Another good turnout for the third said Morning Prayer

These services will continue up to and including the last Wednesday in August (26th). 

Congregation doubles for the second said Morning Prayer

Thirty people attended our second said Morning Prayer which takes place every Wednesday morning at 10:00. More of the congregation brought along their service sheets that can be found by clicking "Sacred Links" (on the left from here), and then clicking "Join the Church or England in a service of Daily Prayer". Everyone followed the social distancing arrangement and there was again very good north/south air flow. To whet your appetite even more here are some pictures of the flowers we enjoyed at the service.

The First Morning Prayer Has Happened

It was lovely to welcome at least 14 people who gathered for this act of worship on Wednesday morning. There was plenty of chatting before and after - at a distance of course! As you can see, the church had been set up to accommodate the current social distancing measures. Also there was a good current of fresh air flowing through.

Nave Social Distancing

It was all greatly enhanced by the lovely flower arrangements set up by Anne Lorimer.

On-line Taizé Service

During these exceptional times Kay is holding an online Taizé service on the first Sunday of each month using the Zoom conferencing program. You won't need any specialist computer skills because she will send out easy-to-follow joining instructions nearer the time.

The service will have to be a slightly simplified version but still have all of the usual elements of prayer, silence, readings and singing. Kay will lead the singing but the rest of us will have to mute our microphones to avoid latency issues. So we won’t be singing in full harmony, but each of us will be singing alone with Kay, we will hear her but she will not be able to hear us.

Please be ready online at 7.30pm on the first Sunday of each month (having read Kay's joining email) to allow time for everyone to greet each other and also familiarize themselves with the Zoom platform and its controls. The service will end at approximately 8:45pm.

If you would like to take part in this lovely service please email Kay  at singing.kay@gmail.com for the Zoom link and instructions on how to take part.
