THE OPENING OF CHURCH BUILDINGS TO THE PUBLIC FOR PUBLIC WORSHIP

Following advice from the government and the Church of England, all three parishes will be returning to the controlled limitations of December 2020. In effect, we will have services commencing on Easter Day with maximums of 10 at Abbotskerswell, 14 at Coffinswell, and 25 at Kingskerswell. At Kingskerswell there will still only be singing by a small (3) choir and limited bell ringing.

From Easter onwards the Sunday Services will be as follows:

Coffinswell 09 00 am
Abbotskerswell 10 00 am
Kingskerswell 10 00 am
Kingskerswell 11 00 am

All Services MUST be booked through the Parish Office either by phone or email.

The 11am service will be live streamed on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/The-Three-Wells-Mission-Community-106678921001432/

Attendance at all services will be by appointment only and must be booked through the Parish Office.  These services will follow Government guidelines with regards to social distancing and it is now mandatory to use face coverings whilst in the church.  Also, once inside the Church it is not permitted to socialize with other members of the congregation.  Please follow government advice regarding symptoms or if you belong to a vulnerable group.

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
