Vicar's Newsletter for 23rd August

Dear all,

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

Due to social distancing measures none of the Benefice churches is large enough to host a Benefice service on fifth Sundays of the month.  Details of services below.
 
SCAM ALERT FROM NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE
'A new email scam is targeting members of the church office with emails imitating local church reverends, asking individuals to purchase gift cards and vouchers: northyorkshire.police.uk/tszeqdpy
We’re aware of a number of reports from churches within the Diocese of York, but these scammers are also operating nationally. They are well-researched and find the correct names to pose under before sending their communications to church wardens, treasurers and other volunteers.
If you receive an email of this nature, report it to North Yorkshire Police by calling 101.
❗️If in any doubt about the legitimacy of an email, check the sender’s address and if it is claiming to be someone you know, call them to verify if they have sent it. Be very wary of email communications asking you to make purchases or pay money.'
 
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.
