A message about worship during the coronavirus situation:
UPDATED ON 29th JUNE 2021
WORSHIP DURING THE PANDEMIC
Currently we are holding a 9.30 am Mass on Sundays and an 11am Mass on Wednesdays. You are very welcome, but it is necessary to book for all services.
To book for a service, please contact Joanne (firstname.lastname@example.org)
by 9 am Monday for Wednesday, and by 9 am Thursday for Sunday.
It is not possible to book more than a few days ahead for a service, but if a service is
full one week, you will be given priority for a future week.
Please note that at present the following Covid protocols apply: hand sanitiser must be used on entry, you are invited to leave your details for Test and Trace, face coverings must be worn unless you are medically exempt, Communion will be brought to the pew and in one kind (bread) only, people must sit 2m apart from those not in their household or support bubble, socialising after the service takes places outdoors.
The Mass is Said, with organ music and hymns from the choir on Sundays. At present congregational singing is not permitted.
The church building is open for Private Prayer on Thursdays from 10am-12 noon
and Sundays 3-4.30pm. You do not need to book to visit for this.
We hold Zoom Evensong on Sundays at 6.30 pm, monthly Zoom Children's Services and Zoom Morning Prayer & Coffee at 10.45 am on Saturdays.
For codes to any of these, please contact the Rector: email@example.com
We are distributing resources for worship, for adults and children, via email and post. Please let us know if you would like to receive these.
We are producing a monthly online service of hymns, readings and prayers, going live on the last Sunday of each month. These services, together with reflections, and recordings made by our choir, are available on our YouTube channel: -
Some of our fundraising organ concerts (covering the works of J.S. Bach) are being posted to Richard Brasier's YouTube channel: -
An audio tour of the church building is available here: -
All are very welcome to worship in church or online, and we hope and pray that in due course it will be possible to relax restrictions.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and well. Please do get in touch with the Parish Office, Susannah or Fr. Roy if you would like to speak to us about something, if you would like support in some way, or if you have a need for prayer.
May God's peace, which passes all understanding, be with us all.
The Revd Susannah Brasier (Rector)
Like many organisations, St Laurence is suffering financially due to the pandemic and the loss of income from our halls. We would be very grateful for any donations towards the mission and ministry of the church. Please contact us for details of how to give via online banking.
