St James Church - new arrangements as we move to step 4 of the Covid-19 roadmap

19 Jul 2021, 9 a.m.

Whilst we are pleased that the Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, your PCC have decided that we wish people to continue to wear face masks or visors when in the church, and social distancing in the pews will remain for the time being. Hand sanitisers continue to be available. The track & trace QR code will still be displayed on the notice board and, as recommended, we will continue maintaining a logbook of those attending services. For those taking Holy Communion, we now have the option of being able to take the bread & wine, but to ensure ongoing safety of our congregation, we have decided to continue taking the bread only, with only the officiating priest taking the wine. The good news is that, from Sunday, we are permitted to sing hymns again! The recommendation is to sing quietly, behind your masks or visors.
