Church News and Prayer Communication

Dear All
I know many of you will be wrestling with this new development, both personally and professionally, as we work out the best course of action.
AS far as the Diocese of Leicester is concerned, I think it good that you all see the bishop is very understanding of the dilemmas we are facing the moment. As I read it, as the churches and parishes of Cosby and Whetstone are outside the new restricted area we may continue with our plans for Sunday to begin public worship. But I felt it right to wait before we heard from the bishop before we could be confident in proceeding. It bears reiteration of course that no-one should feel under any obligation whatsoever to attend, especially if you are in one of the vulnerable groups. We will start small and gradually increase our confidence in handling a sensitive situation.
Please note that worship will begin on Sunday with a 9.30 service. For the time being there will be no 9.15 service on Wednesdays but this will be kept under revue.
Let us pray for one another and especially those who are ill in our City and County and those looking after them.
