◊ COVID-19. No doubt we are all concerned about the far-reaching consequences of this present outbreak of Coronavirus. The instruction from Lambeth means that we have had to suspend all public worship in our churches for a season; however long that may last. It’s important that as a faith community we try to maintain our links and common life as far as possible; therefore, we are making available some worship resources which can be used at home. By clicking on the ‘Stay Connected’ tab at the bottom of this page you can access the resources. We know of individuals willing to offer practical help to those within our parishes who are self-isolating. If you need help or know of someone that does, please use the details on the ‘Contacts’ tab to inform us. Above all…. stay safe!
◊ Hospital Chaplains. Please remember to hold in your prayers; Alison, Ashley and George, our chaplains at the Universtity Hospital here in Burton. They are exercising their ministry under very difficult circumstances and providing much needed pastoral support to patients, patients’ families and staff alike. They value our prayerful support.
◊ Newsletter: A newsletter for July is now available on the ‘stay connected’ page of this website. Thanks to Maureen for compiling it and to those who have contributed.
◊ Personal Prayer: Access to St. Paul’s is offered for personal prayer on Wednesdays from 11.00am to 1.30pm; you can visit St. Modwen’s similarly on Saturdays from 10.00am to 12.00 noon. Social distancing is necessary and the prayer times will be managed by two people to ensure everyone’s safety.
◊ Sunday Worship: We’re pleased to announce that public services of Holy Communion will resume at St Paul’s from this Sunday (5th July) at 9.30am. Please enter the church by the south door (disabled access will be by the west door). We are suitably organised for safety whilst in church; however, for those in vulnerable categories, please put your safety first – we quite understand that not everyone will feel confident enought just yet to join us.
Public worship at St Modwen’s and St Aidan’s will be phased in as soon as is practically possible. Please llok out for announcements.
Morning Prayer on Sundays by Zoom will continue to be offered (from St Modwen’s) but at the later time of 11.00am. The Zoom ID and password will be shown on the ‘Stay Connected’ page of this website. Please visit that page for this week’s liturgy sheets, notices, prayer and readings etc.
