Welcome

Message from Steve our rector 17th January 2022

We we are a couple of weeks into our new year and things are beginning to look better, in our churchyard there are the very first signs of snowdrops covering the ground, even a couple of early daffodils are trying their best to come through…spring is on its way!

Here at St Nicholas we would love to welcome you into our community, whether that be in person or online and we are in the wonderful position in which we are beginning to open up all our groups again fully (though still within all the current guidelines).

Why not come just as you are and see why we live the way we do and what a difference having Jesus in your life might make?

Here is our current covid statement

First and foremost must be the request that if you, your family have any symptoms, have been told to self isolate, or have tested positive for coronavirus you stay at home.

Hand sanitisers will remain and we ask that you continue to use them as you enter and leave the building, and of course at other times you feel necessary.

To ensure a proper understanding of any trends in the rise of cases we will still ask you provide contact details when you enter our buildings.

In line with current legal requirements, we, along with many other public arenas (such as the GP surgery, hairdressers and smaller capacity shops), will ask that face coverings to be worn while you are inside and moving around within close proximity of other people. We believe that this measure is an important step in safeguarding everyone.

Singing will be permitted inside the building although to counter the increased transmission risks please continue to wear a mask whilst doing so.

We are now offering communion at our services in both kinds. To accommodate those who would like to remain socially distanced, we are still ensuring spaces are available for them, we will continue to share the peace virtually, minimising personal contact where possible.

For all of our zoom services here are the access details

Our Prayer Tree Network has been set up whereby one request for prayer, to Sue, will result in many members of our congregation praying into that request. Requests can be e-mailed to sue-upton@talk21.com

We would love it is you would support us in two ways, firstly by praying that we will be able to continue to share the love of Jesus in our community and secondly financially, as we receive no external funding, either in person or through our just giving page here; https://www.justgiving.com/stnicholas-bradwell or click here

We are looking forward secure in the knowledge passed to us via the prophet Jeremiah, ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God bless all

Steve
