Church of England Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham Gringley on the Hill

St Peter & St Paul's Church, Gringley

SERVICES RE-STARTED

Across the Oswaldbeck Benefice, churches are taking the relaxation of Coronavirus restrictions very seriously. Wearing a face covering is still recommended, along with use of hand sanitiser, and the NHS Test & Trace QR code (or completing the register of attendance). All the seating has been opened, but people attending church are advised to sit where they can maintain distance between themselves and anyone not in their 'bubble'. Holy Communion is delivered in one kind only and singing may be limited. This will be updated shortly.

See the post elsewhere giving details of services, when and where. The church is now open for private worship daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm. If you're going into the church, everyone is urged to be cautious. In addition to the above, please remember that if wishing to light a votive candle in memory of a loved one, bring your own lighter or matches.

Go to the Facebook page for All Saints' Parish Church in Misterton for the latest updates and links to online services.
