Online Services during the COVID 19 period.

Great success has been achieved using our Online Services facility during the weeks of the COVID 19 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. On Remembrance Sunday (8th. November) we had a special non communion service and invited people from the community to participate with readings, poems etc.  We included the Roll call of those that were lost in the two world wars from all our three parishes, including Knotting. It was well received and around 100 people participated.

      Acts of Remembrance in the  Benefice

Despite the COVID 19 Restrictions, we were able to perform our usual ceremonies at our

three War Memorials this year. In Sharnbrook the invited smaller socially distanced gathering

initially met at the ‘Tommy and Memorial seat, where a short prayer was said before the

procession to the Churchyard and War Memorial’

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.

Following prayers read by our

‘Churches Together’ members,

representatives of The British

Legion, our Parish Council and

village uniformed organisations

laid their wreaths. Rev. Nick

Munday officiated at this service.
