Church Services

After many weeks of closure due to the pandemic, and following discussions with both the worshipping community and members of the PCCs, we are carefully opening our beautiful churches one by one.

This wonderful opportunity for worship and private prayer has to be guided by medical advice, together with Government and Church of England guidance, for the health and the safety of us all. I will take this opportunity to say a huge personal thank you to all who have helped clean and prepare the churches in readiness for this. The churches are being set out to provide 2 metre social distancing between households, church bibles and hymn books have been removed and hand gel is provided. Service sheets (which you take home with you afterwards) will be provided for each service. Sadly, we are not allowed to sing in church at this time.

There is also a change in how we may currently share Holy Communion. Although we are unable to open for some of our usual services we are resuming as many of them as possible. While we are not able to hold services at 8:30 am and 6 pm on Sundays, our 10:30 am service will continue to rotate around the Benefice as per the previous rota. Our midweek Eucharist will remain at St Andrew’s on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm.

As we currently have to keep a record of those who have visited our churches for up to twenty-one days after their visit, we are unable to open St Swithun’s and St Mary’s from dawn until dusk. To offer an opportunity for some quiet time, St. Marys and St Swithun's will be open on alternate Tuesday evenings between 6pm and 7pm. This will also be an opportunity for Holy Communion if requested by those who are able to join us. As our two services entitled “A Little Eucharist…” (recorded on a Sunday and Wednesday and available on YouTube) have been so warmly welcomed, particularly by those shielding or unable to get to church because of work commitments, they will continue.

With best wishes and prayers
