Community & coping with Covid

Offering a safe welcome: latest covid protections

The PCC 11th May 2022 agreed the following:
 
To help protect the vulnerable and out of concern for the anxious, we are continuing to ask everyone who comes to church for a service to wear a mask (except at the 8.00am service, when numbers are very small and there is no singing) and to continue socially distancing in church.
 
We are also continuing to ask everyone to use hand gel on entry, on exit and before taking communion.
 
All doors are also open during the service, to give maximum ventilation.
 
Communion is being taken at the altar rail; it would be helpful if one of the sidesmen once again stands at the step to assist stepping up and down for the less mobile.

 

COMMUNITY LIFE

Those you find attending services at St Gregory’s are, naturally, a part of the local community, and you will find them supporting, and participating, in many of our splendid village clubs, associations and activities. 

We are pleased to have shared with the other churches in Marnhull in setting up a scheme for welcoming new residents to the village, offering fellowship through a monthly lunch club, and providing lifts for those who need them to keep appointments etc. Originally Marnhull Church Care, this is now ‘owned’ by the community as a whole, is called Marnhull Village Care, and can be found through the following link :marnhull-village-care

Started by the Church too, and now expanded to provide a forum for the whole community, is the Marnhull Messenger, a monthly publication readily available in the churches and village shops in its printed edition, and at www.marnhullmessenger.org.uk in its online form.

St Gregory’s has a Facebook Page where Revd Gaenor posts thoughts and news for the week, www.facebook.com/stgregschurch.  This web site provides information about the various activities and clubs in the village.  Information on the village can also be found on the parish council web site marnhull-pc.org.uk

The Salisbury Diocese is linked with Sudan and St Gregory’s is kept up to date with their news, you can find out more on the web page here

St Gregory’s, through its clergy is always ready to respond to requests for a visit by those who are elderly or infirm or who for any other reason would like to see a representative from the Church. (Please see Home Page for details or click on the link)

As a response to the social isolation that the pandemic has brought, St Gregory’s has started a Coffee, Cake and Company morning on Thursdays, find out more here.
