Obviously our usual pattern of Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings must be put on hold and there will be no services until we are given the all clear. In the meantime, we are providing online resources and a rota of people who you can communicate with. Read on for details....
Click here for a guide about how to access online services, with or without a Facebook account.
Click here for a service we can all use at home. The plan is that we will have a time on a Sunday when we will all be saying this together in our homes.

On May 8th I shall be livestreaming a service of Thanksgiving for Peace at 10.30 am. Everyone is invited to make a paper dove and hang it in the bushes in the vicarage front garden on your morning walk. Write a prayer or a thought for peace under the wings. Again, hoping it won't rain at that point! We have a bugler coming along at 11 to play the last post.
We will use our website and facebook page to communicate. The diary on the website shows daily readings on the diary tab here http://www.stjohnstjamesed.org.uk/page7.html
We are organising a rota of people offering a listening ear and offering to say a prayer with people. The rota is below. Let me know if you would like to offer a slot (and for those I have already put in, check this is accurate). Elaine will be phoning regularly those whom she usually visits.
In Eton and Eton Wick, the town council is coordinating local groups to make sure there is volunteer cover for all streets to help with deliveries of medicine, groceries, to post letters etc. If you can help in Eton Wick please contact Claire Taylor on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can help in Eton please contact Ros Rivaz via email@example.com
In Dorney the Next Door website is being used to communicate needs and volunteers.
Finally, please beware of scams. There are currently no home testing kits available so anyone offering to sell you one is bogus. As are people telling you that a rebate is due. Do take care.
With blessings and love in Christ
