We are really pleased that services in our church buildings are continuing. This Sunday 27th September there will be a Holy Communion service at St Mary's, Burwell, at 10am, live streamed to Zoom. All being well, and subject to updated Covid-19 restrictions, we are hoping to have that St Etheldreda's, Reach, will be open 2 - 4pm for Private Prayer and dropping off of harvest donations, with short service of prayers at 3pm outside. Details about booking for the services in church are here. If you would like to join in with services and groups on Zoom, please enter your details on our Keeping in Touch page and we will send you log-in information. Our Zoom Code of Practice is here.
We are continuing to open both our churches for individual, private prayer, in line with the government guidelines for social distancing and gathering. Next week our church opening times are a little different. St Etheldreda's Church, Reach, will be open all day Thursday.
We have set up a page here for resources to use for prayer and worship, including links to video recordings of our Facebook Sunday Services and Morning and Night Prayer which are 8.30am and 8.30pm most days, which you can access without needing a Facebook account. During September, the recordings will be posted on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with prayers to read posted on the other days. The week's sermon is posted on Facebook on Sunday mornings as Thought for the Week, available from 8.30am. This week's sermon can be accessed here.
You can access the St. Mary's & St. Etheldreda's Facebook Page here and the Refresh Cafe & Messy Church Facebook Page here. Refresh Café and Messy Gathering are also meeting on Zoom, and more details are available on request.
We also have an Information Phone Line - 01638 598958 - where you can hear the latest Sunday morning Facebook service, other special services, an audio version of our Pew Sheet or connect to our Live Sunday Morning Zoom Service. (Please contact the church administrator prior to using Zoom)
