"We are a family of faith and hope, linked by mutual concern with a desire to serve. We are regularly praying for the people of Hampton Hill and beyond and are here to help."
Week beginning Sunday 23 October
As with the rest of the country, infections are rising in London and authorities continue to remind us that we should be cautious. However we believe that with some 'baseline' precautions in place we do not need to require worshippers to wear masks any longer, although we still encourage wearing them in indoor spaces where you come into contact with people you don't norally meet.
- please cleanse your hands on entry
- please sit on every other row as marked out
- when singing, do not sing loudly!
- when moving around the building please keep a distance
- we will continue not to physically share the peace, and at communion receiving the wine is optional (please do not kneel touching the rail)
- we will keep windows and doors open - draughts are a good thing!
- welcomers and ministers will wear masks when close to others
- ministers will cleanse hands etc for best hygiene

This week's nugget: There are good reasons to think that climate change measures would not all be about losing out.
Reducing consumption of red and processed meat and eating more fruit and vegetables would increase average life expectancy by about eight months, as well as reducing deaths from heart disease, stroke and cancer.
Better-insulated homes would cut the 50,000 deaths a year linked to cold temperatures, and greater physical activity through increased cycling and walking would improve health and could save the NHS £17 billion over 20 years.
