*IMPORTANT UPDATES *. 27th January 2022
From today is it no longer mandatory to wear masks in church. However, due to the size of St Peter's and with the difficulty in circulating air we are requesting that you continue to wear a mask when you come into the building and continue to make use of the hand sanitising stations. The Covid infection rate is still very high and as a responsible and caring church we are committed to keeping those who attend services as safe as possible. Thank you for your help and for all the support St Peter's has received over the course of all the Covid changes we have had to implement.

BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS AND FUNERALS
Due to the size of our building and the challenges with ventilation, in our responsibilities for keeping those attending church safe, until further notice we find it necessary to restrict numbers for these services to 50 adults. Children under 12 will not be counted in this number.
