Welcome to our October Newsletter. This is the time when we would normally be looking forward to our Harvest Festival Service and Jim’s auction of the produce. With the continuing news of Covid-19 and the rise in figures in the whole of France, your Council has decided to continue with online Services at least until the new year. Jacqui and all the CWL’s are planning both the Harvest Festival and the Remembrance Service as virtual Zoom Services. These are special events where both Stafford and Brenda will be contributing also.
We continue to thank Eddy in particular in making these events available. As an interim thank you on your behalf, St Michael’s took Eddy and Marion to lunch in the Brasserie of the Château d’Arpaillargues. They also had a bottle of Champagne to enjoy at home.
We at St Michael’s are no exception. As your Council we have thought long and hard. We have had meaningful discussions and are considering different possibilities. However the number of cases in France has increased substantially in the last weeks and at the moment shows no sign of abating.
We are meeting on a very regular basis to further explore our options. Unfortunately we do not yet believe we can offer safe Services. We will continue to keep you up-to-date with developments.
Eddy and Marion continue to provide a Zoom Service every two weeks. This is not something that suits everyone but it is a safe alternative. We thank them for this personal initiative to which so many of our congregation attend plus some of our friends in the UK too.
We as your Council are always available to help or for just a chat. Our contact details are shown on the contact us dropdown menu.
