A note from Alastair:
In the midst of pandemic, we are all feeling tired of the restrictions that are in place, but I want to remind us that we are observing these restrictions not for the sake of ‘keeping the rules’ but because we recognize our calling to care for one another in word and deed in all we do.
As such we are asking those who are unvaccinated, or not fully vaccinated, and those unable or uncomfortable wearing a mask to join our worship via Zoom or Livestream and, at this time, not to come to our in-person gatherings. Also, please remember that when we do attend in-person we do need to remain masked, with mask over mouth and nose, for the whole of the service, including and especially when singing.
Let us continue to love and care for each other through these difficult times.
It continues to be possible to attend Sunday worship in person or via a livestream on Facebook or on our website. You may also wish to request access to the Zoom meeting for worship which leads into a discussion and online coffee hour - please contact the office to arrange this.
Please note, as we continue are our Zoom-Livestream Hybrid format, there will be times when those of us in the Church building will not see contributors such as intercessors, readers, or even preachers – though we will be able to hear them through our sound system.
To access the livestream on our website, click on the Livestreams button above.
After the service, we'll be gathering on Zoom for our virtual coffee hour.
St John's is an affirming, and welcoming, community - please do join us.
