There will be Sunday Masses at 8.30am and 10.15am.
Wednesday 9.30am Mass
Social distancing and other safety measures are in place as per Church and Government guidelines. The wearing of Face Masks in church is now mandatory, so please be mindful of this.
Communion will be distributed in one kind (bread only) from a central standing station.
Those coming forward for communion or a blessing will be asked to form a single line in the main aisle, socially distanced from one another, and return to their seats via the side-aisles.
Church Rotas – as appropriate, will be re introduced.
If you do require water, please bring your own bottle.
We realise that not everyone will be able to or want to return to church yet and we do appreciate and understand this. We all need to be sensible. Remember, if you are in a vulnerable category, have a cough, cold or any symptoms, please do not come in to the church building at this time. This is for your own safety as well as the safety of others.
Both of the Sunday Masses will be ‘said’ at the moment as singing is still not permitted.

Gerald Raymond Smith
1943 – 2020

Chris, Claire and all the family wish to thank you all for your cards, messages of condolence and flowers during this sad time. They have all been overwhelmed with the love and prayers they are receiving.

A Mass of Thanksgiving for Gerald’s life will be held as soon as we are able.
Donations in Memory of Gerald are welcome. These will go towards refurbishment of the coffee bar/ area in church. Cheques made payable to St Chad’s PCC. Donation ‘Gift Aid’ envelopes for this are available at the back of church or from one of the wardens.

Photo Competition.
Entry will be £1 for each photo submitted.
All photos will be used in a special display in
church to remind us of these strange times
and the 12 best pics will be selected to
create a 2021 calendar which will be

There will also be an overall winner’.
