Greenbelt 2023

24th–27th August 2023

Tickets for Greenbelt 2023 are now on sale. For our 50th anniversary we’re trying something different, with three adult ticket prices. You choose the one you can afford.Greenbelt Festival 50th Anniversary 24th to 27th August 2023

Let’s face it. Times are tough. Festivals aren’t cheap— to make or to come to. That doesn’t mean we can’t still try to be creative, kind and radical though. That’s why we’re scrapping our usual, tiered ticket deadlines and replacing them with three simple price-points for adult tickets: Supported, Standard and Supporter. You’ll be able to spread the cost across the year, and of course there are Concession and Under-18 tickets too. And you’re completely free to decide which option best suits you.

Covid best practice

It is now appropriate that we follow the current Government guidelines in relation to attendance at services. There is no legal requirement for those testing positive for COVID 19 to self-isolate but it would be sensible that you do so. When attending a service there is no requirement to wear a face mask but many will still be more comfortable in doing so. Likewise, please respect the wishes of those who choose to sit at a distance from other members of the congregation. We are still advised that good hygiene practices should be followed— hand sanitiser will be available and we will continue to ventilate the Worship Area.

Tony Andrews, Church Council Secretary

September updates

The September prayer diary and the September edition of Sphere are now both available online.

Offerings

The church now has access to a card reader and this should be available most Sundays. There’s no need to scramble around the house looking for your offering, just bring a card and make a contactless donation for the amount of your choice. This is not available for those who are part of the envelope scheme.

Online services

A weekly Sunday Evening Service via Zoom will continue to take place as usual at 1900 on Sunday evenings unless there are any updates or changes. You will need to book onto the Zoom services: you only need to state your circuit and church if it is your first time of attending, otherwise, please just send an email to lancashiredistrictzoom@aol.com requesting the codes.

Please note the deadline for applying to join the weekly service is now 1300 on Fridays. This will greatly assist the Preston Ribble Circuit with administration.
