Message from Rev Phil Goodey
Dear Friends and Church Family Members
It is with reluctance that I have decided to close St Peter’s Church and Christ Church buildings until the end of January, when we will review the situation.
I have spoken with many people across both congregations and we are in agreement that, given the proportion of vulnerable people, coupled with the high rate of infection in the South East, we are even more at risk than at any other time during the last year. The vaccine is being distributed now and, hopefully, in a few weeks, if we are patient and stay strong, we will be able to meet together safely.
There will continue to be a variety of online services each week via Zoom and YouTube – so if you can join in with them, please do. You can also stay in touch via Phone, Text, WhatsApp, Facebook and Email, and we will let you know what is happening as soon as decisions are made. Please don’t forget to let people know who are not comfortable using social media so that our church family can continue to support one another in this challenging time.
Funerals will continue to take place in church, when needed.
Be patient, Keep praying, and hold fast to Jesus who says to his disciples (us).
“Know that I am with you always even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)
