Come & Join us on Zoom as we offer a virtual Clypp (hug) our Church ask for God’s blessing on our communities and share pancakes!
Clipping the church is an ancient custom that is traditionally held in England on Easter Monday or Shrove Tuesday. The word “clypping” is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and is derived from the word “clyppan”, meaning “embrace” or “clasp”. Clipping the church involves the congregation holding hands in a ring around the church. Once the circle is completed onlookers will often cheer and sometimes hymns are sung. Following the ceremony a sermon is delivered in the church and there are refreshments. Christians adopted this tradition to show their love for their church and the surrounding people.
This year we are having a Zoom Clypping and Pancakes service! Please do join us with pancakes ready and if you can a Lemon (all will be explained on the night)! As we can’t hug the Church this year we have included a Clypping Blessing Card so you can go to your Doorsteps and then come back to the Zoom!Clypping-2021-Card
