Vicars newsletter for 7th June

Dear all,
Contained in this email is the link for our Trinity Sunday Benefice service and the latest news for the Hertford Benefice as well as news about Archbishop Sentamu's final day in office tomorrow.
We have no further information about the timing of any further relaxation in respect of private prayer and public acts of worship in our churches. Preparations do, however, continue at both national and local levels in readiness for the phased reopening of our church buildings when that is both permitted and safe to do. Information is being supplied about how to prepare our church buildings for the time when they can be opened up.

Four installments will be presented as audio versions on the Sunday Breakfast Show with Jonathan Cowap on successive weekends from June 7.
