Covid19 - the impact on our churches and congregations.
Our churches have reopened for public worship, although we are only able to hold short, spoken services - and we keep the doors open so make sure you wrap up warm. Please do contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01432 353717 to let us know which service you intend to attend so that we can arrange a safe seating plan.
As we work within the regulations to offer worship safely, our pattern of services in church will inevitably change and evolve. Please check here or in the Newsletter to check times and venues. We will continue to stream a Communion Service from one of our churches at 9:30am each week. These can be found on our Facebook pages and our YouTube channel. An audio version is also available for download from this page, or can be heard by 'phoning 01432 806066. The order of service is available on this page or can be sent our by post or email along with our weekly newsletter. Please email or 'phone the office to be added to the circulation list.
The Team Office at St Martin's in Ross Road is staffed every weekday morning. The office is open to visitors by appointment - please 'phone to schedule on 01432353717.
If you have names that you would like us to remember in prayer, or know of people who are in need that we might be able to help, please call us on 01432353717, text 07864938898 or email email@example.com
St Martin's is open for private prayer by appointment on Monday to Thursday - please call the office to arrange.
With prayers for your safety and well-being,

Both of the Harvest Communion Services, at St Martin's and St Peter's, will be held out of doors, so please dress appropriately. Harvest gifts, suitable for Hereford Foodbank https://herefordfoodbank.co.uk/make-a-donation, will be welcomed. If you intend to attend any of our services in Church, please call 01432 353717 or email to let us know, so that we can manage the distancing restrictions safely. Please bring a face covering to wear in Church.
To listen to an audio version of the Communion service, call 01432 806066 after 9:30am on Sunday – the service will be available for the whole week. This will cost you the same per minute as a local ‘phone call. There is a message and then some silence before the service starts – don’t panic, if you have heard the message then the service will start before long.
This week's 10am Harvest Communion from St Martin's will be live streamed on St Martin's Facebook Page and made available on our Youtube channel and the St Peter's Facebook page shortly afterwards.

As you can imagine, I'm sure, this has beeb a very difficult time for our Church community and one of the challenges we face is the loss of earnings as donations, fees and hall rental income have fallen considerably. If you are able to support the work of our Churches and make a donation we would be very grateful.
Donations can be made online using the button below, or through the team office. Thank you for your help.
