St.Mary's Re-opens for Public Worship

3 Jul 2020, 7:15 a.m.

Following advice from the Government and the Church of England, St.Mary's is re-opening for public worship from this Sunday 5th July for its 8 a.m. Holy Communion service. From Wednesday 22 July, its 10 a.m. midweek communion services will recommence. Services will continue on Sundays on Zoom at 10 am. Arrangements for the communion services will be reviewed by mid-August, and a decision taken then about re-opening the main Sunday service.

Due to the need for 2 metres social distancing, numbers will be limited to 15 people per service on a first come, first served basis. So come early if you want to be guaranteed a seat! You will expected to sanitise your hands on entering the building. Face masks are not required but may be worn if desired. Communion will only be available in one kind (bread or wafers) at present and singing will not be taking place. Please do not come to church if you have symptoms of Covid 19. Those who are shielding are advised not to attend until 1 August when shielding will end.

Funerals, weddings and baptisms can now also take place. Please visit our 'life events' page on our website for further details.

I look forward to welcoming you (back) to St.Mary's
