News for week of September 20

Services in church

It was good to be back in church for the first morning service after lock-down on Sunday 13th September, despite the constraints due to Covid-19 which limited the number of congregation and meant there was no singing. Online services will continue, but in the afternoon. The times the church will be open for private prayer is moved to Wednesdays from 2-4 pm. The church will not be open for private prayer if there is a funeral in church during that week.

Ride and Stride

News News Three members of the church visited churches round Bredon hill on Saturday 12th September as part of the sponsored bike ride to support Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust. Fewer churches were open this year because of the covid-19 constraints but it was close to ideal cycling weather.

Open for personal prayer

News News It was good to go into church on June 28th, albeit without a shared service. The church was open for the first time in three months for private prayer, with appropriate social distancing and hygiene.
