A very warn welcome to you wherever you are from the family of St George's and St Thomas' in Hyde. We would love to welcome you in person at either of our church buildings, and we pride ourselves in being an inclusive and welcoming churches. However at the moment the restrictions that are in place to help protect our communities and families during the Coronavirus pandemic currently mean that our buildings are currently closed to the public. We did successfully open with no reported cases prior to the second lockdown, and as soon as we are given permission to re-open we will look to do this as soon as possible. Should we re-open, we will continue to be limited to 30 people in the congregation. We will continue to broadcast our services on both Zoom and our Facebook page, and encourage you to join our online community each Sunday. If you would like the Zoom meeting reference, please contact our churchwarden, and we can add you to our email list.
