PUBLIC WORSHIP AT ST NICHOLAS KEYINGHAM AND ELSEWHERE IN THE BENEFICE

With the ending of Covid restrictions affecting public worship, in general in the Benefice, we are aware that Covid is still with us, and we are inclined to be cautious. If keeping our distance and wearing a face covering allows others to feel safer, we will probably choose to stay with it. Communion in both kinds is now allowed, though we recognise the danger of virus transmission, and those who prefer only to receive the bread will be given that option.

The Church of England Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Churches web page continues to be updated for guidance as the situation develops.

JUBILEE FLOWER FESTIVAL

Platinum Jubilee Flower Festival, on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th June was very well attended, culminating in the Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 5th. In view of the rainy weather, the Big Lunch took place under cover. In all, it was a most successful and enjoyable event.
