Important Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 26th March

For the safety of all society and to protect NHS services:

  • Avoid unnecessary journeys

  • People should not meet friends or family members who do not live with them

  • Try to reduce handling of food when shopping and always keep 2 metres (6 feet) apart from non-family members

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • If you work, then only travel to work if you cannot undertake your job from home

  • Public gatherings of more than two people are banned

Our Latest Sermon Notes
My immediate thought was, I have run out of things to say! Don't rejoice too quickly! There is a sermon for today. I looked at the reading for the first Sunday of Lent. By the way, I hope you knew we are now in the season of Lent. We are in the run up to Easter. I looked at the reading for today and wondered what am I going to say that I have not already said, about the temptations of Jesus. I was 'tempted' to look out an old sermon and see if any one noticed. Can I say, I have not done that, but if something I say does sounds familiar, it is probably because I have said it before.
