January 2021 Announcement Regarding Public Worship.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Our region having, this afternoon, entered Tier 4 and in light of the increasing infection rates and new variants of COVID 19 we have needed to reassess the safety of continuing public worship in our buildings. Our first concern throughout this pandemic has been to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all those who worship in any of our churches. Given the rapid spread of the virus in this area, and especially the new variant, we are concerned about the impact of this on the safety and health of all concerned. As such, in consultation with the Ministry and Leadership teams and having consulted with the Archdeacons office, I have had to make the difficult decision to suspend our regular worship in church whilst we review our risk assessments and procedures and re-asses the best course of action to maintain the safety and wellbeing of all our worshiping community.

Accordingly we will revert to a weekly zoom service at 10.30 on Sunday mornings for the next few weeks with immediate effect. There will therefore be no services in the buildings this Sunday or throughout January. We will be keeping this situation under review and may take further decisions when the Leadership Team meet in early February, we will of course keep you informed.

As Rev’d Fiona recently commented "we do not know what the future holds but we do know who holds the future!” So, as we approach an uncertain future we continue to pray for all that 2021 will hold for our villages, our group of churches, our county, country and world, as always each of you will remain in my prayers.

With every blessing and many prayers for the New Year,

Rev'd Clive
