Please note that as of March 17th public worship is suspended in line with Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice from the Church of England. From June 20th the church will be open for private prayer on Saturday plus Monday to Thursday between 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm, and between 10.30 am and 1.30 pm on Sunday.
RE-OPENING ST MARY & ST EANSWYTHE FOLKESTONE FOR WORSHIP
We have decided to delay opening St Mary & St Eanswythe Folkestone for worship services until Sunday 6 September, as long as we are not experiencing a second wave of Covid-19 at that time.
The main reason is the age and health profile of our congregation, which affects both the heightened risk of infection and also the availability of volunteers to help run services.
Services of daily Morning Prayer and Sunday Eucharist will continue to be published online. We will continue to open St Mary & St Eanswythe most days for individual prayer.
This decision also affects private ceremonies, concerts and meetings.
During the suspension of public services there will be no weekly news sheet.
Please remember in your prayers:
THE SICK: Irene, Alan and Andrew Birch, Jean Anderson, Anne Jarrett, Sheila Blundell, Vix.
Please let the Clergy or Churchwardens know if you are aware of any of our congregation who are sick or would welcome a pastoral visit or phone call. If you would like someone included in the prayer list please email the Parish Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
