Loxbeare October Round Up

It is good that children & young people are able to attend school, college & universities again & many people have gone back to work. We hope & pray this will continue & not be affected by the restrictions tightening again & that Church services will still be able to be held.

We trust & pray that everyone is keeping safe & well and have been able to get out a bit more in the last few weeks.  We are still very grateful for all who have & some still are looking out for others & helping as & when needed, especially now if some will again not feel comfortable to go out shopping etc with more people testing positive.

At the time of writing we are enjoying a few days of lovely weather again before the autumn really sets in.

On the 6 September, with a very limited number, group communion service was held in the Church & we have also held one outdoor service - social distancing.

The annual church meeting, postponed from earlier in the year is now planned for 8 October, by telephone.

Anyone wishing to have a private prayer in the Church, contact Carol Radford on 01884 881480 so that she can open up & she will need to take names & addresses.

We pray for those who have had operations that they will continue to improve everyday & also remember those who are feeling unwell, receiving treatment, or waiting for operations/appointments.

We wish a very Happy Birthday to Margaret Tidball who will be celebrating a special birthday in November & for all with birthdays in October & November & also to those celebrating special occasions.  Many have been disappointed not to be able to celebrate as planned or hoped for but maybe in the not too distant future this will be able to take place with family & friends.

Our congratulations to Jean on the birth of a grandson, Freddie Thomas, born to Antonia & Ben Guscott.  We send our best wishes to them all.

We have had three social events taken place outdoors, social distancing e.g car treasure hunt & BBQ, but further events will have to be put on hold for the time being.

So, let us continue to remember frontline workers, especially the medical staff & carers & pray for their safety.  May this current spike be short lived & we will once more be able to share & socialise with others again.
