Christmas Services Cancelled
In view of the recent news placing Suffolk in Tier 4 from Saturday because of the increased virulence and transmissibility of the new mutation of the Covid 19 virus, I have decided, after discussions with the churchwardens, to cancel services in the Benefice on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I am afraid that I have come to this decision with a great deal of reluctance and disappointment but I feel that I have a responsibility to try as best as we can to maintain everyone’s health and safety. I know that some of you would have felt nervous about coming and would not want to have felt that you were letting everyone down by your absence. I have to say that I have been feeling increasingly nervous too.
The churches have been beautifully decorated as they are every year, for which I am most grateful. and will remain open as usual. I shall certainly be praying for you all and I hope that you will have a chance perhaps to pop in to one of them for private prayer.
With all good wishes.Martin
