 St Thomas’ Church  - keeping in touch

Building the Kingdom...................................

 

 

As I have gone out over the last 2 weeks, what a glorious sight it has been – the yellow, purple and white of the crocuses in the parks and green spaces as well as in house gardens. Thank you to Joan for sharing this photo of St Chad’s churchyard at Poulton – the annual treat of the swathe of crocuses.

I was delighted this last week that my indoor cactus flowered and I am not that good with house plants ! How about you?

PUBLIC WORSHIP resuming

As of Sunday 7th March, the 10.30am service will be open for public worship with clear provisos. Following the guidance from Public Health, Bishop Julian and the senior Diocesan team have issued the advice that from this next week “the blanket provision for churches to close for public worship on a Sunday ends.” This then opens the way for Sunday worship to recommence.

St Thomas’ is doing so in a structured manner as follows:

·         From Sunday 7th March the 10.30am will be public worship and will be a Holy Communion service.

·         Numbers will be seriously restricted.

·         The Pastoral Team will be asking via their phone call to each congregation member whether or not that person wishes to attend.

·         It is unlikely that you will be able to attend every week; places will be allocated on a rota basis to allow everyone the opportunity to attend if they want to.

·         Communion will be served to you at your seat as part of the service.

·         You will be asked to exit the church after the service on a row by row basis and under the guidance of the churchwardens.

·         You must leave the church grounds without congregating and holding discussions.
