The anniversary of the first lockdown will be marked by a National Day of Reflection when we are encouraged to acknowledge grief and loss over the past year. To mark this day, we will:

  • extend the opening times of St Mary with St Alban for private prayer from 8.30am to 8.30pm for you to light candles and place flowers
  • hold our Morning and Evening Prayers at church with special prayers and also online with password 014549 using a phone app called Daily Prayer that provides all the text for the appointed psalm and readings
  • ring the church bell at 12noon with prayers livestreamed
  • allow floral tributes to be placed around the tall memorial cross in the churchyard.
