Church to reopen on 5 July

St Thomas à Becket church will reopen on Sunday 5 July for a short service of Morning Prayer at 10.30 a.m.

As a result of the ongoing crisis, churches are required to offer shorter services for a greatly reduced number of people so that hygiene and safety regulations can be strictly observed. Full Holy Communion services are not yet possible.

Until our locum arrives, Morning Prayer will be led by members of the congregation. If there are too many people for the 10.30 service, it may be possible to offer a second service at 11.15 a.m.

Please read this message from the wardens and council for full details of hygiene and safety regulations.

Praying Together Across Europe for Racial Justice

A Message from Bishop Robert and Bishop David, inviting us to a service on Friday 1200cet/1100bst:

“An invitation to come together  for prayer, scripture, silence of 8 minutes and 46 seconds, and blessing, in solidarity with BAME communities around the world. This will be a brief service (15 minutes) at 12 noon CET, the hour our Lord hung upon the cross. Please bring a candle to light. This candle can be brought later to our churches which are now open, or in the process of reopening, as a visible commitment to racial justice.”

The Link to the live stream will be posted at 11:45 here.
