Visit to Ven Gardens

On behalf of the PCC, thank you to everyone who went to Ven gardens on Friday 20th August.  
48 of us attended, enjoyed excellent hospitality, and enjoyed finding out something about what it is to run a garden to the extent that is Ven.

You will be delighted to know that £480 was donated.  This has been shared between our church and, at the request of Charles and Mike, MP Primary School.  Rebecca Eyres, the Head, has asked that the congregation be thanked for this generous donation.

St John’s Church and the relaxing of Covid Restrictions from 19th..

Following the lifting of most restrictions in England, our churches have been encouraged to review our risk assessments and to continue to be cautious in protecting each other, especially the most vulnerable. We are aware that there appears to be another significant wave of Covid infections affecting the country including our own area of Somerset. The principles we are working to are that we want to be sensitive to the views of others, protect everyone and to continue to open our worship to all with confidence and joy.

I have met with our PCC and we have agreed that we need to take personal responsibility for our actions and take care towards others.

For the present, whilst not mandatory, we will encourage and ask people to:

  • Maintain the use of face coverings whilst moving around the building
  • Maintain the use of hand sanitiser on entering church
  • Spread out in church so that some social distancing is maintained for those that need it.
  • Avoid attending services if feeling unwell or with any of the possible symptoms of Covid

We have set the maximum capacity of the building for the moment at 120 people.  This is for all services, including baptisms, weddings, funerals and memorial services.

Singing in church can now be cautiously resumed.  Our choir will be back to full strength and the congregation is also allowed to sing. We will reintroduce this gradually, singing one hymn together at the end of the service.  For the time being we will continue to offer Communion in one kind (bread only) and not return to sharing the common cup.

Decisions on risk assessments remain the joint responsibility of the churchwardens, PCCs and clergy. 

Thank you for helping us keep each other safe.

Rev Sarah
