Coronavirus guidance from the Church of England

We regret that whilst services have been resumed (see under Services and events) the church remains closed for individual prayer by members of the public at the present time, in line with Government advice.  However the Wardens of both churches are working strenuously to establish a pattern of worship that will hopefully suit all. Please read the article under News and Notices.   There are also many locally streamed services and events taking place and a range of national online church resources to engage with.

As the restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic are being slightly relaxed, the PCC have decided to revert to a regular pattern of services at Stoneleigh Church.

All services will be held at 11 am, and will take the form of a Holy Eucharist inside the church, except for the third Sunday of the month when the service will be held outside the church and will be a Celtic-style morning prayer. Seating is available but should the weather prove inclement we will move inside the church with the form of service remaining the same.

On the first Sunday of each month Eucharist will be celebrated as a United Service at either Ashow or Stoneleigh, with the one at Ashow starting at 10 am on Odd months, and the Stoneleigh service at 11 am on Even months.

Please note the following:

1. Social distancing has been relaxed for those who are happy with it. These people can occupy the pews on the North and Central Aisle.
People who wish to continue with social distancing should use the pews on the South aisle.

2. You are asked to continue wearing face masks (if you are able) until you are seated.

3. The congregation may now join in the singing of hymns, songs and responses where indicated in the Order of Service.

4. To avoid any risk of infection, hymn books, service books, and Pew Sheets will be handed out as you enter the church. Will you please leave the books in the pew after the service, but take your Pew Sheets home with you.

5. During Eucharist services the communal chalice will not be used by the congregation but the wine will be taken on their behalf by the Minister. Communion wafers will be distributed as normal and you are requested to use the one-way system to receive these.

6. For the time being, you are asked to continue to enter your name on the Track & Trace register. It is emphasised that these records are kept securely after each service under lock & key.

7. As soon as it can be arranged, it is the intention to serve refreshments after the service.

Should you have any queries about anything, please speak to one of the wardens.
