Partial Re-opening of St. George’s Church - 18th May 2020

With immediate effect, St. George’s Church will now be open for the following:

- All key-holders can now go into church if it is essential to do so. (If more than one key-holder is in church at the same time then social distancing will be observed. Those entering church must hand-sanitise on entry.)

- Revd David will conduct Morning Prayer from St. George's church (or from his study) at 8am – when it is expedient to do so. (This will, regrettably, be behind closed-doors.)

- Worship will continue as recorded services streamed on YouTube until at least the end of June. David and Helen will start recording these services in the sanctuary of St. George's church.

Full re-opening of St. George's Church: At the very earliest this will be early July; but we await further guidelines from the Diocese nearer the time.

In the meantime, as I concluded in my monthly letter for the June edition of the village magazine: one day, we will return to worshipping in our church. If you have missed "church", I would be interested to hear what it is that you have missed. Have a think about these three questions, and let me know what you think:

-  What have we learnt in this period of being away from our church building?

-  What would we like to retain when we return?

-  What should we let go of?

(i.e. What is it that is really important to you about the church building being there?)
