UPDATED 21-Dec-2021 with changes and cancellations
This is the last full News Sheet until the New Year, with the next one due for Sunday 9th January.
We’ll be working to keep the website’s Calendar and news posts updated if there are any changes to services or events in light of the Omicron variant, so do please check them from time to time.
Share the Light this Advent
Read in the News Sheet about our theme for Advent this year, and about our special services which are now being held online.
Sadly we have had to cancel our Community Cinema screening of The Muppet Christmas Carol on the 22nd December. We have been keeping an eye on the news about the incredibly rapid rise of the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus and feel it is too big a risk to continue with the screening.
In light of the news about the Omicron variant we are cancelling or altering some of our services and events. Please check our website’s calendar and Our Advent Services and Events blog post from time to time to keep up to date.
Advent and Christmas Services
In this updated (on 19/12/2021) copy of the News Sheet this week we have a list of the various services coming up. However, there have been many changes since the list we published even just a few days ago. This is because the rate at which the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus is increasing is giving us cause for concern. So, to help protect everyone in our congregation, we are moving most service online.
The key changes over the coming days are:
The Carol Service (19th December) is now being held online.
The ‘Blue Christmas’ Service (20th December) and Midweek Service (22nd December) are both CANCELLED .
All other services from Christmas Day onwards are now going to be held online.
We realise it’s hard to face these changes yet again, but we really need to be mindful of everyone in our congregation, young and old, and do everything we can to help with their — with your — health and safety.
Sundays and Boxing Day @ Aroma
Sadly Boxing Day @ Aroma will need to be cancelled too, along with the Sunday Afternoons @ Aroma scheduled for 9th January 2022.
We’ll be hoping and praying we can go ahead with the one on the second Sunday in February.
