There will be the BCP at 9.15 and Common Worship at 10.30am. We will still need to maintain social distancing, sanitise hands, follow the one way system, sign in on the app or paper sheet etc, all of the measures we had in place previously. Singing is sadly still not allowed at present. The attached letter from the Local Health Authority outlines some of their concerns. It states:</div><div>

</div></div><div><div>'Additional care and attention needs to be given to ensure people do not socialise or meet and greet before or after prayers. We have had reports that whilst standards are maintained inside places of worship, the situation outside is of concern. Please urge your worshippers to respect the rules before and after services.'</div><div>

</div></div><div><div>Please can I ask that you arrive no sooner than 5-10 minutes before worship unless you are acting as sidesperson etc and respect the requests of the health authority.</div><div>

</div></div><div><div>Church will continue to remain open from approx 9-5 for private worship on Thursdays and Sundays. We will also continue to upload the services to You Tube and share via Twitter and Face Book for those of you who wish to continue worshipping at home for now.</div></div></div></div></div></div></div>
