It is hoped that the meetings will take no longer than one hour.


In light of the new guidelines and looking towards a winter of caution and restrictions I would like to let you know the following.
The Haven Benefice will just be organising the Sunday rota of services and the Wednesday communions. No other social activities, groups or events will be restarted at this time. This will be reviewed in December.
The St Mary's Market will continue to operate with tighter controls on social distancing and volunteer bubbles and there are still opportunities to be part of that volunteer team should you wish.
Rotas for intercessions and Readers are in place in some churches and they will remain for the time being. I had thought to allow small choirs but in the light of heightened risk this will not commence before December.
This is not a lockdown, just a slowing of the opening and it is what we expected. Please stay safe and well.
God Bless
