All Saints Church and Thurlaston Chapel Services- National Lockdown January 2021

Published on behalf and with permission of Rev Jerry Taylor and Peter Harrison:

Thurlaston Chapel:

We will only be holding the morning 10:30 worship service in the chapel, with the evening worship being online.

Which means the building is only used once in the day.

Our Covid mitigation's continue to be in place.

We've been able to have permission to use the school car park each Sunday from now on, which should drastically cut the number of cars parked on the road.

Warmest regards

Thurlaston Chapel:

All Saints Church:

As a church leader, I realise the weight of responsibility (and privilege) the government has given us in permitting us to stay open for public worship through the tier system and indeed, into this new lockdown.

We've thought extremely carefully in both Enderby and Thurlaston Parish Churches (I lead both) about how to respond to this. Context plays a big part.At Enderby, we have come to a collective view that, even with a Covid secure risk assessment in place, there were some challenges that some of us found too tough to meet to continue in-person services for now. In fact, our main service across the benefice (Enderby & Thurlaston both) will now be online for the time being.

However, given the small size of our congregation at Thurlaston, the space we have, the fact most of our members attend alone and their notably strong compliance to this point - especially with the 'no mingling between different households' rule - we have decided to remain open on Sundays at our usual time of 4pm for a shorter service.

Once again, let me thank you for all the parish council have done to serve us villagers in these testing times.

We pray for you regularly.

Do feel free to come back to me on any of this if you have questions.

With every good wish,


Rev Jerry TaylorVicar, Enderby with Lubbesthorpe & Thurlaston 01455 888679
