Covid precautions - what to expect at our services

What to expect when attending a service in Church

The Government has lifted all Covid restrictions.  Although local infection rates are still quite high, we are no longer asking for masks to be worn inside the church.  We do still encourage people to manage their own precautions sensibly, and respect the safety of others.

We will allow people to choose where to sit but encourage people to give each other space and be aware of those who may not be comfortable sitting too close together.

We will invite you to come forward to the altar rails to receive communion (still in one kind) and further direction will be given at each communion service.

Case numbers are still quite high in our area and these measures will continue to be reviewed every few weeks. Thank you for your understanding.
