St Luke's Anglican Church in Enmore a lively, inclusive welcoming liturgical community

Notices — Sunday 19th July 2020

NOTICES:

Today: Par­ish Coun­cil meets after morn­ing tea.

 

SOCIAL DISTANCING: At St Luke’s we can only meet as a con­greg­a­tion on con­di­tion that we adhere to social dis­tan­cing require­ments.  That means wherever pos­sible keep­ing at a dis­tance of 1.5m from those not in your house­hold.  As a rule of thumb, you are at a dis­tance of 1.5m from anoth­er per­son if you can­not touch each oth­er with an out­stretched hand.  To help us main­tain social dis­tan­cing, we ask that you observe the fol­low­ing:

 

1/ Please sit only where you find a green dot.   An ush­er may on occa­sion guide you to your pew as the green dots become scarce.

 

2/ At the peace, greet those in your imme­di­ate vicin­ity with fol­ded hands or a nod, and refrain from mov­ing about the church

 

3/ At com­mu­nion, wait for the call from an ush­er before leav­ing your pew and main­tain a single line in the aisle, two paces behind the per­son in front of you.

 

4/ At the con­clu­sion of the ser­vice, keep mov­ing through the foy­er to avoid a build up of people wait­ing to exit. 

 

5/ At morn­ing tea be mind­ful of the need to main­tain social dis­tan­cing.  The war­dens are con­tem­plat­ing addi­tion­al meas­ures to assist with social dis­tan­cing at morn­ing tea, which will be com­mu­nic­ated in due course.

 

If you feel unwell with cold or flu-like symp­toms, please do not come to church, and we encour­age you to make use of the hand san­it­iser that is sup­plied around the church.

 

Remem­ber Mis­sion Giv­ing: The par­ish has benefited greatly from mem­bers switch­ing to elec­tron­ic giv­ing.   Thank you all again for this.  How­ever, with this change, our mis­sion giv­ing may have been neg­lected.  If this is so, you can leave your mis­sion giv­ing at the church in an envel­ope clearly marked to ABM or oth­er mis­sion agency.  The Web­site giv­ing but­ton also allows us to nom­in­ate a dona­tion to ABM as well.  In the cur­rent cir­cum­stances, our mis­sion agen­cies, like the churches, are in great­er need.  Please remem­ber to sup­port ABM and our oth­er mis­sions.

 

Next Week - Sunday School/Children’s Min­istry will resume with social dis­tan­cing and hygiene meas­ures in place.  Please come along and join us on Sunday 26th July.

 

Wed­nes­day Heal­ing Ser­vice — has resumed and is observing Cov­id-19 restric­tions re seat­ing and receiv­ing com­mu­nion.  A bib­lic­al dis­cus­sion takes place fol­low­ing morn­ing tea in the hall – all are invited.

 

Con­firm­a­tion – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August: Bp Michael Stead will be here for con­firm­a­tion.  Please keep our four Con­firmees Alex, Lucy, Nich­olas & Nam in your pray­ers.

 

Any notices for the ser­vice book­let will need to be sub­mit­ted to the Par­ish Office email by Wed­nes­day even­ing at the latest.

 

Food for our little friends — Thanks for the food scraps which are now not going to land­fill and so redu­cing the pro­duc­tion of harm­ful green­house gasses, espe­cially meth­ane.  If you would like some worm cast­ings for your garden you can leave a buck­et or bag at the rect­ory with your details.  Our little fer­til­izer factor­ies have been doing a won­der­ful job and the fruit of their labours is now avail­able.
