FORTHCOMING APCM: SUNDAY 18TH OCTOBER

The Rev'd Ruth Barr gives notice of the Annual Parochial Church Meeting of the Parish of North Mymms at 11.30am on Sunday 18th October 2020.  All members of the church who are on the  Church Electoral Roll are eligible to attend.  This meeting will be held via Zoom and Electoral Roll members will be sent the link in advance of the meeting.

Please note: the church service will be held at 9.30am on Sunday 18th October and there will be no Zoom service that day.

ALL SOULS SERVICE: SUNDAY 1ST NOVEMBER

The annual All Souls Service is much appreciated by all those who have lost and wish to remember loved ones. Sadly current government restrictions severely limit the number of people that can be accommodated in church and so the difficult decision has been made that this year Revs Ruth and Penny will conduct the service in church without a congregation. The service will be pre-recorded and made available online. The focus of the service will be to remember and pray for loved ones including those who have passed away, had a memorial service or burial of ashes in the last two years. The link will be available here on the day. One of the highlights of the service is the lighting of candles which are then placed on the altar so the suggestion is that you light a candle at 4.00pm on Sunday 1st November and put it in the window perhaps with this short prayer:

“Loving God be with me on this special day of remembering. Thank you for all those who have shaped our lives but whom we no longer see. Help us to remember them well and trust that they are at peace with you. Amen”

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY: 8TH NOVEMBER

On November 8th 2021, St Mary's Church, North Mymms will be holding a Parish Communion at 9.30am. Due to current government guidelines, we can safely allow only 43 people to worship inside the building. We have asked  those who would like to attend to let our parish office know by Thursday Nov 5th at the latest and to provide track and trace details which will be retained for 21 days after the 8th. (phone 01727 825578 ).

After the service, at approximately 10.45am, a limited number of people will then attend the war memorial where wreaths will be laid, the names of our local fallen heroes from WWI & WWII will be read out, the Last Post and Reveille will be played and prayers will be said.  There will be fewer than normal representatives of organisations at the War Memorial. If other people wish to attend, they will be asked to socially distance from others, to stay in groups of no more than six and not to mingle with others, even though we are outdoors. 

There will be no Zoom service that day.
