June’s Messenger is ready to read!

Again, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we’re still not able to deliver a printed copy; we hope to be back in print for next month’s edition. In the meantime, please share the link below to the PDF version.

Our parish magazine is available to read, and like last month, anyone can view it here. We hope that next month we might be back to a printed version.

Please download it from here and read it on your phone, tablet or computer.

If you are self-isolating during the COVID-19 situation or in a vulnerable group, your community is here to help.

There aren’t many reasons why our parish magazine would not be printed and distributed, but the current pandemic crisis has meant we have to distribute this month’s edition electronically.

Please download it from here and read it on your phone, tablet or computer.

The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

But they called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.

It follows the announcement by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson of sweeping restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the virus.

It means all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government’s instructions. There will also be no Church weddings or baptisms.

Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement.

In a joint statement the bishops said: “In the light of the Government’s measures, announced by the Prime Minister this evening, we urge everyone to follow the instructions given.”
