This Sunday we have an in person Holy Communion and Patronal at Nayland at 10am, and Morning Prayer at Leavenheath, also at 10am.
Pre booking is not required but please do remember to fill in the track and trace form as you enter, wear a mask and observe social distancing. Sanitising gel is provided.
Next week’s First Sunday will be a Songs of praise service on Leavenheath Village green, near the Village Hall for the whole benefice. If you would like to choose your favourite hymn for inclusion in that service and a few words about why you chose it, please send your choices to Jane Addis by email. ( email@example.com). September’s First Sunday service will be back online
As the majority of people are returning to in person services now, we will be scaling down the provision of online services. Communion services take a day to prepare , record and upload and the views for the last two services were down to 4, Rev Val will not be recording any more after July. However, we will provide a link to a communion service and/or to the Cathedral communion.
Here is Reverend Val celebrating Holy Communion on behalf of the Benefice, please scroll down further for the service sheet.
