RESUMING CHURCH SERVICES - A MESSAGE FROM OUR VICAR

Throughout the life of Jesus, and in history of the early church, people came together to worship.  Sharing in a common life is an important part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus and this is one of the reasons why, for many, these last months, when church buildings have been closed, have been so challenging.  Although the church has been active in works of service and online, there is something special about the places where we gather. So it is with gladness I am able to announce that, in keeping with the recently updated government guidance, services will resume in all of the Theydon Parishes from this Sunday 5th July.  Things will be a bit different - services will be said for now, and there will not be groups for children and young people in church until September at the earliest (they do continue online - see www.rbf.org/theydon).  Everything we do will be fully risk assessed, and follow the guidelines from the Church of England and national government.  For example, we will be applying physical distancing measures and making sure service books are used by only one person per Sunday.  When we share in Holy Communion, we will not share the Peace in the service, only the consecrated bread will be offered with minimal contact and we will remain standing throughout.  A collection will not be taken during the service, instead there will be a retiring collection on the way out, including opportunity to give using contactless card payments at St Mary's Theydon Bois.
In all these things, let us be kind and bear with one another in love, persevering in prayer and rejoicing in hope, as Paul wrote to the Romans (Romans 12.9-13).  There is no compulsion to come forward to Communion, please participate as much as you feel able at this time.  Our online Sunday recorded services will continue throughout July (and longer if they are needed) and on Sunday evenings and midweek, services continue on Zoom.
