Archbishop Nikitas has just annnounced that all churches in our Archdiocese are to be closed for public worship until further notice with immediate effect. Sadly this means that we will have to cancel the Sunday Liturgies planned for January. (In the unlikely event that we are able to open again before the end of January those who have already made bookings will be notified, and there will be a public announcement with regard to vacant places.) As before when the Church was closed I shall be saying services at home on behalf of the Community, and I invite all who want to join me in saying prayers at that time to do so. Last spring I sent out some prayers appropriate for Morning and Evening prayers, and you could use these (email me if you don't have a copy and would like one), or read some of the psalms or pray your own prayers. I shall be serving Vespers on Saturday evenings at 6:00 and Matins on Sunday mornings at 9:00. I ask you all to join with me in following Archbishop Nikitas' request that we "ask God to send his healing grace upon the world", and that we remain "obedient to the Church, the government regulations and medical professionals."
With my love to you all,

If you can, please consider helping the Community by becoming a member or making a donation (or both!).
The cost of becoming a member is £20 per year or £10 per year for the unwaged.
You can also donate directly towards the upkeep of our church, through donating into our joint parishes account- please contact our joint parishes treasurer- Bede Gerrard
