Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey


Amazing news!  The Covid vaccine is now being offered to all those aged 23 and above.  This is well above the target of July and will, hopefully, mean that all over 18s will have been offered their first vaccine before the start of July!  We are extremely grateful for the efforts of the teams of volunteers around the country to reach this target – thank you!

It was lovely to welcome so many people in church last Sunday.  Some we haven’t seen in person for a while – it was a pleasure to greet you, face to face.  We look forward to when we can not only see you and share worship in church, but when we can sing praises and enjoy coffee afterwards!  We are slowly getting there; I think patience is a virtue we have all learnt since March 2020.  Sarah
