Vicar's Newsletter for 16th August

Dear all,
Please note that the audio service available on Sunday is in three parts and no need to search for worship songs as these are part of the service! More information below.

ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETINGS

The deadline for the holding of APCMs this year has been extended by a further month to 30th November.

FACE COVERINGS

A reminder that face coverings are now required by law to be worn in places of worship. 

There are valid exemptions, in particular, those who are leading services or events in a place of worship, and those who assist them (for instance by reading, preaching, or leading prayer) do not always need to wear a face covering, although one should be worn especially if physical distancing cannot be maintained (i.e. distributing consumables). This exemption does not apply to worshippers, who should wear face coverings consistent with the requirements for any other public space.

Due to social distancing measures none of the Benefice churches is large enough to host a Benefice service on fifth Sundays of the month. 
 
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.
 
Churches opening:
A form of online worship will continue to be made available on Sundays via the All Saints Hunmanby website. From Sunday 9th August the service available online will be an audio recording only from the live worship held in All Saints Hunmanby the previous Sunday. See below.
