We are opening the doors

to worship together

at St John’s, Ryde

on Sundays at 10am. for a Service of Holy Communion.

Based on government guidelines, we have put the following in place so that we can all stay safe:

• single use orders of service

• no singing of hymns - but there will be music.

• no sharing of communion wine – but we will share the bread.

• socially distanced seating arrangements

• a ‘one way system’ for moving around the church

• entry via the South door (car park) exit via the North door

• the children’s areas will not be in use.

• Sorry! - no coffee after the service

Please help us to keep everyone safe by taking care to keep your distance as you move around. You are encouraged to wear a mask.

Sadly we have to ask you to stay away for now if you are ‘extremely clinically vulnerable’, have any Covid 19 symptoms (high temperature, new persistent cough, a loss or change in your normal sense of taste or smell), or have been in contact with anyone who has Covid 19 symptoms in the last 14 days.
