Parish of Upton cum Chalvey
Update 24 July 2021
As you will be aware, the Prime Minister set back the lifting of restrictions in a recent announcement. You will also be aware that covid 19 continues to be a concern in Slough.
In this light, and following consultation with the district wardens, we are putting back the date of our return to three services in the parish. We are now aiming to return 15 August 2021
As one warden put it “a cautious approach is justified though undesirable.”
This means that we will continue to worship in St Mary’s at 10am on a Sunday. The three weekday masses presently offered will continue as at present, though there will be no re-introduction of further services.
Please spread this news as much as you can.
Fr Alistair & Church Wardens
Until 14 August 2021
Sundays: Mass at St Mary’s, 10am
Tuesdays: Mass at St Mary’s, 10am
Wednesdays: Mass at St Peter’s 9.30am
Thursdays: Mass at St Laurence’s, 10am
Broadband is working in St Mary’s, see link below to view with Zoom
Although we take every precaution in our worship to prevent the spread of covid-19 the fundamental responsibility is that of everybody present, in particular in maintaining social distancing at all times, and in covering your face. And do not attend if you have any symptoms which may be covid, or if you have been in contact with any person so diagnosed.
Our shutdown was caused by people not observing these simple precautions; please do not be the cause of another shutdown.
Rotas for sidespeople will be produced: if you are a sidesperson at any church, please volunteer to Derek White-Taylor at St Mary’s.
We are also re-introducing some altar serving with a selected and specially trained cadre of servers.
We will also be seeking to produce a readers’ and intercessors’ rota under the management of Revd Linda.
Again, please do not wait to be asked.
History of St Mary’s Church
The building stating today was designed by John Oldrid Scott; building started in 1874, and was completed in 1913 with the addition of the tower and spire.
The church houses some unique stained glass. The completely abstract west window – one of the first of its kind – was created by Alfred Wolmark in 1915.
