Please find below a letter from Revds David Hildred and Robert Legge regarding the second lockdown for England, November 2020.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that a second lockdown is to be introduced in England on Thursday 2nd November, we can confirm that there will be no church services taking place in churches across the Kidderminster East parish during November. We will, however, be holding 2 online services via Zoom each Sunday at 10:45am (for 11:00am start) and at 6:30pm. (This Sunday, Remembrance Sunday, the service will start at 10:55am with an Act of Remembrance so please login early.) Please note in the spirit of the government’s announcement, churches in the parish will not be opening for Private Prayer either. The Archbishop of Canterbury is encouraging churches to continue the good work already started by using technology (where possible), supporting our communities and to make November a month of prayer. You can also access online Morning Prayer services at 8:00am Monday -Thursday & Saturday as well as Parish Prayer every other Wednesday evening at 7:20pm (next one is 4th November) and the service of Contemplative Prayer at 7:00pm on Thursdays (next one is on 12th November).
If you require the links for any of the services mentioned above, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6:00pm on the day before the service is taking place. For further information, please do check out the parish website www.kidderminstereast.org.uk, email or phone the Parish Office (email@example.com / 01562 822131) and leave a message.
We are happy to advise that the live-streamed Forget-Me-Not services on the parish Facebook page will still be happening at 7pm each evening Monday 2nd to Friday 6th November.
David (Team Rector), Robert (Team Vicar) and the Parish Team
