Good news! I feel like the Archangel Gabriel, in that I bring you good news….St Cyr’s church will be open from this Sunday, August 2nd for weekly worship -resuming its usual pattern of Evensong at 6pm on the 1st and 3rd Sundays and Holy Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 11:10am. The Church of England are strongly recommending that face coverings be worn in church; 2m physical distance will be observed in Church; hand sanitisers will be used on entry and when taking Communion; there will be no singing and only bread will be taken in Communion. We understand that there will be those who are feel unable to join us and so live streamed services from St Georges or Zoom services will remain available on our YouTube channel- ‘St George’s Cam and St Cyr’s Stinchcombe’ or on Facebook pages – under ‘St George’s Cam.’ The service can also be listened to down the phoneline -ask Fiona for details.
More Good news I bring! The beautiful organ at St Cyr’s circa 1894 is being restored. This is being funded from church funds, local benefactors and from grants. It will be so wonderful to hear the organ back to its former glory from the beginning of September. During the time that this work is being carried out, the church will be closed apart from weekly worship on a Sunday.
My thanks to all those who have worked hard both to get the church open and also towards the organ restoration.
With kind regards,
Rev’d Fiona Crocker
