Street Coordinators for Girton

A small team is working with the parish council to set up street coordinators for Girton - We need volunteers that are happy to look after their street and keep their eye on the residents! If you are happy to do that could you please fill in the form here.

You can also call 01223 526013 or 01223 277448

If you are already doing this in some capacity please still complete the form so that we know which areas are covered. Please let others in the village know about this.

We also have a village facebook page set up which you can find here.
 

 

Church Yard Working Individuals

Normally, Wendy Hunter leads a monthly churchyard work party to keep everything looking good. Under the current regulations, this has been suspended. However, if you would still like to do something, please contact Wendy on 01223 503958. She will give you a small task to do and arrange with you the day and time so you will be the only worker there. We will do our best to keep everyone safe.

 

Church Closure

Following on from National guidelines, sadly the church building has to remain closed until further notice. This means that there will be no services or meetings of any description within the church. In order to stay in touch please keep referring to this website where you will find aids to prayer and spiritual thought.

FoodBank

The FoodBank desperately needs stock at this time of great need. Many families are suffering right now. While the church is closed please leave donations at the front entrance of Glebe School. Thank you.

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.
