TO KNOW GOD AND TO MAKE GOD KNOWN
Latest update from Rev Elaine:
St Laurence will continue to open for Private Prayer: Monday – Thursday each week, 10am – 4pm. Sunday services: 8am – said Eucharist 10am - Eucharist
We continue to follow Church of England guidelines closely, accepting that there will be restrictions in place for quite some time to come. Current advice is that face coverings must be used in church. As you probably all know by now, seating in church has been re-arranged to comply with Social Distancing requirements, reducing numbers who can attend. To help us to manage this, please contact Betty Rutter: email@example.com or phone her after 10am if you would like to reserve a place at next week’s service. (Please do so by Friday evening at the latest)
SUNDAY SERVICES ON CD AND ONLINE WILL CONTINUE FOR THE TIME BEING.
Many thanks for your continued prayers, patience and support as we ease our way safely out of lockdown.
Father, during this time of uncertainty may your Church be a sign of hope, comfort and love to all.
Grant peace, grant comfort, grant healing.
Be with us, Lord. Amen.

In preparation for the PCC AGM which will be held on the 13th October, the Electoral Roll of St Laurence Church is currently being updated. The Roll is the list of people who are members of the church family. Members are able to attend and vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting where questions are raised on matters of parish and general church interest and where the Parochial Church Council is elected. It is an opportunity to contribute to what happens at St Laurence Church.
Forms will be available in church from the 6th September for anyone who is not currently on the register but who would like to be so. A form can also be downloaded from the link below.. Completed forms should be emailed to saintells@gmail. com or left in the box file at the back of church or given to our Vicar, one of the Church Wardens or to our Electoral Roll Officer, Gail Fullbrook.
If you are uncertain whether you are on the current roll, which was completely renewed in 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring Gail to check.

The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it. We give to our church in a variety of ways, but with the closure of our building we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now.
Each year we support a different charity and fundraise for them. Sometimes it is an overseas charity and sometimes it is a local or national charity.
This year we are supporting the local charity Stick 'n' Step.
St Laurence Frodsham takes it duty and obligation to protect all, extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding.
