Church of England Diocese of Leeds Hampsthwaite and Killinghall

Our Covid 19 arrangements

6 Jan 2021, 11 a.m.

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.
