The decision has been taken by the PCC Standing Committee that we cease in-person worship in church until further notice in order to protect our members. For how long will depend on the guidance from Westminster. Of course, we would all hope for the original shorter time of mid-February, but the feeling is this might go up to or beyond Easter.
Notification of when we are open again will be on the church website (www.holytrinityamblecote.org.uk) and on our facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/840249282654151) as well as on the notices near the Lych gate.
We appreciate that not all of us use email, facebook, zoom, and the internet in general, which is why you have received this letter. We endeavour to keep in touch with you as best we can, but we would also encourage you to actively seek information also.
During Lockdown 3.0, I would like to encourage you to keep up your prayers and doing what you can to spread the love of God. Our regular worship will be available on Facebook and via Zoom, and I will consider ways in which to share worship with those who don’t make use of these.
Generally, the following will apply:
Tue to Sat Morning Prayer 9am on zoom Tue to Fri Evening Prayer 5pm on zoom Wednesday Mass at 9.30 on zoom and facebook Thursday Mass at 11 on zoom and facebook SUNDAY Mass at 10 on zoom and facebook Evening Prayer (Vespers) at 6 on zoom
Please contact Fr. Alan for Zoom access numbers.
Thank you for your continued support, financial, emotionally, prayerfully and otherwise. It is so much appreciated in these months of uncertainty.
So you know, I am one of those of us who need to take extra care because we are looking after others who are vulnerable. Please keep all your church family in your prayers at this time. Pray for those in authority making the decision, and ask for God to bestow wisdom.
May God bless you in these continuing strange times.
