STOP PRESS! Latest restrictions don't further curtail services in church

10 Sep 2020, midnight

The government confirmed on Wednesday that the latest COVID restrictions announced 8th September mean services in church can continue under the present arrangements - with all the existing distancing and hygiene precautions.  The diligence of churches across the country in managing hygiene and social distancing has ensured no significant infection has resulted from the limited church gatherings currently permitted.  Our diligence will continue! Please don't feel offended about being asked to sanitise your hands, wear a mask, or sit only in the designated seats

The additional restrictions announced on 22nd September won't affect normal services, but will reduce further the numbers permitted at marriage services
