Online Services during the COVID 19 period.

Great success has been achieved using our Online Services facility during the weeks of the Lockdown period. (See the Welcome page for further details and how to access them.) For our Sunday 9.30 communion services we have been averaging between 50 and 70 participants. The midweek services on Wednesdays (BCP Communion) and Thursdays (Morning Prayer) have also achieved good attendance. The introduction of the ‘Hall of Friends’ on Tuesdays has also proved popular for many to catch up with the latest happenings both in the Church family and the community.

A ‘Salute to Caring’ garden in Just 14 days

Thanks to an initiative by Roland Carpenter and an excellent effort by willing volunteers

a magnificent garden was created to restore the previous one buried by the recent building

work near the south porch of St. Peter’s Church. This will be dedicated to all the carers both

professional and volunteer in whatever capacity following the Covid-19 epedemic.

It was dedicated at a short service held on Sunday 5th. July at 3.00 pm at St. Peter’s.  A more

complete event will be planned when Covid 19 regulations permit and include some of our

local carers and helpers from our ‘Sharing in Sharnbrook’ scheme.

Julian Armitage, Janet Norman, Roger Wiltshire and Mark Hedges assist with the

hard work to complete the garden shown bottom right. The Top photos show the

short service of Dedication on the 5th. July with just a few supporting.

We also hosted for the Deanery an Ascension Day evening Communion on 21st. May when the Rural Dean and other clergy from the deanery assisted with Readings and Intercessions.
Above: About half of our congregation on the Fifth Sunday after Trinity on 12th. July when Rev. Nick led the service and Fr. Mac preached the sermon.  The Intercessions were led by Rev. Lionel and the readers were Janet Welsh & Ken Shrimpton.
