The Church Council has decided to give £2000 from the Education Fund to the School to help with computers for home learning during the present health emergency. It is required that all schools are able to teach children from home and not all homes have the necessary technology. This grant is designed to help fill that gap.
Churches are open all day for private prayer.
- 9.30am: Eucharist at Saint Giles to be filmed for uploading to YouTube.
- 10.55am: Remembrance Service at Holloway War Memorial.
- 11am: Act of Remembrance at Pic Tor War Memorial.
- 3pm: Remembrance Service at Parkhead by invitation only. Matlock Town Council will be live-streaming the service on their Facebook Page.
During the ‘lockdown’ Fr Mark uploaded videos of Morning and Evening Prayer as well as Eucharists held in private on our behalf. He intends to repeat this during November. The introductory video can be seen below. You can see the videos on Facebook or subscribe to the YouTube Channel. The YouTube Channel can be found by clicking here.
If during this time you are worried that something bad is happening to someone you know, such as a neighbour, a local child or a friend, please remember you can ring our Safeguarding Officer, Joan Link, who will take action if this is necessary. Joan’s number is 01629 593993. You can leave a message if she is out in the garden or walking.
