As many of you will have heard, Rita Smith, deputy warden and long-standing member of the congregation, very sadly died earlier in May. Her funeral service will take place on Tuesday 7th June at 2pm in St Guthlac's Church. We remember Rita's family and her friends in our prayers at this time. May Rita rest in peace and rise in glory.

Church and COVID-19 arrangements
Whilst we have relaxed most of our restrictions now, communion will be done by intinction (dipping of the bread into the wine by the priest) as we still do not feel it safe to return to a shared cup just yet. We are also not sharing the peace by shaking hands.
SANCTUM: Our church building is open for private prayer throughout the week. Please feel welcome to call in. Our usual hours are between 10.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Saturday. (We will be closed on Thursday mornings for a mid-week clean and when there are special events or services). We hope and pray that it will be a "Sanctum" - a place of peace, prayer and refuge for you and all the community. Thank you.
