Dear Friends …
In respect of the First Minister’s announcement this evening, which placed Wales into Tier 4 of the covid protection measures, I can confirm that places of worship are allowed to remain open at this tier.
Therefore: we plan to hold our Carol Services tomorrow (20th Dec.), as previously planned, at 10:45 and 15:00. Provided nothing further changes, we will hold Midnight Mass at 23:30 on Christmas Eve and a small Christmas Day service at 10:00. We will also be hosting an online-only Christingle Service on Christmas Eve at 16:00 on our YouTube channel (address below).
We will then consider what, if any, alterations to service patterns should happen whilst we remain in Tier 4 and let you know, but if you see no update, you can continue coming as normal.
We urge you to stay safe; if you are no longer comfortable coming out, you have our full support to stay home. The Church has been here for 2000 years, and it will be here when you return. Please remember that we stream all our services on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/StJohnsChurchMaindee .
God bless us … every one.
