The Church Inn in Ludlow rents a corner of the church yard for use as a beer garden. Just idly wondered about the possibility of a similar partnership with The Chequers when it opens?Image attachmentImage attachment

Great idea!!

Bearing in mind previous conversations about alcohol on church grounds I think it will be an interesting conversation.

Brilliant idea! Move with the times and make Holbeach Town centre interesting again.

Drinking with the dead. Raise the spirit.

Thank you to the 37 people, both old and new, who came to church this morning. We hadn't anticipated quite so many but our systems seemed to work. However we feel that 40 is perhaps our limit for the time being. It was an extraordinary moment for me to stand in front of everyone again after so long and to be able to lead our worship again.
Thank you, and thank God for the privilege.

So glad it went well. We really missed coming but it was wonderful that so many of the congregation stopped to say hello to us. Lynne and Alan

We would have loved to be there. Sadly cannot

It was very emotional - could not help thinking of the 60,000 who had died and our wonderful NHS. Praise God!!

Thanks to Rosamund and all her team for making it possible to worship together in church again. A very moving time for everyone.

Lots going on today in church. A final clean, gardening by the Saturday Gang, work on the north porch gates and a contractor's van undertaking some work on the Mary Bass Room floor. And flowers and cake for the workers! ... See MoreSee Less

Looking forward to seeing 25+ of you in church tomorrow morning for a shortened form of communion. Full instructions are on the pew sheet and will also be given verbally at the service.

Mick, Carol and I were in church this afternoon putting tape on the floor and markers on the pews in readiness for our first public service of Holy Communion this coming Sunday. It will be a low key trial service in order to assess that all our safety protocols work. If you would like to join us for this first service we need to know you are coming. 10 people have already signed up by email but would welcome up to another 10. Please email or leave a comment if you would like to join us. ... See MoreSee Less

I lit this candle today on behalf of someone who had lost a loved one and couldnt get to church themselves to light it. 
I thought it such a lovely photo that it needed to be shared.
So this is in memory of Susan but also an invitation to anyone who would like to light a candle in memory of someone. 
The church is now open for private prayer and the lighting of candles. Please take your own lighter or matches.

Rest in Peace Barbara. You found it difficult to find and accept love on this earth, may you be held in Gods eternal love for ever. You would have loved these flowers, all given by people who loved you and cared about you. Thank you for being in our lives and may God bless you for ever.

Today was the day we went back into church for the big clean up. All the pew runners and kneelers have been stashed away and all the floors, ledges and sills brushed and hoovered and the pews washed and sanitised.
The church will once again be opened for private prayer very early next week once we have finished a few bits and pieces and put up all the safety notices.
Watch this space.
Thank you to Mick, Sue, Carol Hellen, Andrea, Shane, Natalie Blanchflower, Sally, John, Dawn, Lynne, Clare, Kim and Hannah Buck for your help. It was so good to be alongside each other again.

**OUR SCHOOLS, STAFF and CHILDREN**

Before we post our resources for Sunday I wanted to post specifically about our local schools as they prepare to accept certain year groups back into school next week.

I have been popping into William Stukeley School from time to time – having a quick chat with the head from the door of his study and the staff from the door of the staff room. I have also been nipping up to HPA and standing in the foyer and chatting with whoever is in the office and taking both schools spare bread from the Community Larder to go into the Free School Meal packs and also a number of excess loaves plus a few other sell-by date items for the staff to enjoy. I think they have appreciated that, especially during what should have been half term, when the schools have still been in session as they were throughout the Easter period.

For the last few weeks they have been planning for the phased return of Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils this coming week. This has put their resources, ingenuity and their patience under a great degree of strain and will continue to do so for some time to come. It has required them to go against their deepest instincts about what is best for our children and creating a healthy and stimulating environment that is conducive to learning. It has also given them a not-inconsiderable concern for their own safety and that of their families.

Please pray for them all – Head-teachers, teachers, teaching assistants and other support staff have been doing a phenomenal job since the crisis began, not only teaching those children who have remained in school all this time, but also compiling work for those who are being home-schooled. They have been regularly ringing families to keep in touch to see how the children are getting on and visiting the homes of those they have particular concerns for. They have had to change their working practice pretty much at the drop of a hat and learn to work in very different ways, and have risen to the challenge for the sake of our children. We should all be very proud of them and very grateful for all they have done and will continue to do.

Please do pray for all our schools, staff and children over these coming weeks.

Thank you
