UPDATES

This is where you can find details of extra events beyond our usual Sunday Services.

COVID 19

Our church buildings are now open each day once more and Sunday services continue again in each parish. 

We are singing again, and delighted to feel that the things that feel precious are returning to our regular experience.

But we are still being a little careful.

Masks are no longer compulsory when you come into church - but if there are more than a few people gathered in a building, feel free still to wear them if you like so that all might feel safe. If you struggle with masks or just can't wear them, then please come anyway without one and know that we are thrilled you are here.

Importantly: we are no longer keeping every other pew empty so that there is some built-in distancing kept for now. So if you want to build in a little distancing when you come, just put a scarf or a bag next to you and people will respect your space. We understand that some people want to fill our churches, especially at key life points, but our aim is to keep everyone safe and well. At very large services we may well request that all wear masks. 

For details on how all of this affects baptisms and weddings and funerals, contact the church wardens. Please do join us Sunday by Sunday as we gather again as God's family in this place, to worship, to pray, to sing and to give thanks together.

And...

If at any time you are lonely or under the weather or grieving or struggling, let us know, so we can make sure you are prayed for. We are not alone. Each one of us is precious, loved by God and cared for by our whole Christian community.

Diary Updates
Steeple Aston Building Project

For now, our building project is on hold. Thanks to a lot of hard work and generosity we have excellent plans in place, and the PCC and wardens very much believe in both the value and necessity of our project. We are grateful to everyone who has helped us work on the project to date. 

 

Through it all, we started with six principles:

Access - we want anybody and everybody to have good and easy access to the whole church and across the churchyard. 

Better heating - a warm church shouldn’t be rocket science in this day and age, and if we can do something to introduce renewable energy, so much the better.

Toilets - whether you are young or old or somewhere in between, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect a public building to have decent toilet facilities. 

Hospitality - we want simple hospitality facilities so we can foster fellowship after church, put on decent concert interval drinks, host a small cafe midweek. A church is about loving God and caring for people; hospitality somewhere near the centre of church life.

Children - we need a specific space for our children’s church within our own building so that children know they matter here. 

Flexible space - much loved as our victorian pews are, the lives of people in our village today matter more. We want space so we can worship in different ways, have more concerts, welcome the school regularly, find a place where the PCC can meet or watch a midweek cafe thrive. Maybe Sustainable Steeple might make use of the building; maybe we’ll have a Heritage Corner with a permanent display about the Steeple Aston Cope bringing visitors to the village.

We maintain hope that the six aims we have always had will somehow be met so that we can serve our community better.
