It was great to meet and sing together last Sunday! Just a reminder of how things are working.
Many things will stay the same for now. We’ll continue to keep the buildings ventilated, and have distance between seats. There will still be no refreshments for the time being and the collection plate will not be passed around (donation box and contactless giving available.) We ask that people continue to register for NHS Track and Trace, sanitise heands, and wear masks when entering and moving around the building. Sunday@7 will continue online until September.
However, please feel free to remove your mask when sat down. We’ve reintroduced congregational singing and plan on having a (slightly altered) communion service on 8th August. For those who are not comfortable taking their mask off/sitting near unmasked people, there will be a part of church where people can wear masks throughout the service. At St. Bartholomew’s this is the area behind the sound desk – please keep masks on it that area.
If you’ve got any question, please get in touch.
9.30am – St. Bartholomew’s and Zoom
Creche will continue through Summer when leaders are available. Sunday School will restart in September. There will be tables set up at the back of church with activity sheets and books for children and families.
Ladies Craft Evening – Wednesday 8th Sept, 7.15pm at St. Bartholomew’s Church
Come and enjoy an evening of craft, fellowship and hear a guest’s testimony. Refreshments and all materials provided – just bring yourself and why not invite a friend?
£10 per ticket. Please see Sheila or Lisa (or reply to this email) to book a ticket.
‘[Jesus said] Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No I tell you, but division.’ Luke 12:51
Following Jesus brings great joy, but it also brings division. As we wholeheartedly follow Jesus, our mindset and priorities change and that can put us at odds with those who don’t trust Jesus. It can sometimes even bring division within families. We were encouraged last Sunday to keep loving and praying for our non-Christian friends and family, in the hope they’ll come to know Jesus too.
