This Sunday, instead of having our usual Mass in German, we will be celebrating Evening Prayer in German by Zoom at 4.00 pm. This will be followed by a time of fellowship and conversation in German.
The presence of the Coronavirus has made carrying on with our usual pattern of German services difficult, as we can no longer meet for Kaffee und Kuchen after the liturgy.
For October and November, our German Mass will simply be turned into a celebration of Evening Prayer in German online by Zoom. This removes the need for us to worry about how refreshments will take place as we will all be in the warmth of our own homes tuning in!

German Advent Carol Service
We will definitely attempt to celebrate our annual Advent Carol Service in German on Sunday 6th December in person at 4.00 pm in St Benet’s Church. We will try to have a much music a possible at this, but it is unlikely this will include congregational singing. This event will almost certainly have to be ticketed, to avoid overcrowding in our church. A verdict on whether this service is possible will be take closer to the time depending on public health guidelines issued by the government.
