St Mary's Yapton Re-Opening Times

Worship from September
Although I haven’t finalised things the intention is to have a Sunday service and a Thursday service. Rather than having to clean the buildings we can leave them empty for 72 hours to ‘self clean’. The first week (Sunday and Thursday) will be at Yapton, then the second week at Clymping and so on. At the end of September it will be reviewed.
We have been told by the bishop of Chichester that masks should be worn during services.
I’m still not sure how we will administer the communion bread - this may be a trial and error process!
I’m already getting requests for places for week 1, I’m happy to take names this week but NOT during August as I’m on annual leave. Please contact me again after the Bank holiday Monday. It would helpful if you could tell me if you’re happy to come to either Sunday or Thursday or not. I will confirm places during the week before the service.
Once we get into the swing of things I’ll be able to confirm places when you contact me. Bookings will normally only be taken the week leading up to the service.
People will be asked to wait outside church where you will be individually met and taken to your designated seat.

Phew, does that make any sense? We have had our first service – a wedding at Yapton – under these conditions and it actually worked ok!

As we navigate our way through these unique times, one of the best things we can do is to stay in touch and in communion.
Rev. Richard will produce a regular newsletter and is asking that you email him so he can build a distribution to receive the newsletter.  His email is on the Contacts page.
We will also be making good use of Facebook to socialise and communicate so please follow cyfchurches Benefices to join us.

Obviously as a result of all Church services being suspended, our income will now reduce considerably, but unfortunately the majority of our expenses still need to be paid, and we see ourselves called to serve more in these tough times.

Could we please encourage those of you who normally contribute via weekly envelopes or cash into the collection, to think about whether you could continue to contribute, but via different means, namely either by direct payment from your bank, or if not by perhaps sending a monthly cheque.

If you need to set up a standing order with your bank, then for Clymping church it’s:
PCC of St.Marys Clymping, sort code 40-52-40, account number 00016271
For Yapton and Ford it’s:
Yapton with Ford PCC, CAF Bank sort code 40 52 40, account number 00016631
If you would like to send a cheque, please make it payable to PCC of St.Marys Clymping, and send to 23 West Close, Middleton-on-Sea, PO22 7RP.
Or Yapton with Ford PCC, send to 32 Goodhew Close, Yapton BN18
Thank you very much in advance for any contributions you can make.
