Update on the COVID-19 Guidance for our churches from the Saffron Walden Team Ministry:
It will be up to individuals to decide whether or not to wear masks.
If singing is allowed for the congregation, we will wear masks to sing.
Choirs won’t have to mask if they social distance and/or are 6 or less.
We will create a separate space in our churches for those who want to social distance.
Test and trace will continue.
We won’t share the common cup until, at least, spring. This is to see how winter affects the virus.
In the Camvillages churches we have two options for those unable to join us in person:
Great Chesterford will be live-streamed most Sundays (except iChurch on 3rd Sunday) and this can be watched live or watched later.
Wendens Ambo hold hybrid services with people able to join via Zoom. Email email@example.com
In addition, the main service from St Mary’s, Saffron Walden is often streamed via YouTube (except Family Services). Details are posted below

Giving to the church
A Letter from the Vicar:
As you probably know, our church building cannot be used for services at the moment because of the current pandemic. We are still trying to support the community by providing online services, pastoral care and linking with local support groups.
As the church buildings are not open we are not able to receive donations in the usual way. The church is NOT centrally funded but relies on the generosity of those who use the church and/or live in the parish. There are many bills to pay just to keep the church building running and, as there is no weekly collection, we need further help to pay the bills.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone but if you can spare something to support your local church then please contact your church treasurer or contact me (vicar.camvillages@gmail) if you would like further information or for your treasurers email address.
With love and best wishes,
