Thought for the Week
Christian Hope   As adopted children of God, we know this world and this life is not the whole story. We are children of eternity, living in the faith that this life does not finish at death, and our true spiritual home is in heaven, towards which we are walking as joyful pilgrims.

All Souls  Unfortunately, due to present restrictions, there will not be an All Souls service this year. However, the churches will be open and welcoming on All Souls Day, 1st November. Please do come in and pray, and light a candle for your loved one.


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
