Group Remembrance Service
We were delighted that despite the lockdown we obtained permission from the local council to hold a Remembrance Sunday Service at Essendon. We were not allowed to use the church building, or to gather in front of the war memorial, therefore the service, taken by Revd Iain Lane, was held in the churchyard where there was plenty of room to socially distance and we were blessed with warm dry weather.
For those not able to join us there was a well attended Zoom Remembrance Service held at the same time by Revd Theresa Musiwacho.
Easter Garden 2020
Some out of the box thinking this year has created the most splendid Easter Garden outside Essendon church. With restrictions on any movements outside the home and with social distancing observed at all times, the garden has been built by those on their permitted daily exercise walk. The cross has been made from the trunk of the Christmas Tree and all other materials, from those to hand.
Children around the village were invited to fill the jam jars as they passed by on their walks.
