Update on services

After the successful relaunch of services last week, we will be holding another similar Service of the Word this coming Sunday.  For the time being services will be alternate weeks, 2nd & 4th Sundays, at 9.30 am.  We hope to start a Eucharist service soon - watch this space!  We can accommodate an absolute maximum of 25 people so we are having to limit attendance to regular members of the Nocton congregation and anyone else living in Nocton who wishes to attend.  We are very keen to open our doors fully but this will have to wait until we know it is safe.

We're back! - church is reopening!

After many weeks of being closed, All Saints Church will be reopening for public worship on Sunday 5 July. A lot of hard work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure that the building is "Covid secure" and that everyone will be safe.

There will be a short, simple and quiet service at 9.30 am. We are not yet able (allowed!) to sing and there will be no Communion and no refreshments. This service will be a trial run and there may need to be adaptations for future services.

COVID 19 precautions - please wash your hands with soap and water before you leave home and sanitise your hands as you come into church. Please keep a social distance of at least 2 metres from others. We are not specifically asking people to wear face coverings, but please feel free to do so if you wish.

If you'd like to bring a contribution for the collection, please bring it in an envelope - there'll be a basket at the back of church. If you're a tax payer and would like to gift aid your contribution, please write the following on the envelope:

- All Saints Nocton

- your full name and address, including your post code

- "Gift Aid Declaration: I would like to enhance my donation through Gift Aid. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations, it is my responsibility to pay any difference."

Your signature and the date.

We are so looking forward to being able to worship together again.
