CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION - August 2020
Pandemic lockdown restrictions have recently been eased and our churches can now open for public worship. These services will be different from those we are used to as we have to ensure that our buildings are Covid-19 Secure and do our best to protect those who come inside.

Initially, 4 of our churches will be opening for either Holy Communion or Morning Prayer on Sunday mornings - there will be Evening Prayer held at another of our churches on Thursday afternoons.
Adhering to Government Guidance, strict social distancing measures will be in place, which mean that every person or household group must be 2 metres from the next person or household group.
Following risk assessments carried out in all our churches there will be restrictions on numbers attending. Hand sanitisers and one-way systems will be in place to ensure that all movements into and out of churches and during worship are safe.
We will not be allowed to sing during services and any responses must be given quietly.
Liturgy will be on disposable sheets which can be taken home or disposed of after the service.
There will not be any refreshments after the services.
Please note that those who are clinically vulnerable/shielding, or who have symptoms of a continuous cough or a high temperature or loss of or change to sense of smell or taste, should not attend church.
A welcomer will greet people coming into church and help you to comply with these guidelines.
