Churches due to re-open in August
On 8th June, the Standing Committee of St. Francis met to consider the re-opening of our church services.
After a lengthy discussion, taking into account the Bishop's guidelines, FEREDE and our Roman Catholic hosts, we decided that in the best interests and safety of all we would resume our services on the first Sunday of August.
For those of you who will still be in the island we look forward to seeing you at that time.
Short service and pastoral letter
Reverend John Poole’s latest pastoral letter also contains a short service that you can use at home - it is here.
Short service - live video stream
There will be a live act of worship at 12 noon each Sunday during the lockdown, hosted by Reverend Rachel Ganney and Canon Ron Corne. It will be available on the Tenerife (and others) Virtual Church Facebook group (click here to join it) and also on YouTube. The stream will be live from 11:45 and the service will start at 12.
Preparations are well in hand for our service on Sunday, during which we will hear the parable of the sower. You will be able to find the service on YouTube at https://youtu.be/jX1DayfmXHA on the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/564485441080665/ on this website and on the website www.TenerifeVirtual.church. The service sheet can be found at www.TenerifeVirtual.church/servicesheet.pdf
If you'd like to join in with the agape meal part of the service please be ready with something similar to bread and wine and please do get in touch at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to get involved in any way.
We look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
