Notices for week beginning Sunday 23rd August 2020

We are working hard to resume services in the church buildings and hope by October we can have a regular pattern.

Having a regular rhythm of services will be helpful for all of us as it will give us some stability and constancy in the unpredictable season ahead of us.

St Mary’s are meeting outside again on the 30th August at 10.30am.  We plan to meet inside during September on Sunday 13th and Sunday 27th at 10.30am.

We are not able to socialise or have refreshments inside our buildings but people are welcome to bring their own refreshments for outside afterwards keeping a safe 2m distance.

Below is this weeks reflection which Ella has provided for us.

The Home Acts of Worship sheet for Ordinary Time are below for those who aren’t able to join us on the Sundays we meet and for weeks such as this when we aren’t meeting.  It can also be used for those who wish to use it at other times in the week.

Also below is a link to the Communion service sheet you will need for the service next Sunday 30th August.

A message from Revd Claire Dawson

Dear Friends at St Mary’s,

This weeks newsletter and reflection has been produced for us by Karen and is in the link below.

As church communities we are beginning to gather again for worship as the start of our next phase.  St Mary’s Church will be meeting this Sunday (19th) at 12pm for a short act of worship and a socially distanced picnic.  We are meeting outside in the grounds, this is safer and also we are not then restricted by numbers.

I am looking forward to seeing those who are able to come on Sunday for our first real gathering since lockdown!  It will be really good to be able to see people in person.  Because we are meeting outside there is no restrictions on numbers so long as we keep to 2m distance – you are all welcome!  What we need to do is keep a record of everyone who has attended – this is for track and trace and will only be kept for 21 days.

Below are links to some information about keeping yourself and each other safe and also readings and prayers you may find useful to bring to the service.

Hope to see as many as are able to come on Sunday.

Love and best wishes

Claire
