As of 5 May the House of Bishops’ gave limited access to church buildings for activities such as streaming of services or private prayer by clergy in their own parishes).This is an offering from St Mary Magdalene to the congregations of the Richmond Team and the wider community.St Mary Magdalene has re-opened for private prayer. The Church will be open:Saturday 10:00 – 12:00Sunday 14:00 – 16:00CHURCH COLLECTION (OFFERTORY)Unfortunately, with our churches closed, and therefore no cash collections at services, and with all groups who would normally use our church buildings also on lockdown, we are experiencing a significant drop in income. We have taken steps to reduce the Team expenditure by placing a number of staff on furlough and will continue to look at other ways of cost saving. We are hugely grateful to so many who continue to make their weekly or monthly contribution to the finances of the Team, by standing order or direct debit. However if anyone would like to make a donation to the work of our churches this can be done at https://givealittle.co/campaigns/5260a080-4ee0-49b6-a1c3-d552ef9a0700 Whilst this is a challenging time for many, financially as well as emotionally, I hope we can continue to count on your support for the work of our 3 churches. THANK YOU
