National guidelines for services are evolving at the moment and arrangements are subject to change.
Please observe the usual health precautions and follow the guidelines displayed in the building.
If you are watching on Sunday morning, why not join us for tea, coffee and conversation after service at 11 am (you have to provide the coffee, sadly!) with access from our Facebook Page . You DON'T need to join facebook to access this, just find the service by scrolling down and then follow the links).
This week's Evening Service is available as a podcast Here. On the evening of Lammas ("Loafmass") Sunday, Mike and Lesley lead the service from beside a field of Breconshire Wheat, with noises off from Welsh breeze and wildlife. There are Bible Readings, a reflection and prayers for Lammas.

Baptisms, and Weddings
Weddings in church are now possible, subject to guidelines. We anticipate Baptisms will be possible again very soon. We will post notification here and more widely as guidance becomes clear. Please do get in touch if you wish to discuss this aspect.
Funerals are still possible but subject to very strict guidance. The local funeral directors will help and advise where appropriate, and you are welcome to contact us too. The funeral may consist of a very small gathering of mourners in church or at the graveside (no more than ten is suggested). The normal visit by a member of the clergy is not possible at the moment, and so our pre-funeral conversation would be by phone. Email is also possible where folk have, for example, hearing difficulties.
However, when restrictions on public worship are lifted, we will be very happy to offer in Church a much larger scale Memorial Service and or Celebration of the life of the person who has died. Clearly we do not yet know when that will be possible. Again, do get in touch if you wish to talk to us about this, or just for a chat following death of a loved one.
Staying in touch
If you would welcome a chat, we are more than happy to provide any support we can by 'phone. In this case please email us stating your 'phone number on Team Ministry Office (our part time office) or email@example.com and we will give you a ring. Alternatively, if you have no access to email, you can ring our emergency line 07821-936301 and leave a message. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
With our prayers and good wishes in these difficult days,
The Revd Prebendary Michael Kneen Team Rector of Leominster Bishop's Surrogate for Marriages
