  • Sunday Services in September and October 2020

    In September and October 2020 the following are planned:

    Sunday 20th September 11am Farlam Church: Holy Communion (Revd Janice Murray)

    Sunday 4th October 11am Farlam Church: Holy Communion (Revd Janice Murray)

    Sunday 18th October 11am Farlam Church: Morning Prayer (Revd Edward Johnsen) Followed by APCM.

    Please let Edward the Vicar know (see Get in touch button) if you intend to come to any of these services so we can have an idea of numbers. While the services will be quite brief and simple, and among other restrictions there can be no singing, it will be lovely to see everyone who can make it - all are welcome. To make the services as safe as possible arrangements will be in place to enable 2 metre social distancing, and everyone attending will be asked to use the hand sanitiser by the entrances on entry and exit. Masks are mandatory. In services of Holy Communion communion will be offered 'in one kind' only (ie only the bread).

    Every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 11 a.m. for 1 minutes
