|New Government rules regarding Covid-19 and the Omicron variant mean that it is now a legal requirement to wear a mask in most indoor venues including places of worship for everybody aged 11 or over unless they are exempt. When attending worship at The Barn, please continue to wear a mask when you are not seated (including coming up for Communion). When you are seated, you may remove your mask for singing if you wish or if you feel uncomfortable during the service.|
Please note: until further notice, coffee will not take place after church. We hope very much for this to resume soon.

Advent has finally begun, and Christmas is lurking right around the corner. This year, our celebrations will include a service of Nine Lessons and Carols, which will take place on December 19th.
As the new Director of Music at the Barn Church, I would like to invite anyone who would like to be part of the choir for the Nine Lessons and Carols service to join – there is no age limit, as long as you would like to sing! The music will consist of familiar carols, as well as a few choir pieces, all at a fairly easy level.
The choir rehearses on Sunday evening from 18.00 to 19.00, until December 19th, and there will also be a rehearsal on the day of the service itself, where we will be joined by the Motleys for one of the carols. If you would like to join the choir for this, please send me an email, talk to me after Sunday service, or simply show up to one of our upcoming rehearsals.
I know Advent can be a very busy time for us all, but perhaps an hour of singing on a Sunday evening could be a moment of peace and respite amid all the stress.

We have just launched our 2021 Christmas Appeal!
The Vineyard Community Centre will continue to provide hot breakfasts, health services, showers and housing support for the homeless and those in crisis in Richmond this Christmas. It is more important than ever that we can guarantee our funding and help those in crisis across the borough.
Any donations received will go towards our services for those most in need.
Thank you and may God bless you this Christmas.
