St.Columba's is Open for Service's

The Church is open for Sunday Eucharist at 10:30am.

Please wear a face covering and observe the 2M social distancing.

The sacrement will be brought to you rather than you coming to the altar.
(Please let us know if you need a gluten free wafer)

Please be guided by the stewards and remember to book in for Sunday services
by calling Revd Kathryn on 01667 451269

Wednesday Eucharists begins at 10am. Services are in the church.
You do not need to book in for Wednesday services.


Any names for the Prayer List should be given to the Steward or to the person leading
intercessions. There is a list in the porch of those leading prayers.

The childrens area of the church is now partly restored and there are crayons, books and some tous for the children.

Dear Friends, Sunday services are up and running at our usual time of 10.30am. Please remember and bring your liturgy book if you have received one!!!.
Social distancing rules apply, wear a mask to come in and out and the stewards will keep you right from there. Please appreciate that the church is not going to look quite like you remember, but we have tried to make it as homely as we can. And, it goes without saying, please listen and be guided by the stewards, they are there to keep everyone safe.

SERVICES – Sunday Eucharist will be a shortened service and initially, it will just be the celebrant participating. Communion will be in one kind only and we will explain when you come how you will receive your communion. Wednesday midweek services will be at 10am and that service will also be in the church for the time being. You will not need to phone Kathryn for the Wednesday service but you will need to sign in when you come.
We are preparing a protocol for home communion so we can take the sacrament to those who feel anxious or unable to come to church at this time. This news sheet and the Sunday online reflections will continue as will the study group.

Please continue to pray for the life of our congregation and our community, particularly those whose lives have been affected by the virus, those whose treatment and operations have been delayed and all the traders and businesses in the town and the surrounding area are, like us, adjusting to a different reality.

Is there anyone interested in stewarding our services please speak to the Rector. Likewise if you would like to resume reading or leading intercessions please speak to Alison.

Childrens Area of the church is now partly restored and there are crayons, books and some toys for the children.

CATH STEVENSON'S AFTERNOON TEA IN AID OF CHURCH FUNDS IS TO BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY 1st SEPTEMBER 2 TO 4 PM.
