Season’s Greetings to Friends of Daglingworth Church

Dear parishioners and friends of The Holy Rood, Daglingworth. The church wardens and PCC would like to send greetings and warm wishes to you all.

2020 has been a year like no other in most of our memories and one that most of us would like to forget. All of us will have spent time in isolation away from our families, missed holidays, weddings and parties and in some cases lost loved ones and friends. 

Whilst for much of the time this year our church building has been closed, we have been fortunate to get together weekly to worship via zoom, with friends old and new from across the Benefice. We have also had several services from the building itself which we have been able to zoom out. We even had a short but poignant remembrance service from the graveyard. All these services have been very well attended, changing our pre-Covid average attendance from 12 to 20, which is excellent.

As most of our giving is via direct debit through the Parish Giving scheme, we haven’t lost too much income. So, thank you very much to all that contribute to the church here in Daglingworth, it is really appreciated. That being said, having the building closed for most of the time does not reduce the running costs. In fact, as we write, we are awaiting urgent repairs to the roof to stop the rain coming in.

On a festive note, we plan to have a Carol service on 20th December at 3:30pm led by Rev Dr Julie Nelson. The service will be in the graveyard extension, so while it will hopefully be Covid safe, it will likely be cold, so everyone is encouraged to wrap up warm and perhaps bring along a warm festive drink. Also, on Christmas Day we plan to have a short lay led service again in the churchyard extension at 11.00am. Do, of course bring your phone / ipad to follow the services which will be sent out in advance.

 If you would like to attend either of these services, please contact Judy Abbott on judyabbott2003@hotmail.com to ensure a place is available.

Season’s greetings and best wishes from the PCC of the Holy Rood, Daglingworth.
