COMING TO ST CUTHBERT’S IN OCTOBER 2020
Coming to St Cuthbert’s in October 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 10am. Please do not come too early and congregate outside with others. You are required to wear a mask face covering.
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.

Housing advice, including referrals to emergency and longer-term housing. Bond deposit scheme. Regular surgeries with local drug and alcohol agencies. Showers, laundry, clothing store. Low cost lunch, tea, and coffee.
USING AMAZON TO HELP ST CUTHBERT'S
As Christmas approaches we expect some of us will be shopping online.
If you use Amazon please can we ask you to consider shopping via Amazon Smile as we will receive a donation of 0.5% on your purchases at no cost to you.
(E.g. If you bought 2 items costing £17.25 together using Amazon Smile and so we will receive 86p – while that’s not much if lots of us are using it the donations will mount up and it took no more effort and no more time).
Amazon UK have set up a website where you can choose a charity and that charity then receives money each time you purchase something.
The website is: Smile.amazon.co.uk.
It is exactly the same as the normal/usual Amazon UK site.
St. Cuthbert’s church is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.
