August 2020

Throughout August we will hold a service in every church on Sundays but this will not follow the normal pattern in each church, we thought that it was important to keep momentum going once we have restarted worship.

During August we will review this and then plan accordingly for September – I will also be taking two weeks holiday in mid-September.

I realise that not everyone will be ready to public worship dependent upon their particular circumstances and the risks that you and your families face.

We have carried out risk assessments and following the government, Church of England and Diocesan guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in places of worship.  We have to record contact details for everyone who attends any of our services in order to comply with the track and trace requirements.  Will keep these details for the required 21 days and hand them over if required to the authorities conducting the track and trace we will not use them for any other purpose in line with the GDPR regulations.

Those who attend worship should note:

Do not come to church if you are feeling unwell or have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms in the past seven days
You are welcome to wear a face covering but it is not compulsory. They are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from COVID-19 and they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.  I will wear a face covering for those parts of the service when I am close to others.
Take responsibility for your own safety and that of your household and other people by maintaining social distancing and observing all hygiene measures
Ensure children are supervised at all times
Understand that you may not be able to sit in your preferred place, or close to friends who do not live in your household or who are not part of your ‘Bubble group’.

Thank you for your understanding
as we slowly return to public worship.

Baptisms during Covid restrictions in the3churches of Croston, Bretherton & Mawdesley w Bispham

As the foundation of Christian life, baptism is a time of joy and celebration for all involved and whilst it may be some time before this celebration can be enjoyed as before.
We have not conducted any Baptisms in our three churches since the first lockdown came into force in March 2020, but now the government is easing the restrictions we will begin to take bookings for baptisms once again.
As the overwhelming majority of our Baptisms occur outside normal Parish Worship we will follow the government guidance for weddings which are similar in their nature as gatherings of family and friends come together to celebrate a significant life event.
The Government restrictions change with the different steps out of lockdown and are summarised as follows:
Step 2: 15 people attending, from the 12th April
Step 3: 30 people attending, estimated for 17th May at the earliest
Step 4: no limit on people attending, estimated for 21st June at the earliest
I must stress that these are indicative dates and are dependent on confirmation from government at each stage.
The limits do not include those classed “workers”, such as the Priest or others assisting on behalf of the church.
We will be following the government and Church of England guidance to ensure that conduct all our services in as safe a manner as possible, these are also subject to change as the government restrictions change.
You will appreciate that there will be a large number of baptism requests coming to us so dates will need to negotiated due to the number of requests we are likely to receive and the availability of clergy to conduct the baptisms.
If you would like to book a date can you please email the Rector with the following details so that we can begin to plan a schedule and agree dates with you.
Baptisms usually take place at 12:30 pm although they can also take place within a regular Sunday Holy Communion service if preferred.

Please contact Reverend Michael if you would like to arrange a Baptisms.
