[ X ]Notice from the Acting Chair of the Lisbon Chaplaincy CouncilSunday Services in the coming weeksThe Church Council met on 16th June to discuss issues relating to the reopening of our churches for Sunday services. Unanimous concern was expressed with regard to continued outbreaks of Covid 19 in the Lisbon region, particularly considering the wide area from which our congregations are drawn and the need for some of our members to use public transport. There are also fears for the consequences of the resumption of international travel in July. Bearing this in mind, we have made provisional arrangements for locum cover from the second Sunday in September. However, the Church Council will meet again in mid-August to reappraise the situation. Accordingly, the Council agreed to go on with live streaming of Sunday services at 09h30 until early September. Rev. Ian Eglin will continue to transmit the Eucharist service up to the end of July. Rev. Chris Welsh, who was our locum for quite a long period last year, has agreed to continue this for a number of weeks following. We are extremely grateful to them both.We realise, nevertheless, that this arrangement may come as a disappointment to those of you who feel the need to receive communion in person and who value the fellowship of the body of Christ in actual meeting. The Council’s priority, however, is the health and safety of all. David CranmerActing Chair of the Chaplaincy Council26th June 2020
