Vicar's Newsletter for 20 December

Dear all,
 
Please find here the latest news for the benefice. As infection rates rise in parts of England we may potentially end up in another national lockdown. We all hope this won't be necessary. It does mean of course that all the services planned for January (see below) are provisional, based on us still being able to meet in our churches.
 
I will be sending next weekend's newsletter out on Thursday (Christmas Eve). The service available online for either Christmas Day or Sunday 27th will be a recording of this Sunday's carol service at Hunmanby.
 
Every blessing to you all for a peaceful and Christ-centred Christmas.
 
Please do get in touch with me if you have any questions or just to have a chat. 
 
Prerecorded Audio Service on Sunday 20th December:  The Fourth Sunday of Advent
This will enable you to participate in our prerecorded live AUDIO service (like a radio service). It was recorded in church last Sunday so you receive it a week late. You will also find a file attached with the hymn lyrics.
Here is the All Saints Hunmanby website link in blue for Sunday morning - The service will be available anytime on Sunday.
 
SUNDAY 20th December AUDIO SERVICE -   You will find the service in two or three parts and no need to search for worship songs as these are already included in the service.  
 
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.
