A MESSAGE FROM THE REVEREND NICOLA LENTHALL

 

This Sunday, July 25th, the services are:

8am Holy Communion at Kensworth

9am Holy Communion at Whipsnade

10.30am Family Service at Kensworth

10.30am Holy Communion at Studham

For those coming to worship in the church buildings, you will see that the tapes and barriers have now been removed and the kneelers and pew cushions are back in place.  Face coverings, social distancing and hand sanitising are now matters for your own personal discretion; however, if anyone in church is wearing a face covering, please respect that, and do not sit or stand within two metres of them unless they invite you to do so.  Where possible, depending on the availability of organists, hymns will be sung.

Holy Communion will remain in one kind for the time being.  Please act with Christian care towards the whole worshipping community, and remember that we all have very different feelings at this time.

 

It is hoped that Sunday School or Children’s Church may re-start in the autumn.  Please keep reading this website and the benefice Facebook page for more updates.

 

I attach both our KSW WorshipLink which you can use for Home Church by yourself and also, for those who can access YouTube, the order of service for use with the online provision.
