I hope that this finds you all doing as well as possible.
Today’s will be our last online service for a while (and hopefully, with the positive vaccine developments, it may even prove to be our final dedicated online service), since next Sunday, December 6th, sees us back in our church buildings – at St. John of Beverley, Whatton, at 10AM.
We’ll keep our rhythm of Sunday services between our three larger church buildings for the time being, so that means Orston on December 13th; Aslockton on the 20th; and Whatton again on the 27th, but we of course have our special Advent and Christmas services in all of our six villages. Dates and times of these are being finalised, taking into account all of the Government guidance, and will be communicated to you (electronically and via the Cranmer Group Christmas card through your door!) very shortly.
Given that Nottingham and Nottinghamshire will be back into Tier 3 restrictions, and the need to keep one another safe by following hygiene and social distancing measures in our services, we’re continuing to ask you, if you plan to attend our Sunday services from December 6th, please would you book your place for the service, in advance. Please contact Jade Blaylock, our Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07526 603766, to reserve your place. Once again, this will help us to fit more people into the service; help us look after you better; and hopefully avoid us having to turn anyone away. This will apply especially to our Christmas services, which we hope will be attended by many people who are perhaps not regular members of our congregations.
I look forward very much to seeing you at our services – it’ll be wonderful to be back together to worship the Lord!
In the meantime, here’s the service transcript for today, Sunday, November 29th:
Best wishes to you all, and God bless.
