We are determined more than ever to celebrate the best news we have ever been given – the news which made the angels sing, the shepherds venture to Bethlehem, and the magi cross distant lands – the news of the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Face Coverings – Plan B
Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord, and guard the door of my lips Psalm 141:3
Apart from those exempt, face coverings are now required in church. They however can be removed for singing and for eating and drinking. Those who are doing readings or leading prayers are asked to remove face coverings to assist lip readers. Since we have kept in place all the key pandemic-related precautions (hand sanitising, Communion in one kind, etc), there is only modest adaptation required of us now. Be resolved to let none of these things discourage or distract you from keeping a holy Advent and a joyful Christmas!
