Please remember

  • The pews are for people who do not feel the need to socially distance. 

  • The area at the back is for those who still need to socially distance

  • We are still required to wear masks in church unless medically exempt.

  • Our Wednesday services will remain as they are, ie socially distanced.

We are live streaming our 11am Sunday service. 

SERVICES THIS WEEK 

 

Sunday service.

We no longer need to book in advance for our Sunday services, so to avoid confusion we are no longer putting up a doodle poll for Sundays - just come along as you wish. You will need to give your name at the door, but if you are on the roll, this is the only detail you need to give. There is space in the church for those who still wish to socially distance, so, hopefully, everyone is able to come along as they are able.

Doodle poll for 11am service on Wednesday 27th October

(Please remember that doodle poll is voluntary. It simply saves you and us time at the door for taking down names.)

 

Would those who wish to book themselves in for live services but do not have internet access please contact Liz: lizlow2@yahoo.co.uk or tel (07769 684310).

Poem of the week: by Joshua Dyer (aged 14)

 

One Thousand Men are Walking

 

One thousand men are walking

Walking side by side

Singing songs from home

The spirit as their guide

they walk toward the light milord

they walk towards the sun

they smoke and laugh and smile together

no foes to outrun

these men live on forever

in the hearts of those they saved

a nation truly grateful

for the path of peace they paved

they march as friends and comrades

but they do not march for war

step closer to salvation

a tranquil steady corps

the meadows lit with golden beams

a beacon for the brave

the emerald grass untrampled

a reward for what they gave

they dream of those they left behind

and know they dream of them

forever in those poppy fields

there walks one thousand men.

 

(Thanks to Jane Barley for this.)
