Church Services

As of July 5th we are able to hold  services in our  churches.

On July 5th there will be a  service at Erpingham Church  at 10am. The following  message is from Father Brian.

1.  No one must feel that they will be expected to attend

2   No one who is shielding,or particularly vulnerable should attend

3   When ever possible please keep 2 metre distance at all times 

4   No one needs to wear a face mask or gloves unless they wish to do so

5  Holy Communion will be administered in one kind only - the sacred host will be received standing at the crossing infront of the chancel screen Any one unable to move forward in that way, needs to ask me to bring communion  to  them where they are seated

6  There will be a one way system from the communion point back via the side aisle to your seat

7  A collection plate will not be passed round during the service, but a donations plate will be placed on the table at the back of the church

8  Refreshments will not be served after the service. After the Angelus we leave church as soon as we feel able.

 However every Saturday Father Brian will continue to send a short service appropriate for the next day for you to use if you wish and this will  appear under the 'Special Sunday Service' folder on the left hand side. The Diocese and other benefices also have videos you can watch online.
