Serving others and making a difference
St Mary's Church Acklam has a Said Communion Service at 10am
every Sunday until further notice.
Private prayer will continue every Wednesday from 2pm until 3.30pm.
Please note these points:-
1) Social distancing will be maintained during the services.
2) The congregation will receive the Sacrament in one kind only, namely the bread.
3) Wearing a face covering is now mandatory.
4) Please follow the guidance posted in the Church, and any guidance from the church warden or sides person while you are inside the building.
The Vicar is providing a service sheet with sermon and readings for each Sunday.

All Souls is on Sunday 1st November and during the 10am service the names of those loved ones who have departed and notified to us will be read out.
Remembrance Sunday will be held on the 8th November.
this will be followed at 11am by the AGM which should have been held last April !!! Please note the church can only hold 45 people due to seating restrictions in force at the moment so there will be a first come first served policy in force.
