Christ Church Patricroft
As the national lockdown continues we review our church opening policy regularly: our priority is for you to be able to worship in a Covid-secure manner. Christ Church, Patricroft remains open for public worship - our Sunday morning service starts at 9:30am.
We are also posting services on You Tube; please search for the Eccles Team Ministry.
Thank you to everyone in our community for helping us to make it through this difficult time; in the same way, we are here for you. We give thanks to God that we are being carried through this time of great uncertainty. People of faith are constantly aware of how much we need His love, His grace, His strength and power working through us especially on these toughest of days.
We look forward to welcoming you back safely to Christ Church, Patricroft. In line with government regulations, we ask you to wear a face covering and observe social distancing restrictions. Church will feel rather differently from pre-lockdown days but we are able to worship in limited numbers; every precaution is being taken so that we can worship together safely. Please check on the Calendar page for the dates and times of our services.
We can also arrange for the church to be opened for you for individual prayer at a mutually convenient time; please contact us using the "Get In Touch" page.
Keeping you safe: Should you need to enter the church building for any reason during this time it is mandatory that face coverings are worn by all ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus (COVID-19) and that they are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing.
Safeguarding is important to all Anglican Churches including here at Christ Church, Patricroft. We aim to create a safe environment where children and young people are nurtured and protected and where all people, especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and safety. The parish of Patricroft: Christ Church is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Manchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."
