Our two Parishes have agreed to restart services of Holy Communion, beginning this Sunday, the 9th August. It will be very special to share this sacrament together again, just as it has been wonderful to gather together again over these past weeks.
On Sunday 9th August there will be a service of Holy Communion at 9.30 am at St Michael’s, Beer, followed by an 11.00am Service of the Word at St Gregory’s Seaton, where we will also host our telephone service.
On Sunday 16th August this will be reversed; 9.30am Service of the Word at Beer followed by 11.00am Holy Communion at Seaton. Participants with the 11.00am telephone service are given the option of having the clergy bring the sacrament to them if they feel safe to receive it this way.
Strong guidelines on how to conduct such a service have been received from the Church of England and these will be followed. Please co-operate with directions given by the sidemen and clergy.
The online service and the telephone service will continue on a weekly basis.
The service resources for this coming Sunday are now available. Thank you to all who have used previous weeks and for your helpful feedback. As services in our church buildings continue to develop we are committed to carrying on with these video and other resources for those not able or not wishing to join us physically.
Following updated advice form the Government and the Church of England we are asking all who enter our church buildings to please wear a face-mask. Clergy will be wearing clear visors for leading worship and face-masks for before and after the service. This is not a substitute for social distancing and other good health practices.
The Service resources for this Sunday are now available. These complement our telephone service and our gatherings in our Church buildings on Sundays. You are welcome to make use of any that are helpful to you. Please use the contact link to find out more.
Our church buildings are now reopened, both for private prayer (Wednesday’s 10.00-12.00) and for a simple Sunday Service. St Michael’s, Beer, meets at 9.30, and St Gregory’s, Seaton, meets at 11.00. The Service from Seaton is also shared over the telephone with those wish to join in from home. Please use the contact link to find out more.
