Prayer and Message from the Rector 18 July 2021

When we went into the first lock down with the Covid pandemic we were quickly told all the things we couldn’t do. As we approach the end of restrictions things are a lot less clear. What was going to be “Freedom Day” seems to have become the end of restrictions and the start of “Common Sense Day”. While the legal restrictions are being removed it is being left up to organisations to decide for themselves what measures are appropriate for the safety of staff and customers. It is being left up to individuals to decide when it is necessary to wear a face mask or maintain social distancing. It feels a bit scary as we have been told what to do for so long but we have come through the worst of the pandemic and let’s pray that people use their common sense to stay safe. As an organisation the church also has a responsibility to those who work for it and also to those who volunteer and worship or even simply visit the buildings. The church nationally will be evaluating the new situationwith advice from the national government and we await the churches advice and guidance. In the meantime we will have to apply a little common sense ourselves. Peace and blessings Richard
