St Mary’s Redlynch – News

We’re coming back to worshipping together! Services will be in line with our risk assessments and church guidelines. In accordance with the Government guidelines those who are extremely clinical vulnerable can reduce the risk of catching the virus by maintaining strict social distancing and keep their overall social contacts at low levels.

Due to the lifting of restrictions there is no longer a need to book your seat to attend services. Congregational singing is back! However to protect others we are asking for the moment that you continue to wear a face mask and be aware of each other’s need for space.

Worship and prayer will continue at home and we will keep connected through the church Facebook page Together@10.

These have been unprecedented times for the Church of England as our church doors were closed but in the words of the Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, who leads the Church of England’s Recovery Group:

“Churches and cathedrals have risen to the recent challenges, finding new ways of meeting for worship, of serving our neighbours, and of reaching new people with the love of God. The challenge before us now is to take the next steps carefully and safely, without forgetting all that we’ve discovered about God and ourselves on the way.”

We are taking the next steps of a journey, so let us walk trusting his Spirit as he leads us to experience the new life of his church.

Please do take care and keep safe.

With love and prayers
