FAQ's During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Why are you suspending all our group meetings and Sunday services?
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have written a letter to all clergy (see it here
). We’re wanting to protect the most vulnerable in our community at this time and still seek to love.
Our Sunday services will be streamed online at 10.30am each Sunday morning on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/StAndrewsLeyland/
and on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFy5be_-SXW1aWsH6IBNVw
During this time, we’re going to be reading a book together called ‘To Seek and to Save’. It is a series of reflections on readings from Luke’s gospel. Copies will be available to collect from the office from Friday morning (20th March) or we’ll be dropping them round to people who are self-isolating.
We also want to be praying together, and we’ve a number of different ways to do this - details to be announced.
We’ve also put together a little booklet of daily prayers to go with the readings from Luke’s gospel in the book above. Contact the office if you’d like a copy!
Keeping in touch
For those who are online, MyChurchSuite means you can keep in touch with church members easily. Why not lift the phone and see how someone’s doing, especially if you know they’re self-isolating or on their own?
