Notices

Vicar’s Thought for the Day – Faith isn’t blind – it’s our sight set on Christ.

Returning to Normal Cautiously – As advised by the national Church, we will be returning gradually to normal over the coming months. This morning, please feel free to join in with the sung parts of the service, but please sing behind masks. From this afternoon’s Hymns and Pimms, and next Sunday, you may sing without masks if you prefer. Also from next Sunday we will have a short procession from/to the choir vestry at the start and end of the service.  Communion will be delivered in both kinds by the celebrant intincting each wafer with a drop of wine before passing it out. Individuals’ fingers will not go near the chalice. Please continue to wear masks during other parts of the service and particularly when meeting other church members before or after the service. We will also maintain the use of alternate pews for the time being.

After 9.30 am Sunday Eucharist – Could everyone please refrain from using the choir vestry to access the hall from the church between 10.45 am and 11.45 am after the Eucharist, as the Junior Choir are rehearsing there.  Thank you.

Hymns and Pimms 25th July at 3.30 pm – Now we can sing in church again, all are welcome to come along and join in with our congregation’s favourite hymns.  Pimms and soft drinks are available afterwards.

Date Change; All Saints’ Parish BBQ, Friday 30th July, 6.30 pm – Sunday 25th July is the last day to buy your tickets (£7 adults, £4 under 18s) from Anne Spencer (601753).  We hope that as many as possible will be able to join what promises to be a fun evening. Please bring your own drinks, cutlery and crockery; we will supply the meat, salads and desserts.

 Coffee and Tea will be served in the Old Church after the Eucharist Services on Sundays and Wednesdays.  Contributions in excess of costs go to our Coffee Money fund which is earmarked to support those suffering from natural disasters, including COVID.
