5th Sunday after Trinity, 12th July 2020

Church Open for public worship

Our first Sunday Service in church will take place this weekend, Sunday 12th July. We are limited to 30 people so if you would like to go, and you haven’t already done so, you must either sign up via our website homepage stmarysmonkseaton.org.uk or ring the office beforehand and leave a message on 0191 251 4216. If there are still places available we will add you to the list and let you know.

Don't be shy or polite! There are still spaces for Sunday; if you want to come, sign up!

You can now sign up each week by visiting our website between 12 noon Sunday and 12 noon Saturday. If you find you have forgotten to do this, then please still get in touch and we will fit you in if there are still spaces available.

This has been thought about carefully and there are various protective measures in place to make the building as safe as possible.  On entering church there will be notices displayed with guidance and advice.  Please read and do your best to follow them. We ask that everyone observes social distancing and stays 2 meters apart. Face coverings can be worn along with anything else that makes you feel protected.

You will be able to bring your Planned Giving envelopes to the service.

We had hoped to ‘Live Stream’ this service so more people at home could join in. Unfortunately, due to our broadband speed being inadequate, we are unable to do this.

A recording of the service will be available to view from 12 noon on Sunday. Having put a request for a broadband upgrade into action it is hoped that we will be able to go ahead with the Live Streaming next week. We are really sorry we haven’t been able to coordinate this with our first service.

The church will continue to be open on Wednesdays 10am – 12 noon, for Private Prayer but not on Saturdays. This is to allow for cleaning between church uses.

The office is not accessible in person, but Dot and Carol are still working from home and can be reached via email and phone. If you wish to leave any correspondence then please post it through the north door. Thank you for your patience during these very different times.


Goodbye Sue

Sue Morgan has now stepped down as our organist. Sue and Adrian’s wedding has now been postponed to Friday 4th September. We wish Sue every blessing as she leaves her organist role here at St Mary’s and our love and best wishes are sent to Sue and Adrian as they approach their new wedding date.
