LATEST TEAM NEWS AND INFORMATION

Last updated 17 January 21

Although we are back in lockdown places of worship are allowed to remain open and offer public worship services, as well as weddings and funerals.  We have nevertheless reduced the number of Public Worship services in our team during January and February – please see our Services page for the latest details of public worship services within the Team and Zoom on-line services;  visit Services for Children for Early Birds on-line (YouTube) services.  We also offer an on-line bible study course – see further down this page.  Please note these details may change.

OPENING OF CHURCHES FOR PRIVATE PRAYER 
Neston church will be open for individual private prayer on Sundays 11am to 1pm and Wednesdays 2pm to 4pm (except 20 Jan)

Please note that only parts of each church may be accessible, and you will be requested to use hand sanitiser on entry and exit. Social distancing measures apply, and it is now a legal requirement to wear a face covering (visors alone are regrettably not considered a face covering unless worn with a mask) in places of worship and church halls, unless a relevant exemption applies. We regret we are also unable to  provide Bibles, prayer books etc. Whilst you are welcome to meet friends in the churchyard (within current social distancing rules) please do not arrange to meet anyone outside your household bubble inside a church.  

On-Line Bible study
If you want to engage with the Bible afresh during 2021, why not attend a new Zoom Bible study on 1 Corinthians meeting weekly on Wednesdays at 11am, starting on 6 January? If you have not previously attended please email Revd Andrew at rector@corshamandlacockchurches.org.uk for an invitation.

Keeping in touch
A  weekly newsletter, replacing the current WIS, Church News and Lacock Pew News, will be published on a Wednesday and Saturday giving more information.  This will be emailed to those who have signed up to receive  Team News.  You can be added to this distribution by emailing office@corshamandlacockchurches.org.uk.  Copies of these newsletters can be found at: TEAM NEWS.   Latest Issue 3/2021 released on 16 Jan 21

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
