COVID-19 – Guidance from the Church of England

 

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

 

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, All Saints and all Church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.


Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in the Church  building.


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

 

CORONAVIRUS

STAY HOME  :  PROTECT THE NHS  :  SAVE LIVES

   

 

 

We have rearranged our website to give worship materials and prayer resources as well as the readings that we would normally use at Mass today and a Homily on them.  

 

You will find June’s Sermon that she would have Preached today on the website.

 

Fr Kevin (our former Priest) is Celebrating Mass in his Vicarage Chapel and has invited us to join his Parish Youtube Chanel The Parish of St Katharine with St Nicholas, YouTube channel

St John’s, Higham are Celebrating Mass and streaming it via Skype.   Please let Fr Peter know if you would like to be linked to this or contact us at allsaintsperryst@gmail.com and we will put you in touch with him.

We know that many of you are unable to bring your planned giving envelopes to Church while it is closed.   The best way to make your regular offering is through the Bank.  Please e-mail allsaintsperryst@gmail.com or telephone the Parish Office on 01474 534398 and leave a message on the answerphone, then we will put you contact with the Treasurer.   Please do not put cash through the Vicarage door as with the current situation we do not wish to put anyone at risk of infection whilst counting it.   Everyone on the Electoral Roll  will be receiving  letter from us soon regarding this.

 

The Church may be closed, but you can still support the Foodbank.   Tins, packets, cleaning materials and items of personal hygiene are all greatly appreciated.   Items can be left in the donation bins at supermarkets.

Thanksgiving for the Departed: for Fr Alan Buik, Terry Doughty, Tony Shaw and all the Recently Departed and George Lane, Doris Hancox, Leslie Holden, Revd John Batson, Minnie Wood and Amy Prior whose anniversaries occur at this time.   May they Rest in Peace.

 

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus

 

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.   Amen.
