OUR SERVICE ARRANGEMENTS
While we have a vacancy for a vicar, we have a single Eucharist service each Sunday in the parish starting at 10am - in St Luke’s
Church on first, third and fifth Sundays and in St John’s Church on second and fourth Sundays. A monthly Children’s Service is
held on the third Sunday in St John’s church at 9am.
Hand sanitiser and masks
Hand sanitiser is freely available and use of masks during a service is optional.
Service booklets, hymn books and hymn singing
Parish service booklets and hymn books are used and may be picked up when entering a church and after a service left on a
table at the back of a church. Five hymns are normally sung during a service by both choir and congregation– as an introit,
between the New Testament reading and the Gospel, during the Offertory, after the Communion and at the end. The Gloria,
Sanctus and Agnus Dei are also sung depending on the season.
Reading sheets and notices
Red pre-printed sheets containing the readings and special prayers for a Sunday are used in both churches and may be
collected on entry to a church. Notices are printed on the back of the sheets which may be taken home.
Use of nods and/or waves continue to be an acceptable form of greeting.
During the third hymn, a bag or basket is taken round all people attending a service by a steward for offertory collections –
either cash or in yellow gift aid envelopes.
Presently bread intincted with wine is offered for distribution to all members of the congregation who are invited to form a
socially distanced queue to receive the elements from a priest standing at the front of the nave. Gluten free wafers are available
if required. Stewards will guide communicants to the queue.
Post-service refreshments using washable crockery are provided in the refectory.
