Our Remembrance Sunday will be marked differently this year. Events in the Churchyards (by the War memorial in Apethorpe) will still take place, but government regulations direct that we should “discourage public attendance” although passers- by may stand and watch, which is what some may choose to do.
However, everyone is invited to mark the 11am Remembrance on Sunday and on 11th, at their doorsteps. Many of our churches will either ring a bell or there are the clock chimes to listen out for, but for all, this time can be kept in a very significant way at home.
As we enter a second lock-down, the Church of England invites everyone to a month of prayer and there is material on the Church of England website.
Sadly, public worship in our church buildings is suspended again, and Rev Jane Tailby continues a service each Sunday afternoon on Zoom. For details in how to join the service, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address.
If you would like to have a prayer said in church for you please phone Rev. Jane (01780 782271).
