Communion Services

All our churches are now able to open for worship.

We have decided to hold a said communion service every Sunday
at Cogenhoe and Great Houghton at  9am
and Brafield on the Green and Little Houghton at 10.30am

 Numbers will be limited to meet social distancing requirements.
 Please remember that you are required by law to wear a face covering in the church
 (unless you are exempted).

We are now allowed to hold services outside.

Please read the  guidance from Revd Eddie here.

The Order of Service is here.

Hand sanitizers will be available as you enter the church.  Please use them.
 Our priests will sanitise their hands immediately before distributing communion wafers.
You will be able to receive communion in bread only, not wine.

Zoom Meeting Rooms

Revd Eddie and Revd Irene each have a meeting room for  hosting services and social events.  I will try to make sure all the links above are correct each week but if you find yourself in an empty room please try the other link.
