St Mary's Church Charlbury with Shorthampton

First day back!

Services resumed in church today, 5 July. The first day back after lockdown for the 9.45 service had been well planned. It was organised, spaced and peaceful with a good number in attendance. Sally reassuringly led us in prayer, Richard played pieces on the organ although of course there was no singing. Worshippers were welcomed by handbell ringers outside the porch. It was deemed by the Oxford Diocesan Guild of Church Bellringers too risky yet to ring the church bells. The ringers were even met by applause!

Socially distanced service
