PARISH REPORT IN FAITH IN SUSSEX
We are delighted to report that we received full page coverage in the Summer edition of the Diocesan Magazine. The Magazine may be accessed here:
Restrictions have now been eased since 19th July. However, the Church Council has decided to ‘unlock’ gradually in the light of Covid 19 data in Hastings, national Church of England guidance and our risk assessment.
We have resumed the singing of the opening and last hymns but the holy communion continues to be administered in one kind.
The wearing of masks is now voluntary but we would encourage the wearing of masks during services.
