Any dates given are provisional on the current rate of infections reducing.
Maggie & Jon Jones and myself have had a number of conversations and are happy to continue as ‘leaders / organisers’ of Open Door and agree that regular meetings, between 2 – 4pm on alternate Tuesday afternoons should resume, however we are acutely aware that, even with the Covid secure arrangements implemented at Hasbury the format of the sessions will need to be adapted to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone attending
We have decided not to ‘rush back’ and allow time during which the current high number of infections will hopefully reduce; at the same time assess how the reopening of Hasbury for other activities progresses
We are aiming to have a meeting between2 – 4pm on Tuesday 7 Decemberwhere we will offer mince pies and drinks (tea, coffee, etc.) - More details will follow nearer the date
Subject to it being ‘safe’ to do so we hope to be in a position to resume meeting regularly in the new year (2022) in the first instance probably as simple tea/coffee afternoons without guest speakers
Open Door is an important ministry of the Church and we will continue to hold the work and the leaders in our prayers. Peter Brown
