Sunday Services and Private Prayer
Join us on YouTube at 10:30am
The Sunday online (YouTube) service starts at 10.30am, but why not join us from 10.15 so that you can greet other members of the congregation via YouTube Live Chat and hear some wonderful organ playing! The online service is also available to catch up later. Links are added to the website a day in advance.
Join us in Church at 10:30am
The 'in-person' service at St Olave's has now returned to a 10.30am start time. The format of the service remains the same as we have been having at 9am, so still some way from the normal pre-pandemic service. At the same time, the online service continues to be available on YouTube from 10.30am each Sunday for the next few weeks. It is now possible for up to 6 people from different households to sit together in church. When you arrive at church, please indicate to the people at the door whether you are happy to sit with someone else or whether you would prefer to remain in a single household pew. There is no pressure to sit with anyone if you would prefer not to. You will find hand sanitiser at the door and are requested to either sign in with the Test and Trace App or leave your details on a list of attendees. Unless you are exempt, please wear a face covering. At the end of the service we ask the whole congregation to leave the building promptly and gather for chats in the churchyard rather than inside. Thank you for your understanding and support.
