A Message from our Minister

Dear friends,

The Deacons and I, as Trustees of the church have decided that we feel able to open the church for worship this coming Easter Sunday and Sundays following.  We have looked at local levels of infection and as much of the government and church guidance as possible and as a result feel that we can open.

This is by no means church back to normal yet, as we must insist that health and safety measures are adhered to in order to ensure that we can open and stay open.  In that regard there are a number of restrictions in place still:
 
  1. We must continue to ask that you wear a face mask at all times unless you have a medical exemption.
  2. Hand sanitiser (and track and trace) should be used as you are welcomed and as you leave.
  3. Indoors and outdoors we must keep to strict social distance measures (2 metres as much as possible).
  4. We can not yet return to congregational singing but will endeavour to do what we can to engage you in our worship together.
  5. After the service you must not congregate indoors and outdoors only in groups of up to 6 people, or two households (at distance) and the advice will still be that you don’t linger for too long.
  6. It really helps if you can tell us, week by week if you plan to be in the building! (as we did previously) - please email lbbchurchservice@gmail.com.

We recognise that for many this will be a welcome return and we will all be glad to see one another in person after such a long stretch, but please help us by following these guidelines and if I or a steward direct you in any way or remind you of any of the rules, please don’t be offended.

Hopefully if we can follow these rules for a short time then the road map and changing government and Baptist Together guidance will then ease gradually.

We know that the last while has been hard, but hopefully this news even if it feels like a half-measure will come as some kind of balm and a hope towards a better return to church as it should be.

For the foreseeable future we will continue to broadcast live on Zoom, so if you don’t feel able to return to the building just yet for whatever reason then please do join us anyway online. Please email us if you'd like to be added to our mailing list so that we can send you the Zoom meeting details.

Praying a blessing upon you today,
Nathan

Long Buckby Angels

Do you know anyone in Long Buckby that needs a little extra support? Or are you concerned about anyone in the village?

The Long Buckby Angels are here to help.

We are a team of volunteers who can help with e.g.
 

  • picking up shopping
  • posting mail
  • a friendly phone call
  • urgent supplies

If you think you or anyone else needs us then please either email us on longbuckbyangels@gmail.com or call us on 07594 316370 and leave a message.
 

Buckby Angels are collecting for those in our community that are really struggling.


We know this is a difficult time for everyone at the moment but we are asking for non perishable goods to be donated to help those that are vulnerable in the village. We know you can’t give much but even a tin of soup would be amazing. We are also taking monetary donations if it is something you would rather do. If you are interested in helping please drop any goods off to The Old Kings Head. Money can be placed in the charity box in Costcutters.

Street Pastors - Volunteers Needed

We have received the following message from Daventry Street Pastors. You can find out more about the national organisation on their website: www.streetpastors.org.

Daventry Street Pastors volunt

"For the last eight years Street Pastors have patrolled Daventry town centre and estates at weekends offering support to any one they meet. These volunteers from local Christian Churches who care about the community, have provided conversation, water, First Aid and their famous Lollipops; as well as defusing conflict and making the streets safer by picking up cans, glass and other potentially dangerous items. In the 12 months to 31st December 2017 the patrols interacted with 452 people.

Unfortunately due to retirement and ill health, the number of Street Pastors available for Patrols has reduced making it difficult for us to be on the street as often as we would like. In the last quarter of 2017 we were only able to put out seven patrols. Despite this we liaised with 112 people of both genders and different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

To continue to serve the community in Daventry as we would wish, more volunteers are essential. Street Pastors need to be good listeners and stay calm in tense situations. Street Pastors are blind to differences of all kinds between people and treat everyone they meet with equal respect and courtesy. Patrols are carried out on foot on Friday or Saturday evenings from 8.00 until about midnight. All Street Pastors are fully trained and provided with a uniform.

Anyone who is over 18 (there is no upper age limit) and want to know more about what it is to be a Street Pastor, may be able to join a team as an “Observer” and get some experience of what a patrol is like.

Anyone who would like to join a patrol or just wants some more information, should please leave their Name and Postal Address together with their Email address and/or telephone contact number with our Group Co-ordinator and Senior Street Pastor on either of the following:-

Email: daventrystreetpastors@gmail.com or

Telephone: 07474 545 785

We aim to respond within 48 hours. "
