Covid instructions

From the Bishop’s Office: “it seems that the government is some way off making available their guidance for public event gatherings and places of worship. In this period, we continue to encourage parishes/benefices in the Diocese of Oxford to take a cautious approach. We’ll be sure to signpost to new guidance when it arrives. Where possible, it’s probably best to press ‘pause’ on making decisions about future services and events and wait for further advice.”

 SO…

Sunday 7th February 2021

Although in Lockdown we are technically able to meet, all our churches have decided that, for the sake of people’s safety, there will be no in-person worship at this time. We are, however, hosting a Zoom Sunday service each week at 10am.

This week then we have:
10:00 – Zoom, All Age Worship
The collect and readings for this Sunday can be downloaded, if you are not joining us online.

You will need a few things to join in:
Please download the PDF below, print off and cut out before the service. (if you don’t have a printer, please ask and we will get someone to deliver a printed copy to you). It would help (but not essential) to have a small, thin skewer, long cocktail stick, or similar. You will also need to have a writing implement, a Pritt stick or paper glue or, failing that, Sellotape.

We will not be following a printed Order of Service.

The Diocesan service(s) can still be found here.

Our next Zoom Coffee Morning will be Wednesday 17th February, 10:30am.

Blessings,
Simon, Rector
