The Collect

For Sunday December 5th

Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Amen

RISK ASSESSMENTS

STATEMENT


"Dear Friends,

 

Over the next few weeks, we will begin to re-open the four Churches in our Benefice.

We will start slowly, by opening each Church, in turn, one after the other.

After this 4-week period has passed we are aiming to return to something like our original service pattern.

 

It is important to remember we are still in the midst of a Pandemic. As such, the tightly packed services such as the Stoneclough Thursday night Family service and the St Stephen’s 8:30am service will NOT be opening immediately. We will need to wait for Government guidance to change to make those services possible. For those concerned about register signing, the state guidance is suggesting to schools to discount any marks from the Covid outbreak to the end of this academic year 2020. As such, no registers will be available for signing until the schools return in September.

 

The dates we have so far:

St John’s – 26th July 11 am

Holy Trinity – 2nd August 10 am

St Saviour’s – 9th August 10 am

St Stephen’s – 16th August 10 am

 

Important information

• Those in the critically vulnerable category are strongly advised not to attend.

• The services will be recorded and made available for download each Sunday afternoon.

• Please bring a facemask with you and wear it throughout the service.

• We will begin to take enquiries once again for Baptisms and Weddings from the 1st of September onwards, contact details will follow nearer the time.

• More dates will follow, including those for midweek services.

 

Church will look very different for a while. It will take some time to return to normality. Please do pray for us all as we seek to live, pray, and worship in Jesus Christ's name.

 

With every Blessing,

 

Your Clergy Team"
