Two brief notices to keep you all up to speed with fast changing events:
- In light of the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have today (17th March 2020) issued a statement which you can read in full here. Fundamentally, it calls for two things: firstly, a suspension of public worship, which for many of us has perhaps been the mainstay of our lives as Christians; and secondly, for a creative response – that worship may continue, that we may not stop growing in our faith, and that others might come to know the love of God. Please do pray for all the leaders in our churches in the Deanery as we all journey together into unknown territory, and partner with them in bringing Christ Jesus to the people of East Hertfordshire.
- The Parishes of St John the Baptist Great Amwell with St Mary St Margarets and St Andrew Stanstead Abbots are delighted to announce that the Revd Dr Sarah Forrest will be joining us all in our mission to Live God’s Love in our Deanery as the new Priest-in-Charge in their Benefice. Please pray for Sarah, her family and the three churches as they all prepare for a new chapter of ministry.
