Following the most recent announcement of the Government’s roadmap, as a Benefice we have started to resume limited communal worship. Please check the website and newssheets for updates in respect of when and where services will be held. For the time being our recorded reflection on a Wednesday and pre-recorded service on Sunday will continue as well as Zoom Church @11, to which you are all warmly invited.
Please note that St Peter’s Church, Inkberrow, St Paul’s Church, Cookhill and St James’ Church, Kington will be open daily for private prayer. If you do visit these churches for prayer, please observe all the hygiene requirements in place by wearing a face mask when entering the church, using the sanitiser provided. At present St Nicholas ‘Church, Dormston will remain closed for private prayer but will open for planned communal worship.
Funerals can still take place during the lockdown at any of the Benefice Churches subject to attendance to the Covid secure capacity of the specific church which is determined by each respective church parochial council, however where possible it is recommended that only close friends and family attend and numbers continue to be limited where possible. Linked ceremonial events such as interment of ashes can also continue with a maximum of 30. Please contact Rev’d Bruce Rienstra if you have any further questions.
From the 17th May Weddings can take place subject to attendance by a maximum of 30.
We would however like to draw your attention to the fact that certain groups of people may be at increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19. Government advice is that while shielding is no longer necessary, it is important for clinically extremely vulnerable individuals to continue to keep their number of social interactions low and to reduce the amount of time spent in settings where maintaining social distancing might be difficult. While those at extra risk and the ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ are advised of the risks of attending permitted activities, worship and events, any decision to do so is theirs alone.
We are a friendly and active group of Christians, privileged to worship and serve in a beautiful rural setting. We welcome people from all backgrounds. Whether you are a life-long Christian, a newer Christian, or simply exploring the concept of faith, we would love to get to know you. Please do come and join us at any service or event, or contact us for information or assistance.
From traditional to contemporary, we share in a wide range of worship, in both formal and informal settings.
We advocate unity in diversity and celebrate the different talents and backgrounds of our congregation.
Our desire is for Jesus to be at the centre of all of our worship. We strive to come before God in spirit and in truth, ready to receive His love and His will for our lives.
With activities ranging from children’s groups to a monthly luncheon club, from the friendship and community of cell groups through to individual listening and bereavement support, we aim to serve our local villages and offer something for everyone.
Whether you’d like to get involved as a member of the team, or make use of any of our services, please do get in touch.
