We journey into the new year with some degree of optimism that Covid won’t destabilise as last year. Caution is still asked of us, especially in church. Please, do support our marvellous stewards by abiding by the very basic requirements. The one metre distance must be maintained and being seated at all times is most helpful. Please do not heed what other churches may be doing if a more relaxed approach is taken. We have a duty of care. Thank you. And speaking of thanks, can I use this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness to me over Christmas. The gifts, the cards, all deeply appreciated. As I was in Scotland for the wonderful wedding of Paddy Reilly-O’Donnell and Cecily Walker, I didn’t get the chance to wish you all a peaceful new year, so let’s pray that, above all, it will be moving to a post-Covid year.
