 Services again at St Mary’s and St Anne’s

OPEN FOR WORSHIP     18th April to end of June 2021

Following on from successful services at St Mary’s and St Anne’s we now settle into a pattern of worship and prayer that will take us through to the end of June. Sunday Eucharist or Morning Praise services will alternate between St Mary’s and St Anne’s and both churches will be open for individual prayer at regular times. The outdoors around the churches will always be open and guarantees peace, stillness and closeness to God.

Dates and times have been published below and are shown on the noticeboards at each church.

We are delighted to welcome you all back to worship and pray at our two churches. We are still under Covid restrictions of course and in a vacancy, so these arrangements are a step on the way rather than final and complete.

OPEN FOR PRAYER

At each church on the Sundays when there is no service the building will be open for individual prayer, meditation and quiet sitting from 10.00.a.m to 4.00.p.m. Outdoor socialising may also take place within the Covid safety restrictions. Please refer to Government guidelines.

 OUR CHURCHES NEED THEIR PEOPLE AND WE URGE YOU TO INHABIT THEM AGAIN IN WORSHIP, PRAYER AND MEETING.

 If you have any concerns about these arrangements Churchwardens Tim and Graham are happy to help. We can’t yet speak with you in church but will meet safely outside by arrangement. Or you can phone or email us.

AN APPEAL

We need to keep St Anne's sustainable for its members, our community and our future, and with that the Parish Giving Scheme was set up to help the church manage regular donations. Donations can be made to the scheme by Direct Debit which will be passed back to St Anne's Church within ten day of the payment being made, the Gift Aid a few days later. This scheme has worked well for us over several years and has been a financial lifeline during this time of lockdown and church closure. Also you can donate on a regular basis via Standing Order. If you are interested in joining the scheme please ask Pam Hall (covering Treasurer) who can give you our bank details and will be pleased to help you.

There is usually someone there from 10am to 2pm.  items can be left outside but its suggested after 12 as its in the shade at the front then. They are short of tinned meat, Men's toiletries (razors), shower gel and deodorant but please no potatoes or perishable items.
