Following the news this week of the rising infection levels both nationally and locally, we have taken the decision that we will not be holding our advertised in person services this coming Sunday and instead we will be holding an online only service at 10am.
Although we could legally hold in person services in tier 4, with the 53,135 new Covid cases recorded in the UK on Tuesday - the highest single day rise since mass testing began - and the higher transmission risk of this new variant, we feel that we should play it safe rather than bring any unnecessary risk in the short term.
This is especially the case with the hope of vaccination on the horizon and the large number of unwell or vulnerable people in our congregations.
We will let you know about further services in January next week, but at the moment it seems likely that we will move to online only for at least January.
We will be putting together some additional resources for those unable to access online services so if you are aware of any who you think would appreciate those resources please do let us know.
May God bless you over this New Year period and praying for a much better 2021.
