The Parish Church of St John’s Kingsley

‘How can we sing the Lord’s Song in a strange land’ Psalm 137

Our doors may be closed but we are still open for business as we learn to do church in a different way during this unprecedented situation we find ourselves in

The Archbishop’s write –

‘Being a part of the Church of England is going to look very different in the days ahead. Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day. We may not be able to pray with people in the ways that we used to, but we can certainly pray for people. And we can certainly offer practical care and support. Then by our service, and by our love, Jesus Christ will be made known, and the hope of the gospel – a hope that can counter fear and isolation – will spread across our land’

We are urged to become a different sort of church in these coming months: hopeful and rooted in the offering of prayer and praise and over flowing in the service to the world.

Normally in a crisis the church is the place people come to for prayer and support . With this virus we have a duty of care to protect people and to keep physical contact to a minimum. Even touching a pew that someone else has touched could pass on the virus as we don’t always know who has the illness.

Therefore for everyone’s safety the Church and Church Halls must remain closed for the foreseeable future.

Funerals will be at graveside only with just immediate family present maximum of 5 people including the clergy. Weddings - clergy, bride and groom and the two witnesses making a maximum of 5 people Baptisms are suspended for the time being.

Our website is the best way of getting information and we will be updating this as and when we get information to share.

We look forward to the time when we can once again open the doors and come together as a worshiping community. We are holding our communities in prayer

‘May the peace of God which passes all understanding keep our hearts and minds in knowledge and love of God’
