The Half Marathon arranged for this coming Sunday is scheduled to pass St George’s at a critical time when choir and parishioners would be arriving and later leaving the 9.30am Eucharist or arriving for the 11.00am Choral Eucharist.
The Half Marathon organisers have advised that there will be no access to the churchyard from 9.20am and no entrance or exit before 11.00am.
The Rector has therefore agreed to the following service changes this coming Sunday:
9.30am Eucharist – cancelled
11.00am Choral Eucharist – delayed until 11.30am
5.00pm Choral Evensong – as usual at 5.00pm
The race organisers advise that access to the church can be granted via Victoria Street/May Street only.
We regret the necessity to alter service times but will continue to follow up this issue with the relevant race organisers.
We hope the Half Marathon traffic arrangements will be minimal when you travel but do allow some extra time.
