Dear Congregation and Friends of St Mary,
Please find attached the Benefice Newsletter for Sunday and associated documents from Lucy.
Hopefully you will also have seen my earlier e-mail that contained the latest COVOD-19 update from the Diocese. In line with the guidance that it contained, I have conducted a first draft risk assessment for St Mary Longcot. As a result, and in agreement with both Norma and Canon Paul, we have decided to cancel the service of morning prayer that was due to take place in St Mary on Sunday 3rd January. This change in plan has been reflected in the latest Benefice Newsletter.
In the coming week we will be consulting with the members of the Parochial Church Council and will be refining the risk assessment. Should anyone else wish to contribute to the assessment, then please e-mail me before the end of day Wednesday 6th January and we will take your comments into account.
In the meantime, please find a link to the Benefice Facebook page where you can find our online services: https://www.facebook.com/shrivenhamandashbury/
