Remembrance Day Service

Sunday 8th November 2020 10.15am

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Martham

Due to the pandemic, Remembrance Sunday is going to be somewhat different this year.  We need to ensure that different households and bubbles are appropriately distanced from one another.  Therefore, our capacity is more limited than normal, where we shall only have one household or bubble per pew, and that alternative pews will be unnavailable.  As we have often been full to capacity whilst using every pew, this year's Remembrance Day Service is going to need to be a ticketed event.

There will be one ticket per pew and our pews can seat up to 6 people.  Please submit a request for a ticket below, giving your name and contact details and the names of other people from your household or bubble that will join you in that pew.  The applicant needs to be an adult but you may include children on your ticket.  We need your contact details and names to enable a Track and Trace system to be in place.  We will only keep your details if you are successful in the ballot and then until 21 days after the service.

In order to be fair to the whole community, some of whom may have taken longer to have heard about the need for a ticket and need help in accessing the internet to apply for a ticket, we will be operating a ballot system rather than a first-come-first-served approach.  Applications for tickets will need to be made by 1st November 2020 and the ballot will take place on the 2nd November 2020.  Everyone who applies for a ticket will be informed whether they have been successful in obtaining a ticket.  Those who are successful will be sent a ticket via email (or in print for those without internet access) and entry to the service will only be permitted with a ticket and you will be given a 5 minute window to arrive in so that we avoid queues as much as possible.  Face masks will need to be worn whilst in the church.

We also hope to broadcast the service live through our channel on YouTube (link at the very bottom right of this page).  To be able to do this, we need to gain over 1000 subscribers.  Please subscribe to our YouTube channel (you don't need to watch any of the videos on there) so that we can serve our community by broadcasting this event.

More details about this will follow after the ballot.
