We are looking forward to welcoming Rev’d Jonathan Evans when he takes up his new position as Rector of the Benefice of Bruton, Brewham, Pitcombe and Shepton Montague on 11th February 2021. His first service will be an online Benefice service on Sunday, 14th February which will be available from 11am that day on the Bruton Church website: www.stmarysbruton.org.
Pitcombe PCC plans to resume services at St Leonard’s with a service of Holy Communion at 11am on Sunday, 21st February which will be taken by Rev’d Jonathan Evans. This will be followed on Sunday, 28th February by evensong at 6pm and we hope to be able to resume our usual pattern of worship for March.
We will continue to follow the guidance to make our Church covid secure and you will find that some of the pews will remain closed to enable social distancing thus limiting capacity. May we ask therefore that you book places to attend services on both the 21st and 28th February. It is very important that we know how many people will be attending within your household bubble so that seating plans can be drawn up in order to keep everyone safe. May I remind you of the rules. Please ensure that you wear a face covering and follow the social distancing 2m rule at all times. There will be a hand sanitising station in the porch to use before entering the church where you will be directed to your seat. May we respectfully ask that at the end of the service you wait in your pew until instructed to leave, then on doing so immediately make your way to the car park, at the moment there can be no socialising within the Church or Churchyard.
If you wish to attend either of our February services can you please contact either Philip Pidsley (firstname.lastname@example.org) tel: 01749 813842 or (email@example.com) tel. 01963 350222 to book in.
