revive your Church with the breath of love,

and renew the face of the earth,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Following discussions with the Church wardens, I have taken the decision that it will no longer be a requirement to wear masks in church or hand sanitise.

However, those who feel more vulnerable can still continue to wear a mask and sanitise and should sit in church where they feel more secure.

Wine is still not to be used in communion services, but we hope that this restriction can soon be lifted.

Thank you for all the ways you have, as a church family, worked together to keep us all safe.

With my prayers and trusting to yours
