Arrangements for St.Andrew’s Boxford during the Covid-19 Pandemic

In line with other religious organisations, St.Andrew’s church has been closed. However, we are not without services. These are being streamed online daily – Morning Prayer and Compline in the evening and Sunday services by Revd John Toogood. All this and more can be found on the East Downland website – please follow the link in the side bar.

On Sunday 5th July the first service in the East Downlands Benefice was a Holy Communion service held at St.Andrew’s, Boxford. Boxford St.Andrew’s will be hosting 3 Holy Communion services in September – 6th, 13th and 27th all at 11am. We shall be observing strict Covid-19 guidelines. The church will remain open for private prayer afterwards until 4pm

We hope everyone is keeping well and we look forward to seeing you again in St.Andrew’s Church. In the meanwhile if you need assistance, please contact the Rector: edownlandrector@gmail.com

Boxford Public Access Defibrillator

Boxford’s new defibrillator is now functioning in the church porch at St.Andrew’s. In the event of an emergency, the 999 operator will advise the location and code to access the defibrillator. Thirty two people have signed up for Resuscitation Training which will take place at the Village Hall on September 12th and 19th. More money for the defibrillator, installation, maintenance and first aid training has been received and the total now stands at £2845! Well done Boxford!
