This Week's Notices

Week beginning 29th November

At this week's Ministry Team meeting, we discussed how we long to open our Churches more during this second period of lockdown for Individual Private Prayer.
Our longing echoes the letter from Archbishops and the Bishop of London calling Churches to fast and pray on Thursdays during this lockdown, for our NHS, for our country and for our community.
After much discussion, the ministry team and PCCs have decided that we should open our Churches in both Towcester and Greens Norton from Monday to Saturday for 1 hour every day.
This will be from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and on Sunday from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm.
In addition Easton Neston and Bradden will be open on Thursday 10:30 am to 11:30 am.  
This is for the lockdown period up to the 2nd December when we will look at returning back to alternate days.  
We will be advertising this through this website, social media pages and posters, but the best way for people to know is word of mouth, so please can each of you tell at least one other person that church remains open!

Important Notice about Public Worship
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England Churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
Please do read this statement and join us along with the Archbishops in prayers.
For those who have planned a baptism, wedding or funeral we are awaiting advice as to whether these can continue.
