Important information about Worship in St Stephen's and the Astley, Tyldesley, Mosley Common Team churches.

You are warmly invited to join us for worship.

Worship on a weekly basis at St Stephen's and the other two churches in the Team has resumed. Across the Team churches there will be a Eucharist, a Service of the Word and a Café Church service available each week and all services start at 10am.

Post Lockdown information:

-whilst it is no longer mandatory to wear face masks in church you are encouraged to continue wearing one if attending worship in any of our churches, particularly if you still feel vulnerable

- where practicable we will set aside an area for those who wish to continue being socially distanced from other members of the congregation: please alert a member of the 'meet and greet' team as you enter church if you need assistance with this

- use of the Common Cup during communion has not resumed yet but remains under review

The above measures are consistent with the Church of England guidance issued and we will continue to review it. Please help us continue to keep you and us safe.

Yours in Christ
