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

 

Our PCC has taken the decision to stop public worship for the time being, while infection rates are so high in the capital. This was a challenging decision to make, weighing up the value and importance of worship in our churches against solidarity with the ‘stay at home‘ message. The threat to the capacity to cope in hospitals, seen in the declaring of a major incident by the London Mayor, and the unknown qualities of the new strain crystalised the need for a painful and sad decision to close.

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).

Lockdown Sunday Service timetable 

Our @9.15am service on Zoom focuses on children and their families for both churches of our parish.

Our 10.30am Eucharist/ Service of the Word on Zoom. The sermon for the 10.30am service is uploaded, in the week after the sermon, to the “Listen Again” section of this website.

If you have any questions please email Rev’d John Whittaker by clicking on this link: [email protected]

We are not currently holding services on Sundays at 6pm, Tuesday mornings for pre-school children, or 12.30pm Communion on Wednesday lunchtimes.

Our newsletter will continue to be emailed out weekly and can be found under the “Welcome/ Resources” heading.

If you would like to pray on your own, we  have written this service sheet covid 19_services_at_home designed to be used at home.  
 
God Bless.
