Coronavirus Covid-19 Crisis - SCAMPTON CHURCH UPDATES

(26th March 2020)

Scampton Church continues to be alive and active, but our building must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

Scampton Church e mail newsletter will now be published weekly. You can subscribe by e mailing info@scamptonchurch.org

A community self help page has been launched on Facebook. CLICK HERE to access it.

Scampton Parish Council is also offering assistance. CLICK HERE to access it

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

With the recent Government and Church of England advice, it is with some sadness that I have to say that we will now be cancelling all of our services and meetings for some weeks to come. With Easter just around the corner I know that this will come as a great disappointment to many of you. We are hoping to work with other community partners in Scampton in an  effort to provide more help and assistance where necessary. We will publish what is happening on this page in due course.

New Family Communion Service

Our new family communion service builds on the success and popularity of our monthly family service and will take a similar format.
ie INFORMAL, INCLUSIVE, INTERACTIVE, FRIENDLY, FUN AND FREE!

It was first introduced earlier this year and by the Rt. Revd. David Court Bishop of Grimsby . Its now a regular monthly service at 4pm on the third Sunday of the month. This means that we will have two family services a month at Scampton that are modern, unstuffy, easy going and family friendly.

We want children to be welcomed and valued equally, not excluded from this key element of worship, however children must be 7 years or over and be Christened/Baptised.

Questions!
Q: Who in the church can I discuss this with?    A: Contact Sue info@scamptonchurch.org
Q: What is Communion?    A: Come to the session on the 17th February and find out. In simple terms it is a thanksgiving for Gods gift of Jesus to everyone.
Q: Is my child too young to understand?     A: Experience over the years in the Church of England has shown that children of 7 years and over have sufficient maturity and understanding to participate in Communion.
Q: What if my child is not baptised/christened?     A: This is not a problem. In most cases,  your child can be baptised/christened before the next service.
Q: Don't I have to wait until until my child is confirmed before they can take communion? A: No - The Church of England now allow for children to take communion with the local Bishops permission, and preparation beforehand.
Q: As an adult I'd like to know more myself. How do I do that?     A: Why not come along to the next Alpha Course at Scampton.
