Lockdown 3 – Latest News from Holtwood

As we’re all now in the latest Covid lock-down here is the position at Holtwood over the coming weeks:-
1) Church will remain closed until mid-February at least, when the position will be again reviewed by Revd Nigel Deller and the Stewards’ Team at a Zoom Meeting scheduled for 8th February.
2) In the meantime we will continue to stream pre-recorded Services until further notice. As a new initiative for those able to join these Services on a Sunday morning, we are going to hold a virtual Tea and Coffee meeting time over the Zoom platform. This will be timed to follow the Service broadcast and we hope this will enable us to chat with one another and exchange family news, share individual concerns or needs. Joining details will be given by Ian on Facebook transmission.
3) Our Covenant Service including Holy Communion has been postponed from 10th January until 31st January. The intention is to stream this Service which Nigel will conduct from our Church where it will be recorded.
Pre-packed elements will be distributed in advance to those requesting to take part in an extended Communion in this way. There will be a notice giving details of how to request packs in the coming days and this will be on the broadcast services, e-notices this Facebook page and on our website.
4) We need to remain connected in these days, perhaps more than ever and our Pastoral Committee will be meeting via Zoom shortly to consider and review their important work.
There will be more updates here when we have more information and, in the meanwhile, do please follow the lockdown rules – and stay safe!
