Covid-19 guidance

With the second Lockdown ending on 2nd December, services will restart with the Sunday Holy Communion Service at 10am on 6th December 2020. Until then the government has published the full regulations (PDF) for England’s second national lockdown, which began on Thursday 5th November 2020. As per the government guidelines the church will be closed for services, except funeral services. We will be opening the church for private prayer; Sunday's 11:30am to 12:30pm and Wednesday's 10am to 11am.

The leaders of the UK faith communities have written to the government protesting the closutre of places of worship under the second national lockdown. It can be read here (PDF).

We continue to work with the Government and Church of England Covid-19 guidance in making the church environment as safe as possible and to protect everyone.

  • Face coverings are mandatory in places of worship unless you have a legitimate exemptions for health, or where communication is impeded when wearing a mask, or are a bride and groom and those officiating at a wedding.
  • On entering and exiting St Cuthbert's everyone is asked to use the  hand sanitiser provided in the entrance porch.
  • Please always keep to the Government physical (social) distancing guidelines while inside and outside the church. Remember this is still 2 metres without some additional control measures like a face covering.
  • Government guidance includes a request that we record the names of attendees and visitors. Please enter your details in the attendance sheet. These records are kept for 21 days, to assist track-and-trace if required. All information is dealt with as required by GDPR and the records will be securely disposed of after 21 days. St Cuthbert's privacy policy is available here.

To maintain physical distancing at the end of the service please follow the one-way system while maintaining physical (social) distancing.

A warm St Cuthbert's welcome still awaits you, although no refreshments can be provided at the end of the service, and we can no longer sing hymns during the services.

There will be no Wednesday Communion service for the time being.

Here’s Elvis the Donkey!

Gary the Camel’s Column

There’s such a growing gang of us now at St Cuthbert’s; because there is me, Elvis, Lizzie, Precious, Brother Thomas and Canon Henry Gordon Throckmorton, we’re quite a clan. That’s not forgetting Jim the rabbit, Digit the monkey and Spit the dog. You never know which one of us is going to turn up at the Family Service.

As you know, I’m a very famous camel; I am THE camel, because I helped to guide the wise men to the Bethlehem star. I told them not to interfere with my calculations or cramp my style with their pomposity! Spit!* They were cool. I liked the wise men. Us camels are very clever and can navigate the night sky. Spit*!

Elvis is a very famous donkey too. He is THE donkey, not just any old donkey… but THE donkey. He carried Mary when she was pregnant with baby Jesus, and then when Jesus was grown up, he carried Him into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. How cool is that?

I’m sure that you’ll join with me to say a very warm welcome to Elvis and the others in the clan. Spit!* 🙂

St Cuthbert’s camel tells us all!

I have to begin by saying that I’ve had a great month of April! Well….it has been a beautiful month and just right for us camels…nice and warm, bit of sand beneath the feet, people and other camels to spit* at. Just great 🙂

I’m an Arabian camel or dromedary, from the Greek word dromos, meaning “a runner” (Isaiah 60:6; Jeremiah 2:23), I have one hump, and I’m a native of Western Asia or Africa. I’m usually running from trouble these days though! Did you know that there are at least 13 references to camels in the Bible?

You can find out what I get up to on the St Cuthberts Facebook page. On the whole, I behave myself and don’t spit* too often!

I’d like to introduce another friend at St Cuthbert’s. His name is Elvis and he’s a donkey (really!) He tends to start singing Elvis songs when you least expect it though, and he loves munching carrots!
