PUBLIC WORSHIP RESUMES AT ST NICHOLAS KEYINGHAM

Although it will be some time before we are back to normal, we are cautiously resuming a limited number of services in the Benefice, in accordance with the current lockdown regulations. You can see what is planned on the Services  page. Note that some services are provisional and changes may occur at short notice.
The Church of England Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Churches web page is regularly updated and may be useful for guidance as the situation develops.         

ANNUAL MEETING

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting for St Nicholas Keyingham will be held at 2pm on Monday 24th May in the Church. Those entitled to attend include all persons who are on the electoral roll of the parish. We will continue to follow safe distancing and general hygiene protocols and ask that you wear a face covering whilst inside the church unless medically exempt. We will be very glad to see you.

CHILDREN'S SOCIETY BOXES

A reply has now been received from The Children's Society regarding box collection in 2021. They intend to send out the relevant documentation and request for collection at some point after Easter. If your box is in need of emptying, bring it to church, the contents will be paid in and recorded, and the box will be returned to you. Alternatively, leave a message using the Contact page, and it can be collected.
