Welcome to the Church of St John The Evangelist, Burgess Hill
“We exist to worship God and in the name of Jesus Christ, to reach out and share with everyone, his life and his love”
Dear Church Family,
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. Following on from the announcements made by the Government and the Church of England this week we are writing to let you know what will be happening at St John’s as restrictions are lifted on 19th July.
The Prime Minister’s message was one of caution and this is reflected in the advice from the C of E. We are also mindful of the fact that many of you are understandably nervous about what the coming weeks hold. For this reason, our Sunday services will be ticketed for the foreseeable future with a gradual increase in the number of seats available only when local infection rates suggest it is safe to do so.
Communion will continue to be in one kind only, the peace will be shared in a “non-contact” way and congregational singing will be postponed for a short time.
Following the advice of the Chief Medical Officer we will require people to wear a face covering (unless they have an exemption). Professor Whitty has said, “We wear our masks for others, not ourselves” – it protects them and makes them feel more comfortable. Hand sanitiser will be available in Church and we would encourage its use.
We will continue to take “Track and Trace” details at all services and events which have not been booked through ticketsource.
The following services are currently offered:
SUNDAYS 10am – Sung Eucharist
Please book tickets on Ticket Source (August will be loaded very soon):
Ticketsource – book your Sunday tickets here
f you are unable to book your own ticket, please contact one of us and we will book it for you.
WEDNESDAYS 10.30am – Holy Communion (said)
You do not need to book in advance, however contact details will be taken at the door.
We are, as ever, very grateful to our visiting clergy without whose support and faithful commitment to St John’s none of this would be possible.
Please do contact one of us if you would like more information.
Stay safe & God Bless.
Colin & Liz
