COVID 19

Due to the pandemic church activities inside the building are currently suspended but the church community is still active, working, praying and caring for Heanor.

We've borrowed some encouragement from Oxford Diocese.

Community Fair
Not meeting for the time being

 

Heanor Community Fair is held on the 1st Saturday of every month, from 9am through to 1pm in the Church. 

 

At each Fair, there are around 30-40 different stalls, many run by local people, but the popularity of the Fair has meant that we can attract a few traders from outside the Heanor area to help boost the multitude of crafts and trades.    

 

There are refreshments to purchase from the church kitchen, and there are usually a few stalls selling cakes and pies etc. So have a browse around the stalls, chat with the friendly stallholders, then grab a cuppa and a bite to eat and sit and have a rest before going back to get a few bargains...
 

Coathangers Youth Club
Not meeting for the time being

 

Coathangers Youth Group is the longest running and most successful youth group for the 7-11 year olds in this area.

 

Our aim is to offer every young person the oppertunity to participate in a fun, yet healthy activity that they enjoy, within a safe and supporting enviroment.

To stay connected in the meantime please follow us on Facebook, for weekly sermons, prayers, music and other encouragement. If you want to join us please make contact with the Vicar via our contact page.

COVID UPDATE

The PCC discussed the provision of services following the Harvest service on the 4th October.

Those who felt comfortable to have been able to meet in the church building during August & September, with other members of the congregation joining on Zoom. This has been possible by having multiple external doors open to ensure good ventilation to help to minimise the risk of Covid transmission. However, the weather is getting colder and with the infection rate increasing closing the doors (and thus removing the source of fresh air) seems very unwise. We also have heaters which warm the air and blow it out into the worship space – the Churchwarden Team believe this could distribute any infectious material in the air and add to the risk. It is also not feasible to meet with the doors open as it would be extremely cold and uncomfortable. Therefore, the PCC have taken the decision to ask the Bishop for permission not to hold services in Church after the 4th October. This will be reviewed regularly, but it is unlikely that in church services will be able to resume until the weather is warmer.

We understand that some people may be disappointed about this – but the PCC believe that this decision will be the safest and most appropriate way forward.

From the 11th October we will resume Bible study/services on Zoom followed by Zoom Coffee and Chat.

We will also look at other ways of keeping in touch and keeping worshiping together until we are able to use our building once again.
