Sunday 18 July

The PCC met during this last week and for now we've decided that our guidance will be as before for our Covid-prevention arrangements in church. We'll still advise face coverings, social distancing, communion in one kind (bread only) and no congregational singing. We welcome people's views on this - whether you agree or disagree. Please speak with Andrew or Shana, or Liz and William (our Churchwardens). The Hackney figures still aren't good. There are 38 times more people with the virus now than there were at the start of May, and the R rate is between 1.1 and 1.4. In our Ward (Victoria) the case numbers are up 83% this week on the previous week. We'll keep monitoring the figures and review our guidance periodically.

Sunday 18th July — Junior Church Picnic. We'll meet on Well Street Common after the morning church service. Please bring your own food/drink/picnic blanket.

Oasis Retreat at home on Zoom. Tues 27 July, 10am-1pm. 'Creation - in whose hands?' (our urgent mission to save planet earth) led by Doug Hiza & Martin Davies. If you would like to be part of this it's essential that you email Jane Franklin on (who can then send you the Zoom link). All welcome!

Our Director of Music, Victoria, is attending a Selection Conference on 28 July for ordination in the Church of England. Do please remember her in your prayers. Thank you!

If you would like to sing with Victoria at 7pm on a Wednesday, please speak with her at the end of the service today. On Wednesdays, please use the side, kitchen door (rather than the main entrance).

We are looking for someone who would like to head up work on the maintenance and development of the churchyard. Please speak to Andrew or Shana if you'd be interested.

The next church cleaning will be Sat 7 August, 9.30-11.30am.
