A message from our Minister

Dear friends,
The Elders have been reflecting on the government's decision to ease lockdown restrictions with effect from July 19, and how that might be reflected in our arrangements at Wallington URC. We have received guidance from the Synod moderators that we need to continue to show care for others, and not cast off all restraints.

Being mindful of the rising infection rates and the fact that not everyone has yet been vaccinated, Elders decided that it would be appropriate to maintain for the time being our current arrangements for social distancing, face coverings and hand sanitising, and we will continue to make health checks as people arrive on the premises.

We have now returned to the pattern of worship we followed prior to Covid-19. I will be leading worship at Wallington URC on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month and at St Andrew's on the 2nd and 4th. (Any 5th Sundays will be shared out over the year.) The other services will be led by visiting preachers and our own members, so there will be 'live' worship every week. However, for the time being hymns and songs will continue to be recordings.

It would be good to welcome back more folk in the coming weeks, but I am conscious that some people are still anxious about returning. If you have concerns or are uncertain what it will be like please contact me or one of the Elders and we will do our best to lessen your concerns.

We hope to make available recordings of recent services in due course. Meanwhile, those who are unable to join us in person, may wish to follow the live-streamed services from St Andrew's Cheam via their YouTube channel.

Yours in Christ,
Rev Craig Bowman

Worship Resources

In these unsettling times, we remain committed to being a church community that seeks to care for one another, pray with each other and worship together.

Although we are no longer preparing pre-recorded services, recent recordings and other resources, such as activity sheets for children and families, can be found on our Worship Resources page.
