  • The Parish Church is opening up

    with

    a Eucharist each Sunday

    We are sorry you are not greeted with our usual front page.  The words are below. 

    We are now celebrating the Parish Eucharist (Communion) on Sunday mornings at 10:00am.

    We want everone to be safe and the interior seating plan and the way the service flows is designed with this in mind.  This means we have to restrict the number of people in the church at any one time.

     

    It is, therefore, essential you book in for a particular service.  To do this please contact:-

    Please contact Clare on either

    Telephone:   07596 997339

    Email: clarisa1968@hotmail.co.uk

    Some of us attend every Sunday but this may not be possible in the near future as we want to give every one who wants to come to be able to do so at some time.  Some of us have a regular Sunday we attend e.g. First Sunday of the month, or every second and fourth week.  We will try to make this as fair and inclusive as possible.

    The other advantage of a booking system is that we will know who to contact if things change at short notice.

    The kitchen area and the vestry will be closed off except for the clergy who will need access to these areas to prepare for and clear up after the service.  

    If you feel you might need  a drink of water during a service please bring your own bottle of water (or whatever).  

    The toilet will be open and please would you follow the instructs about how to sanitise the toilet and room  after use, so it is available for the next person.

    The use of face covering is required!

    Arriving at the Church.

    You’ll have to wait outside at a social distance between each other before been invited into the church through the door we usually use.  Upon entry you’ll have to sanitise your hands using the hands-free sanitiser, give your  name and contact number to the sides person on duty (this is for the purposes of the governments Track and Trace system and the record of a particular service will be destroyed after about three weeks if it’s not needed). It is not compulsory to give your details but it would be preferable if every did so each week. Please then proceed to the pew/seat you are guided to, so that everyone can enter safely and a in a distanced manner.  

    The clergy will bring Communion to you.  Present restrictions means you will receive the Body of Christ but not the chalice (the Blood of Christ).

    There will not be any hymns sung during the service but Susan will be playing the organ/piano/CDs before, after and during the service.

    Once the service has ended please leave through the tower door as directed and in a seemly fashion.  Instructions will be given at the time.

    Please, if you are :-

    • unwell, please stay at home and take care of yourself
    • isolating, are or member of your family/household/bubble is vulnerable please think and pray hard about how you feel about coming to church at this time.  
    • If your gut feeling is ‘it’s not the time for you’, that is fine.

    As always Susan and I are here for you.  If you need to chat, have concerns or would like us to pray for you please contact one of us.

    The Horizons Magazine

     

    Horizons is the magazine normally published monthly by St Mary’s for the whole community of the parish of Weston Turville.  It is not a traditional church magazine in that it combines local articles, news, notices of events, adverts and items to appeal to everyone, whether they are connected to St Mary’s or not.  The aim is to inform, support, and entertain all our readers.

     

    During the COVID-19 situation, Horizons is not being printed or distributed to protect the health of our distributors. We will therefore bring you a selection of articles each month that would normally appear in the print version.  We hope you enjoy them.

     

    Please click the ‘What’s on’ tab and scroll the menu to Horizons Magazine and click.
