Anglican worship in Geneva

CORONAVIRUS – UPDATE PAGE, RESOURCES, NEWS


‘As we re-open the church for worship, although retaining the online option, and are delighted that many of our congregations are gradually returning, several members of the congregation have raised the question of those not yet vaccinated.  

‘Vaccination is recommended by the WHO and the medical profession as the best way of containing the virus and its mutations, of which the Delta variant is gaining ground in Geneva.  We would like to encourage anyone who is not yet vaccinated to consider doing so in order to protect themselves and the other members of the congregation, some of whom are especially vulnerable. In this way we can all return to worshipping together safely. If you have any concerns or questions, please do consult your doctor’.

Please let the office know if there are other things we could usefully add. Also check out the HTC Facebook page and Twitter @GenevaAnglican for latest news.

New Information about Midweek Services

A note from the Chaplain
Mid-Week Communion Services
We are now holding midweek services of Holy Communion on Wednesdays and Thursdays and I thought it would be helpful to let you know the details of the arrangements for both days;
On Wednesdays, we will hold a Service of Holy Communion at 10.00am online which will be led on some weeks by Canon Alan Amos and on others by me. We will have some BCP and some Common Worship services and the pattern for each month will be as follows:
 
Week 1     Common Worship                 (DG)
Week 2     Book of Common Prayer      (AA)
Week 3     Common Worship                (AA)
Week 4     Book of Common Prayer     (AA)
Week  5    Book of Common Prayer     (DG)     This will be just in the months when there are 5 weeks, for example as in this current month of June.
 
On Thursdays, we will have a service of BCP Holy Communion in church at 10.00am.  We will use a standard Order of Service which can be used each week and the readings and collect and prayer list for the week will be available on a separate sheet.
I hope that this will provide good variety in our worship and the opportunity for as many people as possible to access our services of Holy Communion during the week.  We are on a journey together in our worship, particularly as we begin to hold more services in church whilst maintaining some online services and we will review this regularly.  Your feedback and comments are always welcome.
Yours in Christ
Daphne

CORONAVIRUS SUPPORT NETWORK

In these unprecedented and unsettling times, we need to support each other. We have a large number of people who would love to help others and we must have people who would love some help or telephone company.

We need to collect information on 2 sets of people; (i) those of us who are able & willing to help and (ii) those of us who need help. We can all help, even if you are staying safe at home, you could offer to keep in touch with people by telephone.

Can I please ask you to reply if you are able and would like to do any (or all) of the following :

  • Shopping – this includes delivering whilst respecting security distances. As far as possible, I will try and make it local to you. I am available in Eaux-Vives, for example.
  • Medicine – if people need medicine, we can either pick it up and deliver or I can arrange for your pharmacy to deliver to you.
  • Staying in touch – it would be great if we could ensure there is a telephone chain where we all get a certain number of people to call. If you have people you are close to, please let me know and I will allocate them to you. Calls don’t need to be long, just regular.

Please let us know if you need help with shopping or medicine. Please also let us know if you know of anyone who might need some help. And it is not just our elders and betters, we are all susceptible to having to isolate or being unwell.

Please also let us know if you, or anyone you know, would like to be included on the telephone chain. I think the more the merrier, so please let me know what the best number to contact you on is.

We will be sending emails every week, but please feel free to write to Michele in the office if you feel like a chat.

Please stay safe, let us know if you need us and we look forward to making sure we stay connected. 

With warm regards,
