Our plan for resuming worship at St Gabriel’s, St James’ and St Michael’s
During July and August, we will to do four things.
1. We will continue to provide a fresh Sunday Worship video each week in partnership with West Lane Baptist Church
Now accessible from the front page of our churches’ websites by a single click, and with the audio of the most recent service also accessible by a normal rate phone call 01535 286387.
2. We will continue to provide set times when the churches are open for private prayer at present:
Sundays – 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm – St Gabriel’s, Stanbury
Mondays – 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm – St Michael’s, Haworth
Wednesdays – 9.00 am to 11.00 am – St James’, Cross Roads
Fridays – 11.00 am to 1.00 pm – St Michael’s, Haworth
3. We will begin to celebrate Communion for small congregations prayerfully and safely, initially as the last half hour of the weekly prayer times
Sundays – 3.30 pm – St Gabriel’s, Stanbury – beginning 12th July
Mondays – 7.30 pm – St Michael’s, Haworth – beginning 13th July
Wednesdays – 10.30 am – St James’, Cross Roads – beginning 15th July
Fridays – 12.30 pm – St Michael’s, Haworth – beginning 17th July
4. We will work hard to plan a major re-launch of 9.30 and 11.00 Sunday worship, probably for the beginning of September when larger numbers may feel safe returning to social gatherings
We will try to involve those who have newly attended our worship over the last couple of years or who have recently engaged with our on-line worship (whether individuals or families) to help plan and take part in this, and hope we have some greater freedom with things like music by then.
