Church of England Diocese of Chester Saint Catherine Birtles

St. Catherine's Church will re-open for Services on Sunday 5th July

28 Jun 2020, 10:45 a.m.

On Sunday 5th July the Family Service will be at 11.15am.  Contrary to previously published information there will not be a service at 8am  This service time of 11.15am only will continue for the next few weeks and the services will be said.

Social distancing notices will remind worshippers to keep 2 metres apart. Holy Communion will be in one kind only (the host) and must be received standing at the altar rail. This is so that the rail is not touched by successive people.  You will be asked to stand at the altar rail 2 metres apart, or if this is not possible, at least 1 metre apart, and to ensure the same social distancing before and after receiving the sacrament, and at all other times whilst in church.

Some areas may be out of use to reduce the area of the church that will need to be cleaned after the service. You will be asked to take your order of service away with you to avoid multiple handling. Sanitiser will be available for hand washing.

If you intend to be at the 11.15am service at St.Catherine’s Church on 5th July please telephone Chance Wilson on 0771 363 0820 or Michael Norbury on 01625 583788 to let them know, so that we have an idea of the number of worshippers to plan for.

Please bring your own refreshments for after the Service.
