    Restore the fallen in our world and in our hearts

    Strengthen the merciful in our world and in our hearts

    Heal the broken in our world and in our hearts

    Uplift the lowly in our world and in our hearts

    Erase division in our world and in our hearts

    Create a Christ-guided humanity in our world and in our hearts

    And use us to make it so. In Jesus’s Name. Amen.

    Dear colleagues

    As we are sure you will know, the Rule of Six came into force on Monday this week, which made it illegal for groups of more than six people to meet, unless covered by exemptions.

    The good news is that exemptions to the rule include places of worship - making it possible for more than six people to gather for acts of communal worship. Areas also covered by exemptions to the rule include work, children’s activities and charitable services. However, it is important to note that this is not a blanket exemption for any activity in a place of worship.

    Given the exemptions and the excellent work you have all done by introducing social distancing measures to our churches to make them safe places to worship, the new rule is unlikely to mean significant changes for most of us at the moment. The national church has updated its main guidance page, here, has updated many of the FAQs to reflect the new rule, and has some new material - notably a new FAQ "How does the new 'Rule of Six' affect church services?” and a section entitled 'Key Principles’. Do please have a look! Over the coming days the Recovery Group, led by the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally, will continue to update the detailed guidance documents. These documents are really quite detailed and specific, and are a mine of information - so really worth visiting them to refresh your memory on the existing guidance or to see how any new rules might affect you and your churches.

    The intention is to limit the spread of the virus by minimising close physical contact as much as possible. When deciding whether to proceed with an activity, depending on local circumstances, please bear this principle in mind.

    Thank you for all you continue to do. We share your sadness at not being able to meet together in person as frequently or in such numbers as we used to do. We miss the singing too! But we also acknowledge that we need to keep responding positively and prayerfully to the new and different challenges as they arise, in the knowledge that these things will help us to stay safe until such a time as we can get back to a more normal routine.

    For those of you who have been enjoying the High Cross, all-ages worship on Facebook Live on Sundays, this week it is the turn of Patrick Gilbert and his family who will be looking at the theme of wrestling - from Genesis. We hope to see you there at 9.30am on Sunday.

    As ever, if there are people who are on this distribution list but who do not receive emails, we would be grateful if you could pass any information that might be relevant to them. Thank you!

    Kind regards,

    Audrey Elkington
    Archdeacon of Bodmin
