Weekly Pew News

PEW NEWS W/B 23rd JANUARY

Welcome to St Greg’s!

Our Gospel (Luke 4:14-21) this week focuses on Jesus fulfilling the law and the prophets and we are reminded again of Christ the Teacher through the work of the Holy Spirit. (See above link for my reflection.)
 
It is an opportunity to ask ourselves are we teachable for God’s ways?
I have been reminded of this summary which Jesus exemplifies:

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

Safety update 

Thurs 27th Jan England reverts back to the national Plan A covid response winter plan:

“You will not be required to wear a face covering, including in communal areas of schools, but the government suggests you continue to wear one in crowded and indoor spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.”

It is also recommended to continue testing before meeting others; hand sanitising and ventilating indoor spaces as well as encourage booster vaccination to ensure maximum immunity and reduced virus transferability.

The guidance to self test when experiencing ‘cold like’ symptoms remains- as almost half of colds are actually covid19- and to self isolate if tested positive.

There is currently no updated national church guidance.

This guidance and its relevance to maintaining the safety of our congregation will be discussed by the PCC.

Do take care of yourself and others as we continue to live in the pandemic.

Every blessing
