'Public Worship at James will resume on Sunday 26th July 10am, here is a short video explaining how things will work. If you have any questions, please contact Rev Charles.'


 

Church door PPWe are pleased to announce that you are welcome to come in and pray at St James at the following times this week:

Sunday 12th July 11am to 1pm

Wednesday 15th July 11am to 1pm 

Please care for yourself and others by observing hygiene and physical distancing measures that will be in place. We will be limited to 15 people in the building.

If you are in a group susceptible to infection, please consider praying at home. Further times will be announced in due course. If you have any questions, please contact Rev Charles. Enjoy the peace, time to pray, and God’s loving presence.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Tuesday, the resumption of public worship is a potential for July. We are now waiting for the House of Bishops to endorse this and to provide guidance to Churches about opening for services.

Charles and the PCCs of Bulkington and Burton Hastings to assess what is safest and in the best interest of the parishes.

Please check the news sheet, website, Facebook (St James) and Twitter (St Botolph) for further updates.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Following Government and Church guidance, we are working towards having St James’ building open, beginning on Wednesday 24th June and Sunday 28th June 11am-1pm, at which time you will be very welcome to use the building for private prayer.

There will be measures in place for handwashing and social distancing, as well as a limit on the number of people (around 15).

If you are in a group susceptible to infection or have symptoms of the virus, please look after others by staying at home.

Of course, we can pray anywhere, but the PCC felt it was important to offer the parish a chance to pray in St James’ building should they wish to.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Charles.

Last week the PCC (the Church council) met online to discuss opening St James for private prayer, as now allowed by Government and Church of England guidance.

It is our intention to open the Church building soon and a small group of people from Church is working on this now.

Further updates will be posted here soon!

With every blessing, Rev Charles.
