THE PARISH LINK MAGAZINE

 

Please click on the image for the June online edition of the magazine. Please consider printing it for a neighbour who enjoys reading the Link but does not have access to the internet. Previous editions can be read on this website on the Back Issues page. The good news is that once again the July/August double edition will be printed and delivered to every home in the three villages subject to regulations.

DUNSTABLE FOODBANK

 

We want to make sure that no one in our local community has to go hungry, but we need your help to make this happen. Your gift of financial support, time, business partnership and food can make a real difference. If you can help and would like further information please see our website.

A MESSAGE FROM THE REVEREND NICOLA LENTHALL

 

Next Sunday, June 20th, the services are:

9am Family Service at Whipsnade

10.30am Service of Stillness and Reflection at Kensworth

10.30am Holy Communion at Studham

 

We are continuing with our plan of having one service in each church every Sunday (although sadly still no congregational singing inside the building yet) following the normal pattern pre-pandemic in terms of times, and as much as possible in terms of style of service.  We can’t yet offer Sunday School or Children’s Church in church, but may be able to offer some children’s worship outside as we go through the summer.  Please keep reading this website and the benefice Facebook page for more updates.

 

For those coming to the church buildings please remember:

  • we will be following government guidelines on social distancing and all hygiene measures (two metres distance where possible, one metre plus where not, and hand sanitising at the entrance to the building);
  • please wear a face covering if possible;
  • to fill in the pews from the front (this may mean that you can’t sit in your ‘usual pew’! Please follow directions from a benefice churchwarden);
  •  to leave from the door nearest to you (which may be the priest door in the chancel);
  • conversation after (or before) the service must take place outside the building.
