K.U.: December 2020
With the restrictions of Tier 4 now in place, along with the rapid increase in Covid infections, particularly those linked to the new variant, we have taken the decision to suspend worship at church for the time being.
Recognising our duty of care, the need to do all that we can to help keep the wider community of Wantage safe and play our part in trying to minimise the spread of the virus, we feel that this is the right thing to do.
The Church Stewards, Church Council and I continue in our commitment to ensure that we keep everyone as connected and as in touch as we possibly can, through emails, texts, WhatsApp, letters and phone calls.
We will continue to send out weekly Orders of service to use at home, have a weekly Zoom service each Sunday at 10:30am and put acts of worship on the Circuit YouTube Channel. Please contact me directly for further details. email@example.com
With love and God Bless
