Update 16 August: In Grange we have had a weekly emailing of the Pewsheet and chosen Lectionary readings, together with a clergy letter (either from the Team Rector Jim or from our Support Minister Sue Wilson) and a suggested service from Jim.
Each member of the congregation has also received a weekly telephone call from a member of our pastoral team to keep in touch and share news.
After the easing of lockdown restrictions, St Paul’s has been open on Wednesday mornings between 10 and noon for private prayer, and each Sunday morning some of us have met at the bandstand in Park Road gardens at the time we would normally have met in church. We have marked the end of the gathering saying together The Lord’s Prayer.
Plans are now in place to reopen St Paul’s with a Eucharist service on Sunday 13th September and we hope to reopen the Fell Church on the 4th October.
Today the church bell was rung at 11 am to mark the 75th anniversary of VJ Day
