Remembrance Services 8th November
Sadly we are not allowed to hold any indoor services for Remembrance Sunday, nor a public Act of Remembrance outside church. However:
1) The Rector has recorded a service of Morning Prayer, containing an Act of Remembrance, and this will be put on our parish You Tube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaWXi4BZAxb-kT2E9vv7iwQ), from 9am tomorrow.
2) Both of our church buildings will be open for private prayer tomorrow morning: St John's, 10-12; St Bartholomew's, 10.30-11.30. There is no reason why private prayer attenders may not, when the clock strikes 11, stand up and observe a private 2-minute silence and then sit down again to resume their prayers.
3) Alternatively, you could join in with the national campaign to stand on our doorsteps for the 2 minute silence (please see https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/remembrance-events/remembrance-sunday).
However you choose to mark Remembrance Sunday, we pray that it will enrich you spiritually and mentally, as you remember and pay tribute to all those who have given their health, or indeed their very lives, so that we can live in freedom.
Christmas Tree Festival - will not be taking place this year. We will miss this lovely event and welcoming you all into the church for such a lovely celebration. We hope to return in 2021.
Due to the numbers generally in attendance at our Christmas services, we will need to have a ticket system in place. Times and process for requesting tickets will be announced in due course in line with government guidance.
