An update from St Mary's

Hello from everyone at St Mary's Northchurch and we do hope that everyone is safe and well. A few notices from us regarding how we are adapting to the current situation that we are all facing. For now we will be postponing the Wednesday puzzlers meetings. We will let you know when we are able to re-start this in due course.

We are all facing this together and can help each other as required.

Coronavirus Update

We are all responding to the impact of the coronavirus and the Church of England website has updated its suggested guidelines for churches regarding the use of the chalice at communion and the sharing of the peace. From this Sunday at St Mary's the recommended policy is that we ask folk to receive communion in one kind only. The practice of dipping the bread into the wine is not recommended. We will follow this suggestion until the guidelines change. In regard to the Peace again it is recommended that we do not handshake but find an alternative greeting. The most important thing in all of this is to look out for those who are feeling isolated or anxious and this includes those who have been
