In England, face coverings are currently required by law to be worn in shops, supermarkets, indoor transport hubs, indoor shopping centres, banks, building societies, post offices and on public transport. From 8 August, face coverings are also required by law to be worn in a greater number of public indoor settings including places of worship, museums, galleries, cinemas and public libraries.</span>

Please wear a face covering if you attend public worship or private prayer with us.

There will be some people in our congregations who are exempt from wearing face coverings and we wish to support you in this. It is also important that not wearing on is only for reasons expressed by the government. The list of exemptions which can be found here - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own
