This year we are holding a simplified version of Holiday at Home. There will be the usual craft activities, indoor games, entertainment and fish/chicken and chips lunch. This year instead of each day being different, the same or similar programme will take place on both days. In the interest of keeping everyone as safe as possible, keeping numbers manageable, and continuing to observe social distancing, people should attend on only one of the two days of Holiday at Home . There are more places on Thursday 5th August than 4th August which is nearly full.
To register please contact Bill and Barbara Birmingham on 01753 548646 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. For catering purposes, please register, if possible, by Monday, 2nd August. Please provide the following information:
- Phone number or email address
- Which day you want to attend.
- Your preference for a Fish or Chicken dinner.
Sunday, 8th August, 11:00 a.m., St. Mary’s, The Rev. Gill Lovell, our Archdeaconry Parish Development Officer, has agreed to come and celebrate Holy Communion. This will not be a streamed or Zoomed service.
Sunday, 29th August, 6.30 pm at St. Mary’s Church. A choral evensong is planned for Sunday, 29th August, 6.30pm, to be followed by light refreshments and a short musical session. As we were not able to say farewell to Robin and Juliet as a Parish before they left Langley, except on Zoom, this would be an opportunity for us to bid them farewell physically. Robin will be bringing along his icon of ‘The Visitation’ that we presented him with. More details nearer the time.
Wednesday, 1st September, 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s. Bishop Alan will license Rev Chris Ferris. Please pray for Chris and his family as they prepare to join us.
