Pastoral Letter 4th July 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope that this finds you all safe and well.

Tomorrows 10.00 service will be relayed, on Zoom, from within St Aidan’s church. There will only be my husband and I there but this is a small step towards the day when public worship can start again in church. It all looks a bit different inside the buidling. The chairs have been arranged two metres apart, mindful of physical distancing and public health hygiene guidelines. It will feel very strange for everyone as we tentatively move towards the ‘new normal’. 

Baptisms, weddings and funerals can take place in church but with a limited number of guests or mourners and no singing. This has, and continues to be a harrowing time for bereaved families particularly with the added restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Please hold these people in your prayers. 

As from next week, the church will be open from 2 - 3pm each Wednesday for individual private prayer. 


Sunday 5th 10.00 Book of Common Prayer service of Holy Communion - Zoom

Tuesday 7th 9.15 Holy Communion - Zoom

Wednesday 8th July 2 - 3pm Individual private prayer

Thank you for your continued patience and support in these challenging and ever changing times.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.

Courage to change the things I can,

and wisdom to know the difference.

Every blessing,
