St.Gregory's Parish Church, Sudbury, Suffolk
"Your Community - Your Church"
FROM 5TH JULY WE ARE OPEN ON A SUNDAY
For months, as we have struggled to be together in spirit while being physically separated, we have longed to be back in our beloved church building and to celebrate the sacraments together. This coming Sunday we will be able to do that, however we will be proceeding slowly, to ensure we all remain as safe as possible while the threat of infection continues. We are beginning Holy Communion with our 8am service, which this week will be a modern Common Worship service. This is partly because what we are allowed to do is closest to the 8am services we are familiar with, and partly so we can assess our provision before resuming 10am Communion services. This will be reviewed over the next few weeks and we will keep you posted. The 2m rule for social distancing remains in force for places of worship so how many we can accommodate for worship depends on how many we can fit in with social distancing in place. Based on the measurements we did for private prayer, I think there will be about 40 seats available.
After the 8am service there will be an opportunity to join me for quiet prayer for our town and all who live here. This will be from 9-9.30am. It may feel like a safer way to be worshipping in the building on a Sunday morning than a Communion service for some of you, and I hope it will continue for at least a while.
There will For the time being, zoom worship will remain at 10am and this is where the sermon will be delivered. We will also continue with our regular weekly mailing.
We are delighted that we are now open for private prayer on
Wednesdays 11am - 6pm
