Dispensation from Canonical Requirements for Public Worship
The Bishop of Lichfield has issued a dispensation from Canonical Requirements for Public Worship for the next two months. This means that any church, with the assent of their wardens and PCC, may decide, if there is urgent reason, such as concerns about the safety of the congregation due to increased risk of infection in the Covid pandemic, to suspend public worship for a limited time. The wardens and PCC of all Churches in the Benefice have agreed to do this. This means that there will currently be no public services of worship at Yoxall, Hamstall Ridware, Mavesyn Ridware and Kings Bromley. The wardens and PCC will review the situation at the end of February. Public notices to this effect will be posted, as required by law. Weddings and Funerals will still take place.
For each week of Lent Deborah, Mike and Frank have written reflections on the daily bible readings. These are available for you to use in your prayers at home.
Please could you telephone me on 01283 575715 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a Children’s Society box for me to collect. Thank you, Deanne
Please look on St Peter’s Church Facebook page each week for the updated 2021 ROOTS resources, these are all related to the Sunday’s BIBLE READING. There is a better ACTIVITY SHEET for children, IN TOUCH – a commentary for adults linked with the weeks news and global issues and CHECK IN – for teenagers and older children. Judith Rickard.
