Vestry Meeting

The Vestry are going to meet in the coming weeks to discuss the possibility of re-opening the church. The meeting will be held by Zoom to maintain social distancing. There is a detailed checklist to be worked through before a final decision can be made. The two metre distance would need to be maintained, plus hand sanitising on arrival and departure. A register of attendees would be kept for track and trace purposes. These are just some of the measures that would need to be in place to protect the congregation and clergy. There is a link to more information on the stjohnswick website.

Toilet Fund

We recently submitted an application to the National Churches Trust for a Cornerstone grant towards the Toilet Project. A decision is not expected until November 2020 but you can read about their work at nationalchurchestrust.org. We need funding from external bodies if we are to reach our target.

Church Services

Our buildings may be closed but we are still open for business. Rev Ellie has been working tirelessly to connect with the congregation through online services and zoom coffee mornings, not forgetting those who prefer the written word by posting out the weekly reflection. The ministry team have also been assisting throughout the lockdown. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to mission in Caithness.

Vestry Secretary

 


 
 

Priest's Letter

From Bishop Mark, Priest-in-Charge and Primus

10th July 2020

Dear Friends across the Diocese

As most of you will now know, the Scottish Government has given permission for places of worship to reopen next week as long as those places can be opened safely. This will require much hard work and some difficult decisions. In some cases it will be difficult to open and some cases it might not be right to open just yet. These decisions will be made by your clergy and your vestry with support from myself as bishop.

There is no right answer to this process, each place is different and each church member will be experiencing this situation differently.

Many of your clergy have worked hard in new and unusual ways and are ready for a break, yet we need to work through this next phase.

So can I ask that you hold the diocese, the congregations and the clergy in prayer. Could you remember that rather than expecting your clergy to be there for you, we must also be there for them. Some are shielding, some are as anxious as you and that, as you know, makes us all vulnerable.

My fervent prayer is to be with you all again, but I know that wonderful moment might take longer in some places than others. We are a family of faith, let us hold each other in love.

Prayers Blessings and love
