May Letter from Rachel

Hello CMC Friends,

Well, we are starting to see some changes, with things opening up again, and the High Street looking almost as busy as it did before Covid (on the days with beautiful weather, anyway)!

Having said this, I know many of us are probably starting to really yearn to be back in our Church building for worship and activities, and we can take comfort in knowing that isn’t too far away. However, I just want to reiterate that, as a Church, we committed to keeping our building closed for worship throughout May, along with Circuit Guidance.

However, our first in-person service will be the 6th of June, and what an exciting moment that will be! We will truly celebrate that day, and even more-so when we’re able to meet again without the need for masks and distance! Can you even imagine that after all this time?

Also, I wanted to let you know that the Stewards have decided that, for the month of May, we will only open the Church for private prayer on Wednesday afternoons. This is simply because no one has come in on a Sunday afternoon since we began opening for private prayer, though several have come in on Wednesdays. We do hope that some of you have been able to take joy in being in our sacred space and having moments of prayer and meditation there.

I know we’re all ready for all of this to be behind us. We may not be there yet, but we’re headed in the right direction.

Blessings to all of you in this time.
With love and in Christ,
Rev. Rachel
