Church buildings are able to be unlocked again. Here is what has been decided by All Saints Church, Siddington.
In line with guidance, Siddington Church is now open strictly for private prayer only, which we ask you to respect. Designated parts of the church are available for people to use, with other parts restricted. There may be the need to close the church at short notice, and we ask for your understanding in these difficult times.
There is a long list of precautions we need to take, and visitors will obviously need to take care in what they touch. There will be further updates on the app.
We will continue with our worship online, on both YouTube and Zoom, for the time being. We are expecting services in church to begin again in July, and are preparing for that. Please see 'Services and Events' for details that will be updated as guidance changes.
The Rural Daneside Churches Group is planning to have one service on the 4th Sunday of the month in Hulme Walfield Church, which will be strictly for those people who are shielding.
We are able to have funeral services in church again, but with strict guidelines on social distancing. This will be communicated to families and attendance will be by invitation only so that we know that we can have a safe number present. For safety, the church will be locked for 72 hours after the funeral.
Weddings and Baptisms
We are still unable to do either of these, but will let people know as soon as we can.
