UPDATES REGARDING COVID19 ARE HERE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GOOD NEWS at St John’s church

Opening for private prayer on Saturday’s has now been suspended.
Wednesday’s will continue 1.30-2.30pm.

From Sunday 5th July, a simple half hour Holy Eucharist will resume at 9.45am.
Hand sanitizing and social distancing of 2 metres must be observed,
plus a 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.
The Holy Eucharist by Zoom has proved to be popular during lockdown.
This will continue for those who would prefer this and will take place
on Sunday’s at the later time of 11.45am. Invites as usual will go out.
>> Sermons will continue to be on the website and Facebook <<

>>Please note that tapers cannot be used in church to light candles<<

which have been provided and which you can take home with you
or bring your own lighter if you can do that please

Hear Abbie playing the beautiful Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace
The words were written by John Newton. Once a slave trader sailing the route between Britain, Africa and the Caribbean,
when crossing the Atlantic in the year 1750 his ship was in peril in a severe storm. Newton, terrified, prayed to God. As he looked back he realised this was the start of his new life as a Christian.
He became one of the leaders in the campaign to end the slave trade.
The tune is an American melody that probably originated in Scotland
