We wish all in our villages a very Happy and Healthy New Year, one filled with hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Following the escalation of corona virus cases locally, and advice from the Government and the Bishop of London on behalf of the Church of England, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to suspend both public worship and private prayer, and close Christ Church for the next three weeks, with immediate effect.  The situation will be reviewed towards the end of January.

 The other churches in our Aldenham, Radlett & Shenley Team Ministry are streaming services and providing podcasts and reflections. 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/.

 Members of our community are encouraged to stay at home, 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).

The position of Vicar of Radlett is vacant as Javaid has moved to become Archdeacon of Doncaster. The advert for a new Vicar is now live! Please pray for the recruitment process and that the right person for our parish will be appointed. 

We are delighted that the Revd Daniel McCarthy (Team Vicar, St Martin's, Shenley) has been appointed as Team Rector of the Aldenham, Radlett and Shenley Team Ministry.  We look forward to Daniel's enthusiastic leadership in the exciting and challenging times ahead.
