Church of England Diocese of Leeds Ravensthorpe and Thornhill Lees with Savile Town

Open at Last!

16 Jul 2020, 10 a.m.

The eucharist is celebrated on Sundays and Wednesdays. To comply with safety guidelines, social distancing of 2 metres is required throughout the Church, and there is a one-way system. The maximum number of individuals or household'bubbles' we can accommodate safely is 21. 

Holy Communion will be offered in one kind (the bread) only; the Church has always held that Our Lord is fully present in either kind. It will be necessary to sanitise hands before receiving and communion will be given into the hand. To minimise risks further, the altar rails will not be used and people will receive standing. 

Unfortunately we are not permitted to sing and exchange the Sign of Peace physically with physical touch, not socialise after the service. 

But it is great to be back in Church!
