Church of England Diocese of Manchester Saint John the Baptist, Hey

Suspension Notice

14 Jan 2021, 5:30 p.m.

The vicar and the parochial church council of St John the Baptist, Hey, acting jointly, authorise dispensing with the reading of Morning and Evening Prayer, and the celebration of the Holy Communion as required by Canon B 14, on the following occasions: from Sunday 17<sup>th</sup> January up to Wednesday 17<sup>th</sup> February 2021. The reason for the dispensation is that in the light of the Government’s guidance on preventing the spread of Coronavirus, the church cannot be used safely for public worship on those occasions.

Before worship resumes, the Risk Assessment will be reviewed and the procedure for entry and exit will be strengthened to prevent the possibility of breaking the “no socialising” rule imposed by the government, the Church of England and the Diocese.
