In the St Weonards group of parishes, like many other rural multi-parish benefices, ministry is shared between our vicar, associate minister, lay volunteers, and other retired clergy.
Joining in worship at home and in church
We hope that you have found time for worship, prayer and reflection at home wherever you are in St Weonards Benefice in recent weeks. It is good for us to continue to meet 'virtually' as we pray for our world, country and local communities at this unsettling time. However, we now have the opportunity to worship in church as well. Please see the list of services below.
St Weonards Group of Parishes
Saturday 17th October 2020
5.30 pm Harvest St Weonards Church
We shall be celebrating the harvest and all the blessings in our lives. This year our gifts will be necessities such as tinned goods which will be donated to the Ross Community Larder. We are unable to accept any perishable items. A small choir will help us to worship joyfully. We look forward to seeing you.
Sunday 18th October
Lay Led Morning Worship 11.00am Zoom
masks are now mandatory for everyone aged 11 or over attending services in church to help minimise the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus (unless you are covered by one of the exemptions). For more information, please refer to the detailed Church of England guidance on face coverings. There is an exemption that covers places of worship making it possible for more than six people to gather there. However, this is not a blanket exemption. You cannot be part of a group of more than six unless you are from the same household or support bubble.
Planning to visit one of our churches?
You will be aware that from 24 March 2020, all Church of England churches were closed, which prevented public worship in our churches. The COVID-19 restrictions now allow worship to take place with appropriate protocols in place. Small numbers of people are also allowed for baptism, wedding and funeral services in our churches, subject to local risk assessments. Please contact our vicar Reverend Elizabeth Cathie for further information about what is possible.
In normal times, you can click on the More Events ... link in the side navigation bar for details of when services are held, and where. Or you can download the current month's service rota which is from this month's Parish News.
During 2020, we are following the 'Year A' Lectionary of Bible readings.
Everyone is very welcome at any of our services.
