Around the Benefice
May she rest in peace and rise in glory
A table has been set up in each church with a Book of Condolence for tributes, there will also be a pen provided and a framed picture of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. (The books will be closed at 17:00 on the day after the funeral).
Where it is felt safe to do so votive candles will be available for those who wish to light a candle in Her Majesty’s memory.
For those who would like pastoral support the Ministry Team will be available. Please contact them in the first instance by telephone:
Licensed Lay Minister (Reader) Mrs Pam Thompson 01263 510319
Honorary Assistant Priest Revd Patricia Baggaley 01263 837490
Honorary Assistant Priest Revd Canon William Bestelink 01263 514045 or 07909 690073
Honorary Assistant Priest Revd Paul Yeomans 01692 773385
An appropriate space will be provided in each church for prayer and recollection, for those wishing to bring flowers, cards and toys with them to leave as a tribute. Flowers will be tendered to for as long as possible but will be removed on the evening after the funeral. Any cards and messages will be kept safe and incorporated into the Books of Condolence.
This Sunday, at our services, a two-minute silence for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be held at the beginning of the service and at the end of the service we will sing the National Anthem, “God Save our Gracious King”.
Out of respect to Her Majesty, the service of Hymns and Pimms at 6.00pm on Sunday 18 September at All Saints, Beeston Regis will be replaced with a Commemorative Evening Prayer Service.
If you have any concerns or queries, please speak to any members of the Ministry Team (contact details above).
Although not mandatory, you may wish to wear a face covering when attending Church to protect each other, and particularly those who are clinically vulnerable.
At the moment Communion will continue to only be given as bread, and the priests will continue the rigorous hygiene protocols that are in place including the wearing of a face covering when distributing the bread.
For those who feel that they would still prefer to join us from home, we will, for the present, continue to live-stream the weekly service from Holy Trinity, West Runton
SAFEGUARDING, HELP AND ADVICE
Safeguarding means protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of children and adults at risk of, or experiencing, emotional, psychological, physical or spiritual harm and/or neglect.
Safeguarding means enabling those who are affected to live safely, free from any kind of abuse or neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and reduce both the risks and actual experience of abuse in all of its forms.
We take safeguarding very seriously, at all of the Benefice Churches and care about all those we seek to serve within our churches and our communities.
We conform to the policy of Norwich Diocese which can be found at https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/about/safeguarding
If you believe that either yourself or someone you know may be at risk of harm or neglect, please contact Rev. Jeremy to discuss your concerns and what the next steps might be.
Alternatively, you may contact the Norwich Diocese Safeguarding Team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on: 01603 882345.
If you yourself or someone you know is in immediate danger of being harmed then please call 999 to be advised by the emergency services.
