   GRAVEYARD GARDENING GROUP

     With Spring here and Summer on the way, our Church graveyard is in need of some TLC.

Can you spare an hour or two on a Friday morning to help? Every Friday from 10 am to 11am (refreshments will be provided), just please turn up (if you can bring a few gardening tools please do so).

Thank you.

Coronavirus

Urgent Information Tuesday 17th March 2020 at 1330 taken from the Church of England website:

In light of the government advice around non-essential contact , the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Pakefield Church will therefore be suspending all Sunday and Wednesday Services with immediate effect.
If you require pastoral support or have any questions or wish to be added to our distribution list please contact Reverend Sharon Lord on 01502 516800, email rector@pakefieldchurch.com .

There will be updates through our social media network. Find us on Facebook ( Pakefield Parish Church) and Twitter @pakefieldchurch and our website www.pakefieldchurch.com.

Pakefield Church remains open to all. But we are unable to ensure that surfaces, door handles and our toilet facilities are free from viruses or other contamination.
Everyone is welcome to visit, light a candle and pray but please take care for your own safety.

Coronavirus Sunday 15th March 2020 posted on website 16th March 2020 at 12.20 pm

As a church we are continuing to follow guidance from both Public Health England and the Church of England. Detailed and up to date information can be found at:
https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches
Naturally as part of the community here in Pakefield we want to keep the most vulnerable people safe.
We have had to make some difficult decisions regarding our events, activities and groups, either because they involve catering (which has been suspended by the Church of England) or because they involve the most vulnerable in our community (as either volunteers or as part of the group).

These activities are suspended or postponed :
Monday: Hildersley Holy Communion Service
Tuesday Children’s clubs
Wednesday Morning Coffee and Teddy Edward Club
Friday Lent café

Murder Mystery Evening (tickets purchased will be valid for the new date later in the year)

 

Our hall is used for lots of community groups and some of those groups have decided to suspend meeting, these include (at time of writing)
Monday Toddlers
Tuesday Lunch Club
Wednesday and Friday Bowls Club
If you attend a weekly activity please contact the organiser if you are concerned

Please contact The Revd Sharon Lord if you wish to discuss this further telephone 01502 516800 Email: rector@pakefieldchurch.com or message us through our Facebook page, Website or Twitter

God Bless
Sharon
