Praying throughout Lockdown
If you have heard the bells ringing every evening since the start of lockdown Mark Two, at St John’s, Hale, and St George’s, Badshot Lea, and have wondered what is going on, the answer is that this is part of a call to prayer. The archbishops and bishops are calling on everyone to pray at 6pm every day throughout lockdown and churches each to ring a single bell at the same time. Find out more here.
Churches open for prayer
During this second lockdown the churches are closed for services, however two of our churches are open for private prayer: St George’s, Badshot Lea, is open on a Tuesday and a Saturday, and St John’s is open on a Thursday and a Sunday. Both will be open 9am-4pm.

Lockdown
From Thursday the government have announced that the churches will close for Services but they may open for private prayer until December 2nd.
Month of Prayer
The Archbishops, in consultation with the House of Bishops, decided that during lockdown we would have a month of prayer. This call would take the form of an invitation to every Christian and person of good will to pray at 6pm every day, beginning this Thursday 5 November for the period of this present lock-down. In order to stimulate this time of prayer, where it is possible, churches are encouraged to ring a single bell at 6pm. The Archbishops promised some resources in the form of different styles of written prayers with a particular thematic focus for prayer each day. The weblink to the resources is https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches/call-prayer-nation. In addition, please find here a direct link to a simple printable prayer booklet  – Prayer Booklet.

This month, as we deal with lockdown and all that this means, we remember and give thanks for those who served and sacrificed themselves in times of war. Our commemorations are mostly online this year but they are as important as ever.

We also look at ways of reducing our waste, hear from local MP Jeremy Hunt and welcome a new PCC. There’s Christmas shopping to do in our online art and craft fair, and the villages will be lit up by beacons on November 14, bringing hope and light.

Plus give to Project Wenceslas and help tackle fuel poverty and pop an extra pudding or two in your shopping order to give to the Foodbank. Oh, and get a cat…
