Wednesday 22nd July witnessed the Licensing and Installation of Rev Alexander Shannon at St Andrew’s Parish Church presided over by the Bishop of Colchester, due to COVID19 attendees were strictly limited to the Benefice Church Wardens and Ministry Team and Alexander’s close family members including his two young children.
Service was broadcast using the ZOOM software with 70 residents including some listening by telephone.
Organizers need to be congratulated in their efforts as St Andrew’s does not have a Internet connect and mobile signals are very weak in the area, perhaps this is the way church services will need to go until the epidemic has cleared.
Rev Alexander Shannon will be conducting the 11.00am Service at St Andrew’s on Sunday 26th July, also will be at the church on Tuesday morning 9.30am – 11.00am to give residents an opportunity to meet informally, also at:-
Monday 27th July Finchingfield
Tuesday 28th July Shalford
Thursday 30th July Cornish Hall End
Friday 31st July Wethersfield
