Vicar's Newsletter for 16 May

Dear all,
Four of the benefice churches have services on Sunday. Details below.
Adherence to the strictly applied Covid-safe rules will be required by all who attend including wearing of mask*, gelling hands on entry and exit, staying 2m apart and not mingling inside church. Up to 6 people may now meet socially distanced outside.  (*unless medically exempt)
Please note that the online service this Sunday will be available in one file.
Please see new instructions below.  We now have an increased file capacity available, so we are hoping your listening experience will be improved this week. Thank you.
Please do get in touch with me if you have any questions or just to have a chat. 
Prerecorded Audio Service on Sunday 16th May:  You can now find the service and songs with the sound file. * It was recorded in church last Sunday 9th May so you receive it a week late.
SUNDAY 16th May AUDIO SERVICE -  You will find the service in one file.

Then the song words and order of service are available to be clicked with the sound file.

Previous weeks' services now remain available.

A reminder that names of those attending collective worship must be recorded and kept for 21 days for the Test and Trace system. Face coverings are now required by law to be worn in places of worship. Congregational singing is still not permitted.
I will forward the latest York Diocesan Journal to those on the mailing list.


God our loving Father, you have called your Church into being in your love and strengthened us for your service. Guide and inspire us as we seek to re-shape our approach to mission and ministry in our diocese; that we may be a joyful Church of missionary disciples, one in heart and mind; for the sake of your kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

During this latest lockdown churchwarden Venetia Wrigley has kindly offered to open up St. Nicholas Church for private prayer by appointment at a time convenient to both parties. Venetia explains: "I will open the church 10 minutes before the appointed time, wipe down the door handle, ensure that a pew is wiped ready, leave the church, wait in my car until the prayer session is over and then return to church and wipe everything down again including the door handle and relock the building."
If you would like to avail yourself of this offer, please call Venetia on her mobile no.  07773 217372 

If for any reason you prefer not to be included in this mailing please just send me an email and I will remove yours from the list. Many thanks. 
Every blessing,

Revd Tim Parker
