SERVICES and OPEN CHURCH UPDATE
Father Jeff wrote on 14th January 2021:
Reluctantly, like many other churches and cathedrals in the country, we at St Mary`s have had to take the difficult decision not to offer the opportunity to enter the church for prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays for the time being. This is in keeping with the Government and Scientific advice not to encourage one another to venture from home unless absolutely necessary.
Thankfully, what we are still able to do is worship together on Zoom each Sunday, by clicking the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85685339742 [more details below].
Our Sunday School is also able to continue to meet online. [Details here: ]
The Memorial Garden will be open daily from 10am until 4pm, for people to visit, sit in and reflect.
We will keep this under weekly review and will reopen the church as soon as we are advised that it is wise to do so.
Jeff Hopkin Williams,
Vicar of St Mary`s Twickenham.
Please observe social distancing in line with current Government instructions if you enter St Mary's grounds or Garden.
We continue to post our ‘Icon of the Day’ featuring words, images and prayers on this website and on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/StMarysTwickenham on a daily basis – do take a moment to read and reflect.
