by Wednesday 28 Oct sothat he can get the
magazine complete by Saturday, 31st.
Service details - perhaps 'zoom' details, time, etc. - especially details of All Souls
and Remembrance Sunday Details,
opening churches.
Events, maybe somethings 'virtual'?
Hall information + Toddler Group news?
Mother's Union activities and News, Priest's letter, Occasional offices
Anything else of interest
Thank you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hand sanitizing and social distancing of 2 metres must be observed plus the one way system in the church.
If you come to worship please note the signs and further instructions.
Many will not feel ready to return to our church buildings just yet and this is very understandable.
The over 70’s and the clinically vulnerable are to be aware of the risks, whilst the final decision to attend remains with them.
