Sevices and Events

Preparing for return to public worship and other events

The measures recently announced to allow public services to take place again in church are permissive, but do not legislate for every situation.
We are happy that we can begin a process towards resumption of Sunday morning Eucharists in each church, but it is clear that a significant number of our members will continue to need to shield, and stay at home so that live-streaming, which has worked well to hold our communities together so far, will continue to be necessary for some time to come. It has also been recognised that online worship has connected us to both old and new friends, far and near, so that the technology is here to stay – beyond the immediate pandemic.
We will therefore seek the means to allow us eventually to live-stream our public worship.

So for now, our intention is that from Sunday 5th July:

Sunday Morning Zoom Services will continue at 10.30am.
Go to St Saviour’s Websitewww.stsaviourhampstead.org.uk on Saturday evening to get the link and Service Sheet, or ask David, our Administrator to put you on our Congregational Email list to receive these automatically (stpandsts@gmail.com, or call 07514 480971)

The church will hold a Said Eucharist (no singing is allowed in church as yet) each Sunday afternoon at 4:30pm, where those attending can receive the sacrament in the form of bread only (no wine), keeping appropriate social distance.
Please note that toilets will not be available (but the services will be shorter than usual!)

Junior Church will meet face to face again with Fr. Petrica leading, either in church or the church garden – possibly on Sunday afternoon or Sunday morning – please ‘watch this space’ and listen out!

The church will also hold its regular midweek Holy Communion service on Wednesdays at 1.15pm but with no food or drink provided afterwards. The above restrictions will also apply here.

Daily Prayer - 8.30am Morning Prayer – said by Fr. Paul will be available again for others to join at safe social distance.

FOR ALL OF THE ABOVE IT WILL BE NECESSARY FOR ALL TO SANITIZE THEIR HANDS ON ARRIVAL.
ONLY DISPOSABLE SERVICE SHEETS (not booklets) WILL BE USED.

The church will also be open for individual prayer for one hour from 10:30 to 11:30 am Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and 12:00 to 1:00pm on Thursday.

Concerts of instrumental music only, literary events and talks may take place, but with limited numbers only possible these will be either by invitation, or through advance ticketing.
We look forward to being able to host these, and giving you information in good time.
