|COVID-19 UPDATE 15 June 2020: Whilst we are unable to use our church buildings for public worship, services continue on-line and by telephone, on Sunday mornings at 10.00 a.m. and on Tuesday evenings at 6.30 p.m. Please see our church web-sites for details, or call the Rector on 01886 880438 for this and all other inquiries.
The Parish Churches at Cradley and at Mathon are again open for private prayer, with particular restrictions in place to comply with safety requirements. The churches will be cleaned each evening after closing. For this reason, opening times may be more restricted than they were before. Please read the guidelines available in each place.
Due to the vulnerability of its location, Storridge Church has not customarily been left open outside of service times. We hope to be able to open all our churches for both public and private prayer before very long, and be able to resume the wide variety of concerts, talks and other events to which we've become accustomed. Up-dates will be posted on our church notice boards and the three church web-sites www.cradleychurch.org.uk, www.mathonchurch.org.uk, www.storridgechurch.org.uk

| ||BT OpenReach have completed installation of Fibre To The Cabinet (and existing wire to your home) broadband services for the RIDGEWAY CROSS exchange (01886 88xxxx). Check with your ISP to see if you have the best connection for you.
BroadbandUK provide a speed checker.
You can also check the speed of your connection using the BT Wholesale Broadband Performance Test.
I no longer recommend PlusNet as an internet service provider.

This group of local volunteers was created to support those in need of help during the coronavirus pandemic.
As the situation improves, the rules about are changing frequently and there are also hints that the Government will soon be relaxing the Shielding Rules.
WE ARE STILL HERE, PLEASE STILL USE US.
There will be some people who will be happier shielding for some time yet, whatever the Government advises.
There will be people self-isolating because they have Covid-19 symptoms or are contacts of Covid-19 cases.
There will be people in quarantine after travel.
There will be some people who are not in the extremely clinically vulnerable groups but who still feel vulnerable and want to reduce their risk.
For all these people, the fantastic volunteers are still happy to help you. We never ask why you need our services. Please use us to protect yourselves, your family and our community.
The two shops in the parish are both happy and willing to prepare deliveries if these are phoned though to them. Volunteers then deliver the provisions.
Cradley Butchery and Stores: 01886 880221
Crumpton Hill Farm Shop: 01886 880802
Please try to order weekly and bear in mind that stocks may be limited. Orders should be paid for over the phone, not via the volunteers.
Deliveries are usually made in the early evening, with full social distancing measures. Deliveries may no longer be made every day if demand falls.
Prolonged self-isolation will be difficult for all of us and anyone feeling in need of a friendly chat and support should phone the number below and a team of volunteers will be delighted make regular telephone contact with you and support you.
