This weekend there are three services in the Benefice

10 a.m. at St Mary’s Church, Gillingham - A service of Holy Communion using Common Worship

10.30 a.m. at St Nicholas, Silton - A service of Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer

6.30 p.m. at St Simon and St Jude, Milton on Stour - A said service of Evensong

We are delighted to be able to meet together to worship again and you will be very welcome. We are also very aware that some are still shielding or not ready or able to come to these gatherings and so we continue with a weekly zoom coffee morning on a Wednesday with prayers and occasional zoom services.

Each church has undertaken a risk assessment regarding Covid19 and those over 70 or in the vulnerable category are still advised to avoid larger gatherings. We encourage all who come to bring their own hand sanitiser, but there is also several available at each church. Please note that social distancing limits the numbers we can fit in the building and this will be especially true at Silton where numbers that can be safely accommodated in the building are 27.

We will do all we can to make sure those who want to come are able to, please also bear with us as we implement the necessary government and Church of England guidelines.
