Welcome

Welcome to the website for the churches of
St Mary’s Clymping,
St Mary’s Yapton
and St Andrews Ford.


 

Service times are on the services page but see the latest newsletter for the details of our in-person services planned.

With the lifting of the government covid restrictions, the guidance from the Church of England is that each parish should consider local factors and make their own decisions on how best for themselves to proceed.  We will be continually reviewing our own guidance and publish accordingly but regardless of our guidance, we should remember the overriding need for RESPECT.
RESPECT those around us, RESPECT the environment we are in and RESPECT for ourselves.
The virus is still with us and spreading.
Let's make decisions to stay safe and be wise!

Previous newsletters and information will be posted to the 'Archive' page.

Updated advice on Coronavirus
Our main concern at all our services in December in the Benefice is to prevent ruining your Christmas plans with illness or self-isolating. 

We ask everyone to wear a mask.


We will try and keep a balance between warmth and fresh air, so you might want to keep your coats on.

If you want to keep an appropriate space between you and any one sitting next to you, please put a kneeler in the pew. This will indicate 'please don't sit here!'.

During Christmas, some of our services might get busy (particularly our Christmas Eve services at Yapton and Clymping). We are looking at how to best handle these but it would be really helpful if you felt able to take a Lateral Flow Test before coming. 

Visiting the Church Office: If you wish to visit the Church Office in person, please email first to book a time to visit in advance, thank you.

December Events!
Come along to our festive coffee morning on 3rd December in St Mary's Church Yapton. See our Events page for more information

Christmas Fair CANCELLED!
Sadly due to a rise in Coronavirus cases locally we have decided to cancel the Church Christmas Fair we had planned for 18th December.

Obviously as a result of the prolonged lockdowns and the disruption to our Church services, our income will now reduce considerably. Unfortunately, however, the majority of our expenses still need to be paid, and we see ourselves called to serve more in these tough times.

Could we please encourage those of you who normally contribute via weekly envelopes or cash into the collection, to think about whether you could continue to contribute, but via different means, namely either by direct payment from your bank, or if not by perhaps sending a monthly cheque.

If you need to set up a standing order with your bank, then for Clymping church it’s:
PCC of St.Marys Clymping, sort code 40-52-40, account number 00016271
For Yapton and Ford it’s:
Yapton with Ford PCC, CAF Bank sort code 40 52 40, account number 00016631
If you would like to send a cheque, please make it payable to PCC of St.Marys Clymping, and send to 23 West Close, Middleton-on-Sea, PO22 7RP.
Or Yapton with Ford PCC, send to 32 Goodhew Close, Yapton BN18
Thank you very much in advance for any contributions you can make.
