Mobile Fish & Chips

Update 24th March:
After much deliberation we have decided to temporarily close.
We know we are a life line to many and we are terribly sorry but until we can work a way to get food to you contactless it’s just not safe for us, our staff and of course our lovely customers. By trading normally we would be encouraging you all to leave the safety of your homes, this would make us irresponsible and you all mean so much to us we need you to stay safe! Please all of you respect this lockdown, it’s not a holiday it’s to keep us all safe!

We love you all, stay home, stay safe and we will see you soon xXx nat & jen xXx

Church closure

Message from the Team Rector:(abridged version)

Dear All
As you will have heard we now have to keep our beloved churches locked until further notice.
Please could you inform me of the contact details of those church members who are isolated, ill or vulnerable as I am forming a chain of contact by the staff and lay people. If you already have a set-up in the village, please could you let me know if any one needs a pastoral call from us.

At this time all Weddings and Baptisms cannot take place. I have this afternoon taken the first of what I expect to be many graveside funerals with the restricted number of family only present. This is the only form of service we can hold in our church yards, and I will contact Church Wardens individually should this be required

I held a staff meeting, and we discussed how we continue to prayer together whilst being dispersed. There will be a service on the website each Sunday as well as other aids to daily prayer. We are also planning how we uphold Holy Week, and I will ask The Revd Jo Neary to update you on that and all things prayerful and spiritual next week. We will also be posting 3 short reflections and comments each day on our various platforms. Jo will post each morning to wake you up, Fiona, our Curate, and (I hope our partner priests), a mid day reflection of hope, and I will post this at the end of the day. I hope this will help people to see that Church is not closed but we are doing church differently.

The Team News will be delivered normally and we are exploring if we can put an electronic copy on the website for all to read.

Please keep looking at the website for regular updates, and I personally want to thank you all for the magnificent job you are all doing in the service of the Kingdom across the team. Please be assured of our prayers for you all, and your families at this time.
