Services at Mayfield Church

18 July 2020

Sunday Service!

Outdoor Evening Praise and Prayer in Mayfield Churchyard. 5.30 pm Sunday. 30 mins max. East end of the Churchyard. Bring a garden chair and/or rug if you wish. Compliant with Covid-guidelines. This is a pilot scheme, and the flight path is a learning curve!

In the Church

Mayfield Church is now open for personal prayer and quiet reflection at the following times:
Sundays, from 9.30 a.m. to 10.15 a.m.
Wednesdays, from 5.30 p.m to 6.30 p.m.

The "summons" bell will ring on Sundays from 9.15 a.m. and the church will be prepared for a safe and restorative visit - for you alone, or with your household.

The lights will be on, the seating clearly marked out (there will be seating pads to show you or your household where you may sit - always in alternate pews), and there will be hand gel as you walk in. Please be sure to use it. Both sides of the main door will be wide open for when you arrive and leave. A set of reminders will be placed on the table top on the right as you enter.

Please do come at any time within these allocated periods and be assured that the church will have been cleaned and will not have been occupied within the previous 72 hours.

You may wonder why Sunday opening cannot be at the usual 10.45 time; this is because the vicar will continue to provide the Zoom service at 10.30 which has been running for some weeks now. If you’re not already part of this and would like to be, please email for the weekly password. Also, please remember that the two opening times are not church services: they are for personal and quiet prayer and reflection only. Therefore, and for public health reasons, singing cannot be permitted, but we may have some suitable music playing quietly. Neither can we hand out prayer books or bibles, so please bring your own, or perhaps the weekly Church at Home leaflet, which has resources for prayer, worship and reflection. The latter would mean that we'd be "on the same hymn sheet" (alas, without the singing!) which would give a limited measure of corporate worship between us. But whatever you bring, you must remember to take it away with you.

A PCC member will open the Church and and lock up afterwards, and Rev Martin Soar will usually be present and available, at a "social distance". If you've any uncertainties or questions, please
