Church Services again suspended due to Coronavirus lock-down.
2nd November 2020
Services of public worship in all Churches have again been suspended due to the Coronavirus lock-down.
This means there are no services at St Aidan’s from Thursday 5th November.
We hope to resume services again on Sunday 6th December, if the lock-down ends.
St Aidan’s halls are also closed.
St Aidan’s chapel remains open daily (except Thursdays) for quiet, prayer and reflection.
Pew-slips and other information and leaflets can be found there, and prayer requests left.
Many prayer and worship resources are available on the diocesan web-site, chelmsford.anglican.org
and on the Church of England web-site, churchofengland.org
as well as St Aidan’s web-site www.staidanschurch.co.uk
Extract from a letter from our national church leaders, 1st November 2020: Bearing in mind our primary vocation as the Church of Jesus Christ to pray and to serve, we call upon the Church of England to make this month of lockdown a month of prayer. More than anything else, we know that we are in the faithful hands of the risen Christ who knows our weaknesses, tiredness and struggles and whose steadfast love endures for ever. During this second lockdown we invite you to fast, in a way appropriate to you, as well as pray for our nation every Thursday, for its leaders, its health and essential services and all those who suffer.
The Most Revd Justin Welby Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd Stephen Cottrell Archbishop of York, The Rt Revd Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London
