The Holtwood Minister and Stewards’ Team met last night and, because of continuing Coronavirus restrictions, reluctantly decided to cancel our ‘Carols around the Tree’ evening on 20th December. But the good news is that instead at 6.00 there will be a pre-recorded traditional carol service streamed from Verwood on Facebook. And that’s not all! A Nativity Service, with the cast drawn from Holtwood and Verwood Methodist Churches, will be streamed at 10.45 that morning. And that’s still not all! The further good news is that (subject to Covid restrictions and technical issues being OK) we’re hoping to hold ‘live’ services, which will also be streamed, from Holtwood (in the church itself) beginning with our Covenant Service on 10th January at 10.45. More details to follow but we’re aiming to use the Methodist Church ‘Extended Communion’ protocol. Watch this space for more details in the coming weeks!
