Changes to worship from 8th August
In response to the Government lifting of Covid restrictions on 19th July 2021, the PCC has agreed to adopt a staged approach to making changes to the arrangements for our services. From 8th August we will reduce our 2 metre social distance restrictions to 1 metre, and the chairs will be rearranged to enable this change to happen. This will enable us to increase the number of people who can attend the service. However, we will retain the use of masks for the time being.
We will also restart having coffee after church from 8th August. This will be organised in a way that enables us to maintain social distancing rather than lining up at the hatch. Dorothy Dexter is organising a rota of volunteers - please get in touch with her if you are able to help.

Advertising for a new vicar
The PCC has agreed a process which will give us the time to stop and reflect as a church before we advertise for a new vicar. This will include refreshing our church plan and church profile. The PCC agreed that a core group, led by Jane Harwood, will co-ordinate this work over the summer. Many of you have already contributed by completing the church survey - 85 people responded and there is a wealth of useful information from both the congregation and the wider community. The core group will be meeting in June to review the results of the church survey and look back over what we have achieved since the last church plan was written, and will use this information to develop a refreshed church plan. We are hoping to hold a church event in late June/early July (depending on the lifting of restrictions) to involve the whole congregation in reviewing this together. For more information, please contact Jane
The PCC reviewed a new structure that brings together teams that are working on specific areas of our church life, and which provides the opportunity for members of the congregation and the wider community to get involved. The groups are:
- Ministry and pastoral team
- Families and children team
- Community team
- Digital, communications and marketing team
- Warden team (Churchwardens and Deputy Churchwardens)
If you would like to get involved in any of these teams, please get in touch with Prem.
Please remember us in your prayers
Best wishes Jane
