While Easter Sunday is always special, this year was all the more so for the 25 people who gathered in St Modan’s Church on the 4th April. This was the first service of public worship held in the parish since we went into the first lockdown period in March 2020.
As we required to be socially distanced with 2m spacing between individuals from different households, the numbers attending were limited and people were asked to “book” a seat in advance. The building was well ventilated and the external doors stayed open during the service.
The service which was led by Mrs Aileen Binner included elements from the YouTube service, and while singing is currently not allowed, we were able to hum along to the hymns if we so desired.
With all its restrictions it was good to be back together.
