*Next Month*

Depending on the direction taken by the government in the coming weeks, the
success of the roll-out of the vaccine – and the hope that there is not a
renewed spike of infections – we cautiously hope to begin services in
church again sometime in March. Watch this space…

*Accession of HM Queen Elizabeth II

*Today is the anniversary of the Accession of the Queen, and one of the
prayers used at the thanksgiving service seems quite fitting for our times:
*O GOD the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Saviour, the Prince
of Peace: Give us grace seriously to lay to heart the great dangers we are
in by our unhappy divisions. Take away all hatred and prejudice, and
whatsoever else may hinder us from godly union and concord: that, as there
is but one Body, and one Spirit, and one hope of our calling, one Lord, one
faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all; so we may henceforth be
all of one heart, and of one soul, united in one holy bond of truth and
peace, of faith and charity, and may with one mind and one mouth glorify
thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

*Our Survey Says…

*Last year the University of York St John surveyed 7,000 churchgoers as to
their reaction to the pandemic. It looks like the Powers That Be in the
Church of England are paying great attention to the results found last year
– so please can I encourage you to fill in the latest survey on the topic,
here .

On lighter matters, an Oxford postgrad is undertaking research on
‘*perceptions of congregational singing* *in the Church of England*’ with
particular reference to the lockdown period. Please do consider filling it
in, here .

With kind regards,

Stephen & Rosie
