 A Message from the Metropolitan Archbishops

BAPTISMS: we have started to make bookings this week with the earliest possible date being Sunday 23rd May. This is being done tentatively and with restrictions in place initially and may be liable to change depending on the evolving Covid situation. If you would like your child to be baptised please contact the parish office.

PARISH HALL: As we move along the governments pathway out of lockdown we are looking at ways of being able to re-open the parish hall. Once our general risk assessment has been approved we will be in touch with individual groups to discuss getting them up and running again safely. Thank you for your patience with this matter -it has not gone unnoticed.

UPDATED GUIDANCE ON SINGING IN THE LITURGY: The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government has updated the Places of Worship Guidance on singing from 28th March. This is in line with the road map which the Prime Minister published in February and corresponds to the successful reaching of point 1b. The main changes are that small groups of singers will be allowed to perform, or rehearse for performance, only where essential to an act of communal worship. This should be limited to as few singers as possible, with social distancing being maintained at all times. Communal singing should not take place. As soon as we can get music back into masses we will but we are not quite there yet. We have been strictly following the government/Diocesan rules throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so until the end. Thank you for your understanding.

OFFERTORY ENVELOPES: The new Offertory envelopes have been delivered this week. Thank you for using your envelopes - this increases the size of your donation by 25% at no additional cost to yourself.

STEWARDSHIP NEWSLETTER: As a sign of the times the latest newsletter is online. You can view it HERE, with updates from Caritas, SYMT and more.

PARISH COUNCIL: Minutes from the meeting on 22nd November are HERE.

CHEQUES: Can I remind parishioners that any cheques please be made payable to CHRIST THE KING CHURCH. The bank will no longer accept any other variation. Thank you for your support
