Although wearing a face covering indoors is no longer mandatory, we would encourage you to exercise discretion, especially in larger services or smaller churches. Please respect the concerns of others in the congregation, and continue to observe social distancing where possible.
We will continue to provide hand sanitiser at entry and exit points and ensure our buildings are clean and well ventilated.

If you would like a home visit, do let us know.

The following churches are open daily for private prayer: St Andrew Shrivenham, St Thomas Watchfield, St James Bourton, St Mary the Virgin Ashbury, St Swithun Compton Beauchamp and St Mary the Virgin Longcot.

Rev'd Norma Fergusson's Sermon for Sunday 14th August

Norma reflects on the fact that the words of Jesus are not always as comfortable as we might hope or expect.


Distribution of the Sacraments at Communion Services

Care is still being advised at the distribution of the sacraments and if you do not wish to receive in both kinds (i.e. to share the common cup as well as receiving the bread) please feel free to do that.
We will continue the practice of wearing masks and using hand sanitiser during the prayers of consecration and the distribution. This will also apply to lay administrators of the cup. The rim of the cup will be cleaned after each communicant has received.
Intinction by communicants is not recommended and we will not be offering this, but we will keep the matter under review. Please talk to Norma if you have any questions.

Please note that there are no services at Bourton, St James during August.

There will be no 9am online services on Tuesdays and Thursdays during August.
