Benefice

Christmas 2020
and New Year 2021 Services


I'm afraid there are still
no clear guidelines
as to how this will happen
as we await the governments
response to the
proposed end to 'Lockdown 2'.

However,

I will let you know
as soon as I do.

I will leave
the last word,
for the time being,
to our Bishop
in an extract
from his letter
from this week to the Clergy:-

Realistically,
assume that churches
will be able to open
for Christmas,
but still with restrictions
pretty much like today's.
Assume that mixing
and socialising will
still be restricted
apart from small family
or household groups.
Assume that late night services

probably won't

be allowed.
