St Andew’s Claxton*    


Dear All,

I hope your day has begun well.
Today marks the re-opening of services in church in our benefice, beginning with morning prayer at Surlingham, 10am. The order of service is attached here morning prayer 12.7.20 (1) and also forms the basis of this week’s video service, filmed at Claxton Church. :
Unfortunately, Zoom Happy Hour has been cancelled, as Helen’s mother is unwell and we are travelling to Anglesey to support her and care for Helen’s father.
Next Sunday’s benefice service will be held at Rockland St. Mary, 10am. Please e-mail or leave a message on 01508 508014 if you wish to attend.
Best wishes,
Nick and Helen

Play area now open!


Please follow current Government advice regarding Covid 19

Users of the play area do so at their own risk

We recommend no more than 6 people should be within the fenced play area at any time

Keep your distance – 2 metres from any other user

Wash your hands and/or use sanitiser before and after using the play equipment

Please take your rubbish home

Stay safe and enjoy your visit!

We are concerned that the No Dogs notices at each gate have been removed from the play area on a number of occasions. You should not be walking your dog through the play area because it is reserved for children, and nobody wants children playing where dogs might have been fouling.

Trinity IV, Zoom serice & church openings

IMG_7245Dear All,

We hope your day is going well. We’ve attached today’s Morning Prayer order of service here
Trin 4 Rock Ben 20, and here’s the link for the video
We have another engagement this afternoon, so in place of this week’s Happy Hour, there will be a service of Night Prayer at 8.00pm – a peaceful way to end Sunday. Please e-mail or ring us on 01508 538014 if you would like a Zoom invitation.
Two more of our churches are opening for private prayer this week, which means that between 10am and 5pm you can visit on the following days:
Tuesdays         Rockland
Wednesdays   Surlingham
Saturdays        Claxton
We’ll keep you posted about further re-openings.
From today, churches can open for public worship following new guidelines. We’re planning to hold a weekly benefice service from next Sunday onwards. There will be a morning service at Surlingham Church on July 12th at 10.00am. Due to social distancing rules, there will be a limited number of places, so please would you let us know if you wish to attend. If there are a large number of people coming, we will arrange a second service there, beginning at 11.15am.
Your prayers and support as we enter this new phase are greatly appreciated.
Best wishes,
Nick and Helen
