Covid-19 changes

24 Jul 2021, 9 a.m.

At St John's we have taken the decision to ease some of the covid-19 restrictions which have been in place for the past year.

We are grateful that we are a small community and can safely do the following, while maintaining sensible distancing and respecting the feelings of visitors to our church.

1. Face coverings are now optional for our normal Sunday worship; however we will continue to require face coverings for services with large numbers of attendees; please bring a face covering and wear it if requested to do so.

2. From Sunday 25th August we will introduce congregational singing where the number of people in church is 20 or fewer.

3. We will serve tea and coffee after our Sunday service, but will continue to sit in groups of no more than 6
