Church Lane,

It’s good to be able to worship together once again, even if it’s not quite in the manner we would choose. To help keep one another safe would you please take a moment to read the notices below before the service begins.
You will have washed your hands in sanitiser as you came into church, can I remind you to do the same as you leave.
If you need to use the toilet during the service there will be a hand sanitiser for your use at the door by the stone font.
Please make sure you remain seated during the service on a pew which is marked clearly for your use and which will keep you at a safe distance from your neighbour.
Once the service is finished could you make sure that you leave church keeping your distance from those around you.
If you haven’t already given your name and telephone number to the person at the door as you entered church please do so before you leave.
Remember, though we can’t get too close to each other for the time being, God has been close to us during this difficult time and he is with us as we gather for worship this morning!
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
