Serving others and making a difference
Due to the upsurge in Covid-19 in the Middlesbrough area, the PCC has reluctantly decided to postpone the consultation meeting planned for this Friday evening in the Church hall to talk about the future way forward for St Mary's and the hall.
St Mary's Church now 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 sides people or church warden while you are inside the building.
The Vicar is providing a service sheet with sermon and readings for each Sunday.
This can be found on the Service Sheet page of the website.
As the Parish Magazine is unable to be distributed at the moment it can be found on this website
The September copy is now on the website.
All church events including the AGM and all meetings have been cancelled or postponed.
It is hoped to be able to hold the AGM in October.
Please look out for any elderly or vulnerable people around you who may need help,
as well as looking after yourselves.
Please remember you are held in God's love and we as the Parish Church in Acklam will support you.
We will keep this page updated as further information is received.
