Thanksgiving and Remembrance, Sunday 1st November
at 3:00pm AT all Saints and via Zoom
Our churches are back open for worship!
Sunday in-Church joint service worship has moved to St Barnabas, Purley for October (Wednesday remains at All Saints)
Throughout September, our in-church services at All Saints, warmly welcomed worshippers from both parishes. Sunday services have now moved to St Barnabas, Purley for October, but the Wednesday services will remain at All Saints.
Places are limited and must be booked in advance. The services will be as follows:
10am Eucharist on Sunday Mornings (St Barnabas, Purley)
11am Holy Communion on Wednesday Mornings (All Saint’s Kenley)
You can book via Eventbrite - see our web page here. For those without the internet, please call the Parish Office who will be happy to take your booking.
These are in addition to our weekly Sunday morning service on Zoom, and our daily Monday to Friday Morning and Night Prayer, and The Lord’s Prayer at 1pm, held via Facebook.
Our Covid-secure guidelines remain in place, in order to assure social distancing:
• Masks are compulsory, unless exempt, and there are plenty of hand sanitisers
• There is music (but no singing) and everything is relayed via PowerPoint and a screen, so no paper service booklets.
• Holy Communion is received as the wafer (the Host) alone and there are no after-service refreshments.
Churchwardens have undertaken a thorough risk assessment of each building and numbers have been limited according to the space available, ensuring a safe space to worship together.
Please be assured that there is no rush to return to the church buildings if you feel uneasy or uncertain. We are planning on taking small steps into this new way of worshipping God, with patience and trust in him to lead us forwards into the future.

Meanwhile, some longer-established Food Hub volunteers have been back to see for themselves the new ways of working introduced as a result of the pandemic, with a view to rejoining session rotas from the autumn. To arrange a visit, please email Jean Ludlow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, we thank you for keeping the Food Hub’s volunteers and clients in your thoughts and prayers, while continuing to praise God for His wonderful provision and blessings.
