We are delighted to announce that both the Church of the Ascension, Telham and St Mary’s, Battle will be opening on Sunday for public worship from the 5th July 2020

The Dean and the Parochial Church Council have agreed to the risk assessments written up for both churches in accordance with guidelines from the Church of England, the Diocese of Chichester and the UK government.

Church of the Ascension, Telham:

Services from the Book of Common Prayer will be held at 10.00 am.

Maximum capacity for social distancing: 16 people

St Mary’s Battle:

A service of Holy Communion will be held at 9.30 am.

Maximum capacity: 46 people

Hand sanitiser will be provided on both sites and is mandatory to be used.

Holy Communion will be in one kind only - the congregation will receive the bread.

Please maintain social distancing at all times.

Due to the necessity for deep cleaning following the service, St Mary’s will not be open in the afternoon for private prayer.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back!
