Letter to parishioners, 22 December 2020

Christmas is NOT cancelled! We just need to do things a little differently…

Tuesday, 22 December 2020

Dear Friends in Christ,

I am writing to you at this unusual time of the week to let you know how the current national situation is going to impact on our services over the coming week.

Firstly, let me say loudly and clearly: Christmas is not cancelled!  However, it would be irresponsible of us to ignore the sense of apprehension and concern that is being felt by many. Bearing that in mind, I thought it would be helpful if I gave you a full list of the services that will be taking place between today and the beginning of 2021.
