SUNDAY 7TH MARCH: THE THIRD SUNDAY IN LENT
There are no worship or in person events
at St Barnabas OR Christ Church until April 2021
To watch Fr Paul's service for the Third Sunday of Lent please go to:
On the Church of England Facebook Page/Website from 9am on Sunday 7 March
This will be a service for the Third Sunday of Lent on the theme
Overturning the Tables. It will be led by Rev Canon Chris Russell from
the Crypt Chapel in Lambeth Palace.
EASTER SUNDAY AND EASTERTIDE
Public worship will resume at St Barnabas on Easter Sunday (Sunday 4 April)
and at Christ Church on Low Sunday (Sunday 11 April).
We will then follow the same pattern that we used during the restricted
periods in 2020:
Said Communion at 11am at St Barnabas on the 1st and 3rd Sundays (starting 4 April),
Said Communion at 11am at Christ Church on the 2nd and 4th Sundays (starting 11 April),
and Said Communion at 11am on the 5th Sunday, with the venue confirmed nearer the time.
Strict conditions will apply to everyone within the church building and
grounds during steps 1, 2 and 3 of the government roadmap out of lockdown.
During steps 1 and 2 (until at least 17 May), there will be a 2 metres
social distance between households (where possible), one way directions, and
limited interaction between households. Face masks must be worn unless you
have a permitted exemption.
The number of people allowed into our churches to participate in public
worship will be restricted. So that we can manage the number of people at St Barnabas on Easter Sunday,
please confirm to Matthew Ambler if you are hoping to join us for that service.
2021 LENT APPEAL
This year's Lent Appeal will be in support of the work of Kirkwood Hospice.
Please continue to put aside the money you save from giving something up, to
give to this worthy cause.
For those able to attend the Easter Sunday service at St Barnabas, there
will be an opportunity to make your donation during that service. For those
unable to attend that service we will confirm the arrangements for making a
donation as we approach Holy Week.
