As your new Priest in Charge (Interim) I write to share with you some of my hopes and plans for our future together, and at the same time be honest about our current financial status.
Our new interim Priest-in-Charge, Fr Paul Blanch, introduces himself and, hopefully, you will see him around and in church very soon. It is hoped that this letter will be seen by as many people as possible in the parish and further afield. If you know of anyone who does not have access to the internet or does not have an email address perhaps you would kindly pass a copy of Fr Paul’s letter to them.
Coronavirus update: Our next Mass will be on Wednesday 2 December when we will start again with Morning Prayer at 9:00 followed by Mass at 9:30. The church is open for private prayer only on Wed & Sundays between 10 and 11 am.
It is lovely to be able to tell you that we shall be reopening St Andrew’s from Sunday 12 July 2020. This decision has been made following a meeting of the PCC on Saturday 4 July, where we discussed the advice and guidance we have received this week and the procedures we should adopt in order to comply. We shall start with one service a week and this will be a Low Mass at 10 o’clock on Sundays only. We may in future weeks extend this to a Wednesday morning mass as well.
Note: The period of consultation has now passed. The Faculty is to reopen a Quatrefoil above the stained glass window on the south wall of the Sanctuary which was blown out by bomb blast during WW2 and was just bricked
