Looking forward to welcoming you back to worship.
As we begin the journey there are some changes to the conduct of the service:
Please use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the church. Do not loiter in the church after the service, but socialise outside at appropriate distance
Gaps in the hassocks on the pews are to assist with maintaining 2m distance, which remains the ideal. Obviously couples are at liberty to move hassocks so as to sit together.
Orders of service are for single use. Please take them away with you.
Donations online are to be encouraged rather than cash in the plate. Please visit our website for guidance. The plate will be available for those unable to access other means of donating.
Communion will be in one kind only. The chalice will not be shared.
We are discouraged from projecting our voices. The words ‘The Body of Christ’ will not be spoken individually as each communicant receives.
Communion will be received in a socially distanced queue. At the invitation, please come forward maintaining the distance and keeping to the right hand side.. When you have received, please continue to the left and back to your place. The entrance to the chancel is 1m wide so please avoid passing those returning simultaneously.

A strange day today, seing people on their doorsteps remembering those that gave their lives for a better life for us today. Although not from Rusper, I found the film both poignant and moving; a beautiful tribute . Thank you
This is wonderful. Well done Rowland and team. I always remember reading 'The Men Who Marched Away' when visiting my grandparents in Rusper as a child and going to the war memorial to see their names. It was a little book my nan kept that was produced by Avery's press.
A beautiful film - very moving xx
On this Remembrance Sunday a Requiem Eucharist will be offered on behalf of the parish for our war dead. This will not be a public service. There will be a 5-10 minute Act of Remembrance at the memorial at 11am. Due to the current lockdown restrictions a formal gathering is not taking place, but of course if anyone is in the High Street at that time we trust they would take time to respectfully pause and observe the silence.
In place of a Remembrance service we have made this film to mark our village tribute in which residents of today evoke our longing for peace and the sacrifice of our community in times of war. I commend this very moving tribute to you.

Our beautiful country church is the perfect setting for a wedding and of course, when we think of weddings, we think of flowers. Flowers are usually an integral part of any bride’s wedding plans and this is where we can be of assistance.
