Whilst the COVID-19 restrictions continue, we will continue to have said rather than sung services.
Arragements for Ash Wednesday
At this year’s Ash Wednesday Service, the Minister will stand at arm’s length from the recipient’s head and sprinkle the ash lightly on each head without touching. He will have sanitised his hands and applied a face mask before the imposition of ashes begins.
We ask that those who have palm crosses from last year return them during the coming Sundays for the preparation of the ash. If convenient, it would help if crosses were returned enclosed in an envelope to avoid too much contact. There will be a plate at the back of the church to receive them.
On Palm Sunday new crosses will be placed on the seats along with the order of service.
