Beginning to be open for tourists again! Each Wednesday and each Sundayin October 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm.
Meanwhile, our live Sunday morning worship on 11 October is an All Age Harvest Festival at 9.30 a.m. at St Jamesí, Cross Roads. Do you join us! Our first experiment at Covid-safe All Age Worship (at St Michaelís, Haworth three weeks ago) involved a couple of families and went surprisingly well!
Our forward dates now are:
18 Oct Morning Worship at 11.00 am at St Michaelís celebrating the 150th anniversary of the church clock
25 Oct Communion at 9.30 am at St Jamesí
1 Nov All Age Worship at 11.00 am at St Michaelís celebrating All Saintsí Day
8 Nov Remembrance provision to be arranged in line with local consultation now that it is announced that no gatherings are possible at War Memorials
15 Nov Morning Worship at 9.30 at St Jamesí
22 Nov Communion at 11.00 am at St Michaelís
29 Nov All Age Worship at 9.30 am at St Jamesí celebrating the beginning of Advent
We will continue to release a fresh on-line half-hour Sunday Worship video each week in partnership with West Lane Baptist Church.
We will continue to provide Covid-safe Communion each week in each church (3.30 pm on Sundays at St Gabrielís, 10.30 a.m. on Wednesdays at St Jamesí and 12.30 pm on Fridays at St Michaelís).
Anyone is allowed to attend worship (as an individual or in a household-bubble) under regulations in place.
Covid-19 precautions must be and are in place (mask if not exempt, both hand sanitisation and Ďtrack and traceí registration on arrival, physical distancing). We either clean the spaces people have occupied or leave them unused for at least 72 hours or (most often) both.
But people may not interact (mix or socialise) with others who are attending.
About a hundred different people have now attended at least one service in our three churches over the last few weeks on this basis.
But we perfectly understand that many others (including at least fifty adults who otherwise certainly would have been at public worship over the last few weeks) are choosing to continue to stay away from all social gathering points.
