writing (28.1.21) congregation members are advised:-
• Numbers are limited so please obey the
Stewards and follow the one-way system.
• Please keep social distance (1 metre +)
and wear a face covering or mask.
• During the Mass, Holy Communion will be
brought to you in your place by the Priest or Eucharistic Minister. Please stand if you wish to receive, on the hand only with arms extended fully. No personal “Amen” is spoken.
• Music will be played by the organist. There is no singing except by the cantor.
• Track and Trace: please continue to give your details upon entry, some are bringing pre-completed forms which saves time. The Diocese are sorting out NHS QR posters for us to scan with our phones which, again, should speed things up.
Numbers in Church for regular Masses: keeping to 1 metre plus (including masks) as many as we can safely accommodate (households can sit together, maximum 6).
Baptisms: 10 persons. Weddings: 15 persons. Funerals: 30 persons.
For the time being the Sunday Mass obligation is suspended, so if you are not confident to come to public Mass with all the rules and regulations, don’t worry.
We are now live-streaming Mass from Our Lady’s in Corby – https://www.

Unless anything has changed (at time of writing we’re promised schools opening again at the beginning of March?), we’re still
not able to meet in church, so all our services and events are zoomed online. However, please do keep an eye on our website (www. to check if we are meeting, or zooming. In any event recordings of the services are available via our website (
Whether on zoom or in-church, the services planned for March will have the following themes and preachers:

On 21st March we welcome our missionaries from Thailand, Wit and Helen Boondeekhun.
Wit and Helen should have been in the UK to visit their sponsor churches, and should have been with us in person, but because
of the lockdown they have had to delay their trip here until later in the year. They will still be with us, leading the service via zoom.
Starting the last Sunday in January, we’ve been trying out a Sunday afternoon event called “TBC Connect”. Aimed at young people aged between 11 and 18, it is a time for them to meet together (online via zoom, for now!) and have fun, make friends and:
• learn about the Bible and how it applies directly to our lives
• ask questions & explore the Christian faith • encourage young people to consider
how to make a positive difference in their
homes, schools and communities
