From Sunday 5 September we will be starting a new sermon series as we begin our journey through Mark’s Gospel. Our adults will meet in the main church building, whilst our young people’s groups will meet in the halls. Entry to the services can be either at the ‘new doors’ entrance or through the Link, but our young people will need to register in the Link before going straight to their groups. There is no longer a requirement to book at these services. People will still be encouraged to ‘gel’ on entry, but it is your choice whether or not to wear a mask. Chairs will be spread out throughout the church, but if you want to bring them closer together that’s fine. Our offering is taken at the end of the service in plates at both exits. You are welcome to spend time in fellowship at the end of the service (except when we have baptisms following the service), but we are not able to provide refreshments (bring your own if you want!).
For the time being Wednesday 9.30 am Holy Communion will continue as an alternative to a 9.00 am Holy Communion on a Sunday. Usually this will come from Common Worship liturgy, but occasionally, perhaps monthly, we will use the Book of Common Prayer. In general, this service will include hymn singing.
Our pre-recorded online services will not be continuing, but it is hoped that if you are unable to join on Sunday, we will record the service and then publish it on our YouTube channel during the week after the service has taken place.
Please note that these arrangements are regularly under review and if you have any questions or suggestions about these plans, please do let me or the churchwardens know.

Many of our Homegroups are now able to meet normally in people’s homes or at church in the case of the daytime homegroups. Your homegroup leader will be working with you to work out the best way of meeting in your group. Homegroups have proven to be a great way to maintain links within the church family over the past year and more. If you would like to join a homegroup, please contact Laura Simpkins (discipleship coordinator).
If you are new to St. Saviour’s and wanting to join a homegroup, please let Laura know your requirements.
