on our Resources tab/Learning and Growing.
