Whittington Church


**Parish Magazine – July & August 2020**

Coronavirus – Covid – 19

In the light of Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued advice that public worship should be suspended. Consequently there have been no services at Whittington.

The Worcester South East Team of clergy introduced ways to continue serving the needs of our parishes and put together a schedule of online services via Zoom for each week, to which everyone is very welcome. For an invitation to join in and the necessary code please contact Revd Andy Stand andy.stand@sky.com Please try and arrive in the meeting 5-10
minutes before it is due to start. The pattern looks like this:

Monday – Friday Morning Prayer at 8.30 a.m. Compline at 8.30 p.m. Please email mbunclark@tiscali.co.uk
Wednesday 10.00 a.m. Midweek Holy Communion (said)
Sunday 10.00 a.m. Holy Communion (with hymns) or Service of the Word
Liturgy to print is only available for the midweek and Sunday services. For the other services, the host has the liturgy on their computer and shares their screen with you so that
you can join in with the service.
The Team Office at St Martin’s is closed to visitors but can still be reached by phone: 01905 358083 or email: WorcesterSouthEastTeamOffice@gmail.com
For Pastoral Support please contact the Vicar, Revd Andy Stand, on 01905 358150 andy.stand@sky.com
The church building now reopens for private prayer on Sunday afternoons from 2.30-3.30.
The parish magazine is available free on the church website.

We look forward to having you join us for worship. Please take time to explore the website and, more especially, to visit us in person. We know it can be very difficult to pluck up the courage to walk into a new church for the first time, especially if you haven’t been to church for a while. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable amongst us. Come to the Great Yew Brew and meet us informally first if you prefer.

Our sidesmen and/or any of our parishioners will be happy to give you as much, or as little, assistance as you desire. Your children are always welcome in our services.

If you have any queries or wish to arrange a baptism or wedding (funerals are normally arranged through the funeral director) please contact, in the first instance, the Team Administrator, Rebecca Caskie. at the Parish Office at St. Martin’s Church (corner of London Road and Victoria Avenue, Worcester.) The church can comfortably seat 100 (max 120) people.

The Parish Magazine is published 10 times a year (annual subscription £5) and distributed into the local community. If you would like to receive the Magazine please use the Contact e-mail facility within this website.
