What's Online this week

For the first time, we shall this week be offering worship our church buildings which will also be shared online.  Here is a list of what  is going to be shared online during the coming days.
Holy Communion, Sunday, 9am
All being well with our new technology, we shall be sharing the 9am service of Holy Communion from St John's, live on Facebook in the usual way.
Children's Service, Sunday morn.
Our children's service this week will feature one of Jesus' parables - the pearl of great price.  We're going to help ourselves understand the story by getting our favourite toys out!
Evening Prayer, various times
Evening Prayer will continue throughout the week as always - all are very welcome to join us.
Sunday: 3pm
Tuesday-Saturday: 5.30pm
The services can be found as always by clicking on the button below.

Services in churches this week

This Sunday, 26th July, we shall resume holding services in our church buildings.

We shall hold two services of Holy Communion:
9am in St John's, and 10.30am in St Luke's.

Below you can find links to information on our website with plenty of information on how this will work, including a document giving a brief outline of what to expect, and a page with a Question & Answer section.  You are strongly recommended to read these, as they contain important information that will be useful for you to know before you come.
 
Take me to the webpage about worship in church (including Q&As)
Show me our Public Worship Protocol document
Whilst orders of service will not be handed out in our churches, you may like to download a copy below and bring it with you.
 
Show me the Order of Service for this Sunday's worship
Please be particularly aware of the significantly reduced capacity of both church buildings; we can only fit a maximum of 11 households in St John's, and a maximum of 32 households in St Luke's.  Once we have reached our limit, we cannot admit anyone else.

Finally, St John's church will be open for private prayer on Wednesday 29th July, 10am - 12noon.  All are welcome.

Face masks in church buildings

You will have seen that the wearing of a face covering is now mandatory on public transport, in shops, and in supermarkets. People are also encouraged to wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces where there are people they do not normally meet, such as a place of worship.

The Church of England's recovery group has issued the following advice on face coverings:

"We strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing."

So whilst it will not be compulsory for those of you attending our services this weekend to wear a mask, we very much encourage you to do so wherever possible, principally out of care for others also attending.

Fundraising Quiz Night

On Sat 1st August we are going to hold a Zoom quiz night, to get together, have fun, and raise much needed funds for the parish.

The quiz will start at 7pm.  You can even team up with people online by way of Zoom's wonderful 'break-out rooms,' which allow people to secretly confer with on another - so all can join in.  You will be able to donate online to support the church.

Please email Fr Peter at revpetergodden@outlook.com if you would like to take part, and he will send you the Zoom details on the afternoon of Saturday 1st August.
And finally, please don't hesitate to contact Fr Peter if you need anything at all - be it prayer, practical help, or just a chat,
either on 020 8363 6055 / revpetergodden@outlook.com
