Week update 10th September

10 Sep 20

Dear friends, 

I hope all is well despite the latest update about social meetings

However, church services can still go ahead as per the government and Church of England's latest guidance as follows:

Last updated Wednesday 9 September at 18:38 from website with link underlined

Following indications that the number of people permitted to take part in a social gathering is to be reduced from 30 to six in England, we understand the new regulations will not apply to public worship or individual prayer in church buildings, funerals or weddings. 

Any changes in update will be sent out to you.This Sunday our joint benefice service will be at St Laurence at 10.30am.  We will be following the usual guidelines. 

This Saturday - don't forget Phil on the cycle ride for the Historical Churches Trust (half sponsorship proceeds to the church) and Margaret and Ian on foot.

Next Wednesday -Songs of Praise Service (without the singing) at St John's 10.00am 

In the meantime, do take care and God bless, 

John

 Rev. John Langanlds 

It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the Curate of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
