If you would like to receive email updates from St Nicholas' Church, Bradfield, please message this page, or email [email protected]
Videos of thoughts and prayers each week are on YouTube "Bradfield Church Videos".
Sunday worship each week at 10.30am, following strict hygiene, distancing, and maximum attendance regulations.
Baptisms, weddings, and funerals may take place.
We pray for the health and peace of the world, the health and peace of our nation, health and peace in our homes, health and peace in our hearts.
God bless you and God bless us all at this time.
Attending Sunday worship:
Please dress warmly!
You may have to queue outside church, as we can only admit one household at a time. Please keep at least 2 metres distance from others when outside the church, and please help to make sure the porch door does not get blocked.
Church doors will be open to maximise ventilation, so inside the church building may not be as warm as usual.
We are not to “mingle” in the church building. Please go straight to an allocated seat on entry. We are strictly following the guidance on social distancing: please remain in your allocated seat when you are in church.
Except for children under 11, facemasks must be worn.
We request that you use hand sanitiser on entry and exit from the building.
There is to be no singing, but there will be music. Roy will play the hymn tunes for us, and we can follow the words in the books.
No refreshments will be served after the service - please bring with you drinking water (and a snack?) if you think you will need it.
The Tower Room should not be used, because of the confined space, and we cannot provide toys for children. (Children should remain with their parents at all times - bring your own toys if you wish to!).
At the service of Holy Communion, when it comes to receiving communion, we ask you to remain seated. If you normally receive communion, Alan will come to you and offer you a wafer, so that you may receive communion “in one kind” (i.e. wafer only, no wine). Alternatively, he will offer to say a prayer of blessing for you. You should remove your face covering to receive communion, then put it back on again.
The Jane Street toilet will be locked, but the key will be available. It will have been cleaned before the service, but hygiene and cleaning materials will be available, and for your own sake and for the sake of others, we ask that you use the anti-viral wipes provided to wipe down any surfaces you touch.
We will keep a record of who attends church, and their contact details, for 21 days for NHS test and trace purposes.
Please do not come to church if you feel unwell, particularly if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.
These measures are, of course, to protect you, and to protect us all.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
