Sunday 12th September 2021

There are four in person services this Sunday, 10am Holy Communion at Nayland, 10am Holy Communion at Stoke, 10am Morning Prayer at Leavenheath, and 6:30pm Evensong at Wiston.

 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. We will be reviewing these issues on Monday, 13th September at the Churchwardens/ministry team meeting so if you have any views about these, please let your churchwardens know.  

There is no online service this week.  The link below will take you the worship page of St. Edmundsbury Cathedral  where you will find the times and links to their online services (and service sheets), which can also be accessed through their Facebook page.
