Parish churches in Ampfield, Chilworth & North Baddesley

On Friday 17th July
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]

There is more information on the survey results below, but you've encouraged us and given us a lot to work with - for which, thank you. Based on the results, Diocesan advice, and what we feel is sensible, we're starting to open up, gradually.

So, as you've hopefully heard, this Sunday's service will be streamed live from All Saints where Victoria and Andrew will lead the Communion service, attended by a few people who have pre-booked. Victoria and Andrew will then head to St Mark's for 11am where you can go to receive Communion without booking - no service will take place, but you will be invited to arrive within the hour and receive a prayer of absolution, receive Communion (in one kind) and a blessing.
If you are interested in booking to attend the service in person in future weeks, please email joinin@acnb-church.org.

The service will be on YouTube (https://youtu.be/H6oeCJEqgy4) and on the benefice website at 09:30 as usual. The order of service is available here (pdf) or as a booklet for printing (pdf, needs double sided printing). As we begin to open up, our online services will keep going: please bear with us as we work through what it means to worship in person and online!

Your parish church has not gone away. We are offering daily prayer privately. Please join us, venture deeper into spiritual communion with our Lord, and prayer for the welfare of our communities and those in health and public service.
