Here are the hymns and readings for the service. All these documents will appear in new windows so you can keep them open simultaneously and click between them using the tabs at the top of the screen.

10.30 a.m. Holy Communion at St Paul's, Aldbrough St John

The sermon will be preached by Doreen Liston.

The hymns will be announced in church and the congregation may join in the singing of them.

Covid Mitigation Procedures

For those attending the service in church, where possible we will be maintaining a 1+ m distance (seating in every other pew). For the safety of everyone we encourage the wearing of facecoverings, including while singing (unless you're in the choir). Plenty of hand sanitiser and ventilation will be provided. At communion we will continue to receive just the bread or a blessing which at Aldbrough will be brought to you in your seat

In lieu of the church collection plate, please look at joining the Parish Giving Scheme. Details below.

Using Zoom for Church Services

If you have not yet joined a service using Zoom, you can either join the invitations list by contacting Rev. Camilla to let her know you want to join. (You will need to give her your email addess in this email) or you can log in using  the meeting ID 444-186-6493 and password 2406. Open up this Zoom website and put in these details. If it doesn't say 'Join a Meeting' prominently in the centre of the screen, check the menus at the top for 'Join a Meeting'. It will help if your name shows on your log in. To do this click on the 3 small dots in the top right corner of your picture and select the tab on the small drop down menu that appears.

If you are concerned that you have not been giving to the church via the collection plate at Zoom services, and would like to make a regular contribution to your own church (or churches), please consider joining the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS}. See below the service details or here for more information.

We are currently having problems with our recently set-up online giving page. If you would like to make a donation by internet bank transfer, please go to our Giving to the Parishes and Benefice page.

Private Prayer in church

All our parish churches are now open during the day for private prayer. Please follow the Covid procedures to keep everyone safe.

Stanwick St John is also open for private prayer. Please note that there is no hand sanitiser or other special precautions in place here but it is well ventilated.

Parish Giving Scheme (PGS)

The Church of England values the vital financial contributions its congregations make to its work but recognises that the way people deal with money - especially cash -  is changing.

If you have been wondering what to do about your usual gifts to your church given during the collection, please have a look at the Church of England's now preferred method of regular giving, the Parish Giving Scheme. The use of online and contactless payments is also being encouraged for occasional donations.

We have also put a more locally focussed page about it here on our website. It has the church details that you will need when you register with PGS.

Thank you for your support.
