After consideration the PCC has approved the plan for the main church building to reopen. The opening is currently for private prayer only. 

The opening will be on Sundays, 9:30-11:30 as a drop in, for the time being. There will be no toilets open. 

Able bodied visitors please use the Brinckman Street entrance, enter through the central door, exit through the usual entrance/exit. Disabled access maintained as a joint entrance/exit at the side. As a result of this being a 2 way path please reserve this entrance for disabled visitors. Use the Doncaster Road entrance to reach the side door, but please be aware that people may be coming down the path in the opposite direction. If this is the case give way and appropriate social distance. 

There will be hand sanitiser available at entrances and exits. Please use this. Please observe the clearly marked one way system. There will be chairs allocated at appropriate social distance. At this time the side chapels and devotional candles are out of use. 

Please do not enter the building if you have symptoms of covid-19 including loss or change of sense of taste or smell, temperature, new continuous cough. 

We are continuing to evaluate if we can open for services, and will consider the appropriate risk assessment, and priest availability. If there are any updates we will post them here.
