A message from the St Matthew’s

Dear Friends
Harking back to Alister’s letter to you all last week, you’ll recall that we resume our Sunday morning 8am Eucharist from 27th September.  The clocks go forward on that day also, so please remember to alter your clocks accordingly. 

Now that we are able to return to our normal service pattern, the video and service resources will cease.  We will continue to provide a copy of the sermon which you can also find on our website. Should the alert levels change in future, we will look to reinstate more online resources. We do hope that you have found them a useful opportunity to connect with God, Alister and your church family.  

We know many of you have shown good sense by staying away from services over the past months, and though the potential change of COVID-19 alert levels hangs in the air, we still ask you to continue exercising caution and not come to church gatherings if you are unwell.  We encourage you to seek medical advice if you have any symptoms, whether COVID related or not.

A final note  – Please be aware that our Blessing of the Animals service will take place on Sunday 4th October at 4pm.  There will be the opportunity to light a candle in remembrance of a much missed companion.  Do come along with your furred, feathered and fluffy friends (real or toy) and give thanks for all animals mean to us.
