Sunday Worship – Holy Communion 10.00 a.m.

Although currently, for Covid safety reasons, Martin is not conducting public worship services in any church in the Benefice, each Sunday morning he is posting a video of the Holy Communion Service with readings and a short sermon, on Youtube. If you would like to join with this service, type “The Reverend Martin Percival SSC” into the Youtube search box and you will be able to access the video. Very many thanks, Martin, for preparing the videos. It is a great joy to be able to join with you in this service, even virtually.

Services are also live streamed from the Cathedral in Bury St. Edmunds. For details and times see the cathedral website: https://stedscathedral.org

Helping you through this difficult time:

Now that we have another lockdown, we want to remind everyone of the Support Scheme put in place in March.  Many of you volunteered to help others in the village who needed:
  • Shopping,
  • Collection of medicines
  • Dog walking
  • Chatting on the phone
Circumstances may have changed, so if you need to up-date or change any of your earlier offers of help please let myself or Marie know.  Thanks for all the neighbourly calls you have already made and for your continuing support.  Please also let us know if you now need help yourself. either because you are ill or having to isolate.   Do not hesitate to get in touch, as many Sweffling folk have offered help.
Thankfully Marie is happy to continue co-ordinating the scheme and we are very grateful to her for doing this.
Isolating now is very different from the Spring lockdown, so please think of others nearby who might like, for example, a chat on the phone, which might make all the difference  to a cold, dark or wet day indoors.
There are several new people in the village who might not know about this scheme.  Please feel free to forward this email to others as I do not have everyone’s address.  We won’t be sending a card from door to door this time, but I do have some spares for newcomers.
Thanks to everyone for their help and keep safe during lockdown,
Jill Abbott  663402
