The Season of Eastertide
Plans for a return to in-person worship and moving to YouTube streaming
We have taken a measured and cautious approach over this past year with regard to worshipping indoors -- following the direction of the Bishop. With more people being vaccinated in NH each week and with better weather on the horizon, we are making plans to do the following:
- We are be moving from Zoom to YouTube live on Sunday May 2 at 10 a.m. with the visitation of Bishop Rob for confirmation. A worship link will continue to be sent out each Sunday morning. We encourage you to search for our channel on YouTube by typing "Christ Church Exeter, New Hampshire" (there are other channels similar). We invite you to also subscribe.
- Come May 9, we will offer an outdoor 8:00 a.m. Eucharist in the courtyard and continue throughout the summer. Bring your own chairs.
- Memorial Day weekend, on May 30, in addition to an 8:00 a.m. outdoor service, we will begin to offer indoor worship at 9:30 a.m. in the church. A summer congregation will have plenty of space to spread out and we can open windows and doors. More details to follow.
Of course should the data indicate a drastic increase in cases and risk, we will reassess the plan outlined above. Mark+
