It’s wonderful to see more members of the congregation returning. We are very happy to welcome all parishioners back to St John’s and hope that everyone finds themselves and their families safe and well.
Please be advised that safety guidance remains in place:
• Maintain two-metre social distancing, including when seated
• Sanitise hands and follow the one-way system
• Wear a mask throughout the service
• Exit via the door next to the Lady Chapel
• Feel free to socialise in the churchyard, maintaining the necessary distance
Please contact our churchwardens if you would like to add any name to the prayer list. Every week we give thanks for those celebrating birthdays; we also pray for those who are ill, and those who have recently died.
Every third Sunday, the 10am Eucharist will be a family service. As such, there’ll be no crèche or Junior Church, to allow children to be part of the church family. The dates for our family services in spring and summer are 16th May, 20th June, 18thJuly and 15th August.
