NEUCHATEL ENGLISH CHURCHJuly-August 2020

Dear Friends of Neuchâtel English Church,

While we are waiting for our normal services to resume at the end of the summer, I’d like to pass on an invitation that we’ve just received about a « virtual » service broadcast on ZOOM by the Anglican church in Europe on the instigation of Bishop Robert, next Tuesday evening (07/07/2020) at 18.30, central European time, to mark the gradual end of lockdown.

Please read the following letter for more precise details. You can also join the event via YouTube if you prefer; details are also given below. I’m sure it will be worth watching and listening to, even if it means once again sitting in front of your computer screen or looking at your smartphone!

We are tentatively thinking of holding our annual Neuchâtel picnic on Sun. 23rd August and the postponed AGM on 27th September. Full details of these events will be available on our website in due course. There you can also find information about retransmissions of e-services from All Saints, Vevey which will continue during the summer holidays.
We wish you all a happy and healthy summer!

Yours sincerely,
Ann Morel Huber and all members of the Church Council

Dear All, Invitation to join a Pan Diocesan Service on Zoom, July 7th 1830

One of the surprising but gratifying outcomes of the pandemic has been our ability to join the Diocese together in prayer using Zoom.  On Maundy Thursday for the renewal of ordination vows, at Pentecost focussed on our Churchwardens and across the Diocese focussing on Racial Justice we have worshipped together in a way that would have been thought unimaginable a few months ago.I would like to invite you all to a further special service to mark the next phase of our journey as edge out of ‘Lockdown’ in a variety of ways.  The CV19 lockdown has significantly affected all of us in our Chaplaincy and Diocesan life, with anxiety being present for us often alongside a sense of creativity and resilience. We each have different experiences of this time but as we now move out of lockdown across the Diocese, there will be a Diocesan wide act of worship (via zoom) to mark this moment.  

Our ‘Restoration Service’ will take place on Tuesday, 7th July beginning at 6.30pm CET. (please be in place on zoom from 1815).  You are invited to join on Zoom where there is room for you all. However I would like to extend the invitation to all Church Members to join on You Tube.  A link will be posted on the homepage of the Diocesan Website at https://europe.anglican.org/.  Please pass on this invitation to your communities.
