A very warm welcome to our new curate, Shana Maloney.

Midweek Church Opening

The church will be open for Private Prayer on Thursdays from 11.30am to 12.30pm.

Volunteering & Church Rotas

We'd like to work out how many people previously on our church rotas for things that need doing on Sunday mornings, for church cleaning and church opening are happy to remain on that rota. As a church community we're mindful that some of our much loved church members are more vulnerable than others. If you'd like to continue on any rota, please let one of the staff team know and please ask for a personal risk assessment form which we'd like to invite you to complete.

Prayers for Healing

The prayers for healing group are praying in their own homes for all of us. If you would like to send in prayer requests, please send them to: sjoj.healingteam@btinternet.com

If you would like names printed onto the back of this service sheet, please let Andrew know.

Church Cleaning

We'd like to start church cleaning again on Saturday 5th September. And then continue, as we used to, cleaning on the first Saturday of the month. If you'd like to be part of that, please ask for a personal risk assessment form which some people have already kindly filled in. We completely understand that the risks to some people who used to help are too high to make this a sensible thing for them to do. Please think through what's best for you and don't do any more than you think is sensible.

Manuela's Research Project

For her studies Manuela's is doing some research into what people feel allows them to grow in their faith. For anyone on email, you should have been sent a survey to fill out. If you have been sent one, it would be a huge help to Manuela if you could fill it in. If you have not been sent one and would like to fill in the survey, please ask Manuela either to send you one if you have email, or to give you a hard copy of the survey if you don't. We're hoping that the research will also have a practical outcome as it will help us plan things in the future that allow people to grow in their faith.
