As you probably know, everyone in our country is being advised to stay at home during the Covid19 pandemic. For now, all church services are cancelled and our churches are officially closed. Sadly, this also means that they will not be open for funerals. The government and our Bishop are working hard to produce guidelines on this very sensitive area. The hope is that once this current emergency is over, we will be able to have memorial services for each person that has passed from us. I will update you on funerals once I know more.
In the meantime, while our church buildings may be closed, we do have many other ways of keeping in touch. I will be endeavoring to find ways of keeping our family of church members together, without us having to physically meet - by phone, podcast, internet, snail mail etc. I am open to any suggestions people might give me. I will keep in touch..
Keep safe and God bless,
Rev Kingsley Sutton
Rector of the Kilgarriffe Union of Parishes
