Vicar's Newsletter for 13th september

Dear all,
 
Please note that Sunday worship is unaffected by the new 'rule of six' being introduced and enforced by law from Monday 14th September. It does mean, however, that no more than six people from the same household or bubble could sit together in church.
From the CofE website:
'The Church of England is engaging with the Government and will provide new advice to churches but we do not expect to be in a position to provide that until the week beginning September 14.'
 
Saturday Morning Open Prayer Meeting on Zoom
If you haven't already done so, why not download Zoom onto your device (it's free) and join a 9.30am to 10.00am Saturday morning prayer meeting for the Hertford Benefice. Let me know by Thursday 17th September if you would like to join in on Saturday 19th. I will then send you the link to join the meeting which you join using video - i.e. your device camera (so we can all see each other!). You will be invited to join some minutes early for a 'meet and greet' and to sort any technical issues. Please check that your camera and microphone are unmuted.
 
A reminder that names of those attending worship must be recorded and kept for 21 days for the Test and Trace system. Face coverings are now required by law to be worn in places of worship. Congregational singing is still not permitted.
 
 
HOLY COMMUNION
Please note that Holy Communion will only be received by the congregation in one kind (bread/wafer only). You are asked to follow the direction of a churchwarden/sidesperson and when you receive please return to your seat before removing your face covering to consume. Communion will be administered whilst standing. Kneeling at the communion rail is suspended.

SPRING CAFÉ TAKE-AWAY SERVICE 

Spring Café open from 10.00am - 2.00pm on Mondays to Wednesdays each week as a take-away service only. When things return to some kind of new normal, the plan is to open the café again for sit-in drinks and meals. We have no idea when this might be possible.

The cafe door accessed from the churchyard will be the only one open.
