Dear all

Worship this week:

9.30am - Eucharist at Chieveley

11.00am - Holy Communion at Farnborough

6.00pm - Evening Prayer at Peasemore

We will be operating under fairly tight conditions and in order to help with planning and logistics for these services it would be useful if you could please let me know by email if you are intending to join us. Please also note the requirements to wear face coverings in church.

Also, this Sunday there will be a recorded Holy Communion service, this week from St Mary's, Chieveley. As previously the video will be live from 8.30am on Sunday morning, streaming from that time and then available at any time later for you to use in your devotions. The videos for all benefice services can be found on the benefice website, YouTube, and Facebook. As always, subtitles will be available.

Next week there will be three onsite services:

9.30am Eucharist at Beedon
11.00am Eucharist at Stockcross
11.00am Eucharist at Boxford

Watch this space for further announcements about services .

Finally, the APRIL issue of the Benefice Magazine is available here.

Please do still encourage others to keep in touch with what is going on by signing up to these updates just cut and paste the link to them in an email:

Very importantly, if there are any people who you know would like a hard copy of this then please print it off for them or let me know, and I’ll take care of it.
