When there is a 5th Sunday in the month there will be a joint service at 10.30am alternating between the churches. The first one of these will be on 31st October at St Nicholas’ at 10.30am.
We have now returned to a full complement of hymns and singing the parts of the services we used to. However, in the Communion services, we will still only receive the wafer as people are not ready to share the chalice just yet, and we will still receive standing, rather than kneeling at the altar rail so that there can be no contamination through everyone touching the altar rail and then touching their mouths as they eat the bread. I think it might be wise to continue in this way for the winter as it may help to reduce the spread of coughs and colds as well as keeping COVID at bay. At present I would ask you to continue to wear masks. There will be refreshments after the services for those who want to stay, and for that, mask can (will have to?) be removed.

Thank you..
