services At all saints

At last we’re able to resume worshipping in church.  On 19th July we held our first service for more than four months.  It was both exhilarating and a bit scary.  The congregation, numbering 35, was well spaced out thanks to our long pews, and some went up to the balcony. It was strange to have no singing and no interaction after the service.  But, slowly we are taking steps back to normality.

August services in church

Sunday, 2nd August Morning Worship at 10.30 am in All Saints

Sunday 14th August, Holy Communion at 10.30 am in All Saints Church

For the next two months we will hold a benefice service in church every other week with the aim of returning to our normal service pattern in October.  Services will be held in Stretton because of the space required. If you are planning to attend church services, please take a look at this guidance.

A Prayer from the Church of England:

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
