Due to the marked increase in the transmission of the new variant of Covid and the pressure in which the NHS is currently under, the PCCs of Hampsthwaite & Killinghall and Birstwith have taken the difficult decision to once again close our churches for public worship and will revert to holding a Zoom service at 1100 hrs each Sunday. The Zoom joining instructions can be found on each of the churches' websites.
St Thomas a Becket, Hampsthwaite will open each Sunday from 1400 - 1500 hrs for Private Prayer or outside of that day and time on request - phone 01423 771935 or 01423 770504.
Once our church is open again:
St Thomas a Becket, Hampsthwaite has made every effort to follow Covid-19 guidelines as follows:
Face covering to be worn on entry
One-way entry and exit
Hand sanitising station on entry and in each pew
2-metre seating distance for the congregation
Test and trace data recording
One-way system when receiving Holy Communion in one kind
We believe that all necessary precautions are in place and trust that you will feel safe to join us in worship.
