Online services via Zoom have begun!

We held our first online service via Zoom on Sunday 17th January and it proved to be a success. Despite initial technological "teething" issues, it was joined by 11 households who were able to follow the Communion service led by Revd David Chance. It was surprising how noticeable the sense of communal worship was by comparison with simply watching online. We intend to offer Zoom servcies for the foreseeable future.

Services by Zoom continue

We held our second online service via Zoom on Sunday 24th January and it proved to be successful. Revd Shaun had managed to iron out some technical "teething" issues which manifested themselves during the first service on 17th January. It was joined by 6 households who were able to follow the Communion service led by Shaun. We intend to offer Zoom services for the foreseeable future.

Happy New Year!

We wish all visitors to our website a happy New Year. Like everyone else, we hope that 2021 will be a better year and that church worship will gradually be able to be held under more normal circumstances.

In the meantime, St Paul's will aim to hold services each Sunday under Covid-safe rules and all will be welcome to join us.

Christmas services - thank you

We would like to express our thanks to all who supported our services at Christmas. It was a very difficult time to hold public gatherings and we thought hard before doing so. However, we are grateful that so many people came along to our Outdoor Carol Service on 20th December and took care to observe the measures in place to limit the spread of Covid-19. Our Christmas Mass on 24th December was attended by 22 people and all were likewise keen to comply with the rules for indoor worship. We look forward, eventually, to being able to hold services more normally in 2021!

Christmas wreaths

At the start of the year, the challenge went out for talented individuals to make money for the church. Based on the Parable of the Talents, £10 was offered to anyone who was willing to invest this sum in a venture that would yield even more money.

Josie Foster remembered this appeal, despite the intervention of Covid-19, and has been applying both her investment and her skills to making Christmas wreaths.

They are very good indeed and we currently have one that she made hanging on our front door. Josie included a passage in a card with the wreath and, for benefit of anyone who hasn’t seen it, it is as follows:

“The Christmas wreath is a popular decoration that we typically find hanging on a door, over the fireplace, or in windows. But, did you know that the circular shape of the wreath has a symbolic meaning? The circular shape symbolises eternity, it has no beginning and no end, just like Jesus’ love for us.

Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Every time you see a Christmas Wreath, remember that God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have everlasting life.

Takeaway: Look around your house or take a walk around your neighbourhood, every time you see a wreath think about a time when you have experienced God’s love.”

Remembrance

St Paul's, together with Landkey Parish Council, conducted a short Act of Remembrance at the village war memorial on Sunday 8th November at 10:45am. Rules to prevent the spread of Covid-19 meant that we could not hold a service in the village hall as we would normally have done.

A group of six village representatives led the Act, including the laying of wreaths and the holding of two minutes' silence at 11am. Around 40 village residents observed the proceedings, as they were allowed to do, and took care to comply with social distancing requirements.

Wreaths were laid by Richard Halliday on behalf of Landkey Parish Council and by Mike Foster for St Paul's Church. Chris James led the Act while Charles Waldron called out the names of those soldiers listed on the memorial as having given their lives in time of war. Peter Elder and John Hayes respectively read the odes, "For the Fallen" and "The Kohima Epitaph".

We thank village residents for coming to observe the Act in a way which complied with rules preventing the spread of infection and also the drivers who waited patiently with their engines off during the ceremony.
