‘Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.’
We are celebrating the season of God’s manifestation to us, and we pray that you may continue to know that light however dark the times. January has also brought a national lockdown: however government regulations permit public worship, and open churches for personal prayer, to continue. We rejoice that this essential spiritual recourse is available to us. However be assured that we are acting with continued, and renewed, vigilance in our adherence to COVID-secure regulations and cleaning regimens, and we thank everyone who attends Deanery services for their own vigilance. Please do not feel under any sense of obligation to attend in person if you feel vulnerable and unsafe. We continue to offer all our daily services from St James streamed online as well as our Zoom Praying with…sessions. All details are available in the Parish Notes. Our Pastoral Care Network continues to operate, including the work of the Food Bank at the Trinity Centre (open Mon-Fri, 9-10am), pharmacy deliveries and pastoral contact calls from our volunteers. If you know anyone in need of these services please contact the Trinity Centre, Arabella or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The communities that make up our Deanery are constantly in our prayers.
