Church services resume in King's Lynn

Sixteen weeks after the last public service, and more than fourteen weeks since the Prime Minister announced the nationwide lockdown, church services resumed in King's Lynn yesterday (5 July).

St. Peter's Church in West Lynn, and All Saints' Church in South Lynn, both held their usual Masses at 9am and 11am respectively, with a good turnout at each church, in spite of the restrictions on singing, refreshments, and social distancing, that were in place to ensure that worshipers could attend safely.

Canon Adrian Ling, Rector of St. Peter's and All Saints', preached the sermon at the two masses, in which he spoke of the joy of returning to worship, and of the invitation by Jesus, heard in the Gospel reading of the day, to come to him to lay down our burdens.

Fr. Joshua Bell, Assistant Curate of St. Peter's and All Saints', said:

"It was a great joy to gather as our church family across our two churches, to greet each other, and most importantly to receive the Eucharist together."
