A message from Rev Susan:
I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
Bishop James has written to Clergy and Church Wardens in the
area with the instruction that The
Church continues to be alive and active but our buildings must close within
He says that the time has come for us not only to suspend
public worship, but for us to close our buildings entirely. This means that
no-one should now be entering St Mary’s or All Souls.
I want to assure you that I will continue to pray for
individuals, our communities, and the world and I am confident that you will
join me from the safety of your homes. We intend to continue to broadcast
Sunday services at 10am from the Vicarage using Twitter however the links will
be posted on our website and Facebook so anyone can view them – you do not need
a twitter account.
To quote Bishop James once more “Even though our buildings
will be closed, the Church continues to be alive and active”. It is a testing time but I am confident that
as Christians we will continue in worship and prayer wherever we find ourselves
and that we can continue to share the love of Christ with those around us in
word and deed while still maintaining a safe distance for all.
With every blessing
