Easter Services 2021

We are delighted to welcome the Revd Simon Pritchard as our Priest-in-Charge and look forward to working with him and the ministry team from the Stamford Bridge Group.  

At this time we are looking to open the church for public worship on Easter Sunday, 4th April, with Parish Communion at 11am.  There will still be covid secure measures in place with social distancing, masks required etc and it is preferable for people to book a place.  If you would like to attend please contact me. If you had a regular seat booked before Christmas, then don’t worry, your place is saved unless you let me know otherwise!

We are still finalising details for the rest of the services, but it is likely that in church services will then follow a pattern of Communion Services alternating with Come and Worship Services each Sunday at 11am, online services via zoom every Sunday at 6pm and Thursday evenings at 7pm, please contact stevepercival@hotmail.co.uk for details. 

We are still working on the possibilities of 8am Services.  We are also very aware that many of you do not yet feel ready to return and that is absolutely fine, please stay safe and be reassured that you are still held in our love and prayers.  

For those of you that serve on the various rotas, I hope to get these out to you as soon as we have more definitive details.  If you would like to add your name to any of the rotas for welcoming, sidespersons, reading, intercessions, flower rota or refreshments (once they are allowed), please do let me know.

Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting will be held via zoom on Monday 19th April at 7.30pm. If you would like a copy of our financial reports etc please contact Diane.  If you have an interest in supporting our church we do have volunteer roles we are looking to fill, particularly a representative for the Deanery Synod.  We would also welcome new members to the PCC and a Foundation Governor for the school.  Please do contact us if you would like to know more.  

We are also delighted that our new website is now up and running at www.stjohnthebaptistchurchwilberfoss.co.uk where there is a wealth of information and up to date notices.  

On a personal note, I would like to add that I will be stepping down as Churchwarden at the APCM on 19th April.  It has been a wonderful privilege to serve as your Warden for the last 16 years and it has been full of the most joyous moments alongside some truly difficult times, but now it is time for a break, for some restorative time with God and an opportunity for a new team to take the Parish on a fresh journey with Christ at their heart.  I thank all of you for your loving, prayerful support, I cannot express how much I have appreciated and valued it and I really hope we can all be together again soon!

Best Wishes

Diane Dawson
