SERVICES AT ST.CUTHBERT’S CHURCH.

There is a Communion service 9.30am at St. Cuthbert’s this Sunday.

“The government has indicated that the new law limiting social gatherings to six people will not affect places of worship.” (Diocesan Website)

Please continue to book through Anne, anne.gard@yahoo.co.uk or on 023 9282 8612 for services each week. ‘Bring your own coffee’ to the vicarage garden after the service this week, with the usual social distancing.

Watch out for any changes to our future plans and check with Allie, Anne or Sally before coming to previously advertised meetings.

COMING TO ST CUTHBERT’S IN SEPTEMBER 2020

Coming to St Cuthbert’s in September 2020, during the corona Virus Pandemic.

Firstly and most important – if you have any symptoms of Covid19 please do NOT come to church.

 The Sunday morning service will start at 9.30am. Please do not come too early and congregate outside with others. 

We will then help you to sanitize your hands.

You will then be shown to your chair, put out at the required distance apart.   Obviously, those who live in the same household can sit together.

In the service we are not able to sing, use orders of service, enjoy social interaction after the service, so no coffee can be served.

The toilet will be open.

The service will be put up on a screen and led by Allie.

Please keep socially distanced at all times.

 

GOOD NEWS

Next June we will welcome a new curate to our parish. His name is Rajiv Sidhu. He comes with his wife, Freya, daughter Ranjini and son Rajvir, twins aged 5.

At the moment he is studying in Oxford. He will be ordained as a Deacon on arrival and then as a Priest after a year. He will work with us full time. Hooray!

The family are planning to visit us in October. Would you like to ask any of them a question? then let Allie know and she will find out the answer for you.
