◊ Newsletter: A newsletter for November is now available on the ‘stay connected’ page of this website. Thanks to Maureen for compiling it and to those who have contributed.
◊ Financial Giving: A new page has been added to this website… ‘DONATE’. Thank you so much for keeping your regular giving up-to-date. If you have been unable to do so, you can of course bring your gifts when you resume worship in church, or you can make a donation safely and easily on-line from our web page.
◊ Public Worship: The latest lockdown conditions mean that public worship at all three churches of the ‘Burton Three’ has been suspended. However, St. Modwen’s will open for private prayer between 10h00 and 11h00 on Saturdays, similarly, St. Paul’s will open between 10h00 and 11h00 on Fridays.
Watch this space for developments as we come out of this second lockdown!
◊ Online Worship: During this second, national lockdown, we will be offering online worship in the form of zoom morning and evening prayer. Please see our ‘Stay Connected’ page for more details and other home-worship resources.
