From Sunday 5th July services will resume in our church buildings. It will be great to be able to worship together once again in a way we have not been able to do since March.
Short services will be held at 9.30am at St Michael’s, Beer, and 11.00am at St Gregory’s, Seaton. These will be a simple Service of the Word and will be very similar to services offered online and via door-to-door deliveries over the past months.
Whilst all are welcome there will be a limit on attendance due to the need to maintain social distancing. Please do not attend if you are experiencing and coronavirus symptoms or are otherwise isolating.
The service, as a document and video, is now available. To mark the 72nd anniversary of the founding of the NHS, the theme for this week is our health service and the vision and commitment which inspired it.
There’s some really exciting news to share for the Coastal Mission Community of Seaton and Beer. Simon Hitchcock, our Curate, has now finished his training period. Having met the exhaustive list of training requirements to Bishop Roberts satisfaction, Simon has now completed his title post. Great work Simon, and thanks to Julia for all the support given.
The just-as-good-news is that Simon will remain working with us as Associate Priest. That means that we will continue to receive the benefit of his ministry across the Mission Community. Please continue to hold Simon, and his family, in your prayers.
Here’s a short video I recorded to develop a little thought I had whilst recording this Sunday’s service in St Gregory’s church building. How do you react to it? What would you challenge, and what would you add?
This week our two church buildings are reopening for limited hours for private prayer. We cannot currently lead public prayers or offer simple services, other than funerals. We hope there will be a further easing of restrictions nest month.
St Gregory’s, Seaton – Monday to Friday & Sunday – 10.00am to 12.00noon
St Michael’s, Beer – Wednesday & Sunday – 10.00am to 12.00noon
