Corona virus update (July 2021)

For the time being Christ Church will remain open for services on Wednesdays and Sundays at 10.30am, and for personal prayer on Wednesdays from 9.15am.

The other churches in our Aldenham, Radlett & Shenley Team Ministry have also re-opened for Sunday services. Details are available on the pew leaflets for St John the Baptist Aldenham and St Martin’s Shenley, posted on the website for Christ Church & St John’s https://www.christchurchstjohns.org.uk/.

We ask that, for the benefit of all, members of our congregation continue to wear facemasks in church (although this is not compulsory).

Members of our community are encouraged to join us in church, or if that is your preference, to stay at home; in either case to continue to pray at home, to remain in touch with those known to be lonely or in need, and to contact one of our church leaders if necessary (details available on the back page of the Christ Church & St John’s pew leaflets, also available on the website). Remember - God is everywhere, not just in church.

Please note that the Church Office is open on weekday mornings. The Revd Oliver Blease, newly appointed Vicar of Radlett, is available if you need a member of clergy; the Acting Team Rector, the Revd Robert Fletcher (Aldenham), is also available on 01923 85420 or email him.

Everyone can help during this pandemic and congregations are asked to be at the forefront of providing practical care and support for the most poor and most vulnerable during the crisis.  A booklet entitled "Being a Good Neighbour" from Communities 1st can be downloaded here. If you wish to be included in our Shepherding scheme or WhatsApp group, please contact the church office.

Ideas for personal worship can be found herehere and also on the church Facebook page from time to time. Those wishing to receive the weekly pewsheet by email should contact the Church Office.  Join us for a Prayer meeting by Zoom on Saturday mornings - details on the Pew Leaflet (found on the News page) and via the Shepherding WhatsApp group.

All of us can help and support each other. Please keep in touch with each other by phone, WhatsApp, email, Messenger and offer help or just to chat. No one should feel they are alone. Keep calm, use your common sense, carry on and keep praying.
