"Your Community - Your Church"

 

May God bless you and may you know the peace and love of the Christ in 2021

NATIONAL LOCKDOWN AND OUR CHURCH SERVICES

In light on last night's announcement from the Prime Minister, and following assessment of the accelerating COVID rates locally, the Ministry team has decided that we will cease public worship at St Gregory's for a minimum of two weeks. At this point, we will reassess the local situation, and in conversation with the diocese, make a decision as to how we should proceed. We will, however, keep the church building open for individual prayer. This will begin from tomorrow, daily between 9am and 3pm. We will also continue to write weekly to those online and offline, and continue our phone calling to ensure that none are isolated and alone. In place of our church services, worship on Zoom will resume on Sundays at 10am, and in place of the normal Wednesday 11am Eucharist, we will have a weekly Zoom coffee hour with prayers. That will start on Wednesday 13th.

This was not an easy decision, but we believe it is the right one. We are aware that the government have not banned public worship, and for that we are grateful. But of course, just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. The safety of all of you, as well as your families, and the wider parish, is of paramount importance. Keeping each other safe is how we love our neighbour right now.

So, in summary:
Public worship will cease for a minimum of two weeks, at which point there will be a review
Zoom worship will resume on Sunday at 10am
The church building will be open daily between 9am-3pm (normal COVID precautions apply)
The Wednesday 11am will be replaced by a zoom  coffee hour with prayers, beginning 13th January
If you feel alone or isolated and need someone to talk to, please be in touch, you are loved

We are a COVID Secure Venue

In line with government and Church of England guidance, a two-metre social distancing measure is in place throughout the building, and visitors and worshippers are required to wear face coverings. We also operate an NHS Track and Trace register which can be completed either using the NHS COVID19 app, or a paper form. Hand sanitiser is available throughout the building.

We are committed to ensuring that St Gregory's is as safe place to visit and worship in. Part of our calling as a church is to love our neighbour, so we hope you will find all these safeguards as an expression of this, and that you feel welcome and safe.
