First Sunday service 5th September 2021

This week we have four in person services; 8am Holy Communion at Nayland, 10am Holy Communion at Polstead, 10am Morning Prayer at Wiston, and 6:30pm Evensong at Stoke.

We are asking everyone to continue to observe social distancing.  The churchwardens and ministry team have agreed that in the two larger churches of Stoke and Wiston, one side of the aisle will be for people with masks and the other for non mask wearers, if required. In the smaller churches of Wiston, Leavenheath and Polstead we are encouraging the continued use of masks by everyone; it is still a matter of choice and consideration for others in all the churches. We will be reviewing these issues again at the September Churchwardens/ministry team  meeting so if you have any views about these, please let your churchwardens know.  Sanitising gel will still be provided and we recommend its use until further notice.

This week’s online service is First Sunday.
