CHURCH Newsletter

16th December 2021

Hi everyone,

Following the new Covid guidance that was announced earlier this week we have had to make changes to the services that we had planned for Christmas.

The new plans are as follows:

Sunday Morning All-Age service
This Sunday we will still have our in-person service but there will be 1metre distancing (two seats) between households.  As this will reduce spaces available it will unfortunately be necessary to book online for this service and you can do that here.   The online service will be at 10am as planned.

At the in-person service we were planning to have a nativity and unfortunately this will not be able to go ahead.  However, on Saturday morning between 10am and 12noon we are giving the opportunity for our young people to come to the church and have their photo taken dressed up as a character from the nativity.  We will then use these pictures in our in-person and online worship on Sunday. If you have a child in Wee stars or Super Stars who would like to be part of this then please pop in at some point between 10 and 12 on Saturday.

Christingle Service
Our Christingle in-person services will now not take place and instead we will have an online Christingle, on Youtube and Facebook at 6.15pm, in just the same way as last year.  
All the details about this and how you can get a Christingle kit to make your Christingles at home can be found here.

Watchnight Service
This was always going to be online (Facebook and Youtube) and so is unaffected by recent announcements.

Christmas Day
At the moment we are planning for an in-person only service, taking place at 10am, with the same mitigations that will be in place on Sunday.  It will not be necessary to book online for this service.  

Boxing Day Sunday Service
Our in-person Sunday service will take place  at 10am and at the moment we don’t think there will be a requirement to book online for this. The online service will go live at 6pm on Youtube as previously advertised.

If you are attending an in-person service we would encourage you to take a Lateral Flow Test beforehand.

For the Online Christingle we are looking for volunteers who would be able to deliver Christingle kits to homes in the local area on Thursday 23rd between 3pm and 6pm.   If you are able to help with this then do please let me know.

These are very unsettling and uncertain days but we have a God who is Emmanuel – God with us – and I pray that whatever our situation this Christmas that we would know the peace and love that can be found in Jesus.

If there are any ways in which we can be of help to you then please do get in touch.

Your friend,

Andrew Morrice
