Services at St Mary's Church
and the Parish of Putney
during 2021 Lockdown
With the ever changing Covid-19 related regulations we would like to reassure you that we will continue to provide services either on-line (if church services cannot take place) or in church with livestreaming facilities for those who are unable to attend in person. Over the months we have finely tuned our provisions and, hopefully, your spiritual life may continue as best it can under the circumstances. To receive information about our online provisions please do sign up to our Church Mouse communications by clicking on this link:
St Mary’s Online Services during 2021 Lockdown
We will resume in church services Ash Wednesday (17th February 2021):
12:30pm Eucharist at St Mary’s and
8:00pm Ash Wednesday Sung Eucharist at All Saints’ – a service for members of both churches. This service will also be broadcast on Zoom, please sign up to our Church Mouse emails to receive the meeting details. The servicesheet for this service can be accessed here Ash Wednesday 2021
Both 10:30am Eucharists on Sundays will also continue to be broadcast on-line.
The 8:30am Eucharist at All Saints’ and the 6:00pm Caritas at St Mary’s will happen at church but will not be broadcast.
- Whilst the churches are open for people who wish to attend to do so, our welcome is to worship either on-line or at church and each household makes their choice of what feels right for you. If you are in a vulnerable group or have lots of contact with other people, our encouragement is that you worship on-line.
- Regulations still require Sunday Schools to be closed and so we continue with the Parish of Putney on-line 9:15am service, designed for children and their families. We will not be bringing this into church as we are not confident in our ability to have the social distancing needed.
- Our @9.15am service is taking a break on 14th and 21st February.
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
Please note that St Mary’s is still open for people visiting for private prayer, as part of their daily exercise, 10am – 2 pm Wednesdays to Saturdays and 11:30am – 2 pm Sundays. We respectfully ask that you observe the now common safeguards of socially distancing, using hand sanitizer (we provide this), wearing your mask and completing our Trace and Track forms (or uploading the QR code displayed).
