WE’RE BACK

Monthly pattern resumes

Sunday 5th July 2020 will go down in history. On this day, along with many other churches in the UK, we held our first church service after a three month break in public services. The Coronavirus lockdown was imposed on 24th March and churches were completely closed until mid-June when they were opened for private prayer – subject to social distancing and health precautions and conditions.

 

At the beginning of July the government allowed churches to open – with restrictions –  for church services. The 0930 service on Sunday 5th July was Morning Prayer when the leader and preacher was our Vicar – the Revd Juliette Hulme.  As live singing isn’t allowed, we used pre-recorded hymns during the service. Below are photographs to mark what is a historic occasion – public worship in St John’s has continued week-in week-out for several hundred years; that is – until this year.  Click on each photo to expand.

Our normal monthly pattern of worship will resume though restrictions remain. Click here for more information.
