Church of England Diocese of Leeds Saint Giles, Pontefract

Moving Forward Together

29 Aug 2021, 8 a.m.

Please note:

We advise that those able to wear masks continue to wear them for services, including singing, and when moving around church.

Masks are not required for groups who meet together, nor when seated in the café.

Hand sanitizer stations will continue to be available and their use encouraged.

Doors will continue to be left open to improve ventilation.

If you would like seat space left between you and the next person, please take a card from reception to place on the seat beside you.

The gaps between rows will be reduced. Strict socially distanced seating will be retained in the balcony.

We will not, at this point, be making any changes to how we currently share the peace.

The priest will continue to hand sanitise and wear a face covering when distributing communion.

We will continue following a one-way system for communion and moving around church.

We will retain only taking communion in one kind until we can return to the common cup safely.

The collection will remain as a basket placed near the north door.

As yet we are not able to return to serving refreshments after Sunday services, though we will resume Wednesday and Saturday refreshments in the café from 1st September.

Though not now mandatory, we will continue to provide additional cleaning of the church during this period.
