Church Christmas Services 

December 2020

christmas

Sunday 6th December Family Service 10.30am

Our patronal festival service in Church this year is focusing on adults and disadvantaged young people.

Elllenor would welcome any small gifts of toiletries for those adults who have been isolated since March due to Covid restrictions.

KCC would welcome monetary gifts for disadvantaged young people through their early help and preventative services known as ‘New Beginnings’.

So any help for either of these good causes would be very much appreciated.

 

Sunday 20th December Virtual Online Candlelit Carol Service from 5.30pm

Follow our Candlelit Service from St. Nicholas Church featuring carols sung by the choir and hear readings from members of the congregation (all pre recorded Covid safe). PLEASE NOTE - this is an online service only.

Follow the link below from 5.30pm (link to follow)


Christmas Eve Visit the Crib 2.00-4.00pm

As there cannot be a Crib Service this year due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are offering a special opportunity to visit the Christmas Crib scene on Christmas Eve between 2.00-4.00pm in a socially distanced way in the Church porch.

We have a prayer tree with tags and special treats for the children.

If you would like to decorate a wooden sheep to bring with you on Christmas Eve to add to our flock, please collect one from the Church or school.

Participants must respect current social distancing regulations when attending.

St. Nicholas Church Newsletter

6th November 2020

Dear Friends,


We, the new Church Wardens, would like to keep you informed of details relating to the Church, now that we have entered an interregnum, as Josh left us last week. We gave him a small leaving gift, but he asked that if anyone wished to donate anything, he would like it to go to St. Luke’s, the charity supporting the clergy. (www.stlukesforclergy.org.uk)


As we have again been prevented from meeting in person, we have produced a Remembrance Day service for Sunday, with our guest preacher, the Archdeacon of Rochester, Andy Wooding Jones. This may be accessed on line by visiting our Church Website and clicking the You Tube link on the ‘services’ page.


Future services will also be listed on the website depending on government restrictions. Our next planned service is scheduled to be on 5th December which will be the traditional Toy Service when you are invited to provide a new toy for a child in need. We are happy to accept donations for this even if we can’t meet together for worship. We are planning to reintroduce music and singing, which will be broadcast by recording and participation by the choir only. The Christmas services obviously remain in question, but we will always keep the web site up to to date.


For the weeks when we are not able to broadcast, there is a service of worship on line found by typing ‘churchofengland.org’. We will be opening the church for private prayer on Thursdays from 12th November 10.00 to 11.30am


We are delighted that we will be installing a new audio-visual system thanks to the generosity of a legacy. This will include a screen, projector and should enable live streaming of the services for those unable to attend. We will be able to welcome outside groups to use these facilities too.


You will have seen in the media that Churches, especially the small parish ones, are struggling financially. Ours is no exception! Our income has dropped dramatically, but we also recognise that many individuals are suffering too. Any donations would help us enormously, with regular giving by standing order being especially helpful. If you do feel that you are in a position to support us, we would be happy to give you details or visit the web page.


As we enter this second lockdown, please do contact us if you have any specific requirements, need support or even a regular phone call. The church phone number is 07484 154613 or via email:-

churchwardensstnicholas@gmail.com

With best wishes for your health and wellbeing. Sue and Sue
