Services will continue to be streamed on Facebook Live. We are thankful for the volunteers whom Stewart has been training to run the projection and broadcast to assist him, so it can continue when he is not available. More people to serve in this ministry would still be appreciated. Please speak to Stewart if you are interested.

Wednesday Morning Prayer from the rectory

on Facebook at 9 am. Any changes or cancellations will be announced on Facebook.  

COVID precautions 

While masks are no longer required they are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED and RECOMMENDED for all inside church activities. We will continue to have a social distance corner and would ask if you are seated here to wear a mask, as those in this area are there for added precaution. 

Communion will be offered in both kinds again, and those who are comfortable receiving from the common cup may do so, but as always no one has to take it. To facilitate the administration of the chalice, we will return to using the altar rail for communion, but we are asking you to space out along it, allowing space between people as you will need to remove your mask to receive the wine. This will be a time of experimentation with what works best.

Refreshments

We have resumed refreshments after worship, but only as people sign up as hosts. There is a signup sheet in the Upper Room. 

Hosts are asked to bring and serve the refreshments, and clean up as required. There is small refrigerator on the table in the Upper Room to keep beverages cold, thanks to the donation from Bonnie Connolly.

There are also reusable cups, in keeping with our commitment at the vestry meeting two years ago to reduce or eliminate our use of disposable products. There are compostable coffee cups if you prefer. 

Let’s continue to take care of each other and keep each other safe!
