We will follow government and Church of England guidance to provide a safe environment in Church.

Social distancing will be in operation and hand sanitiser will be provided on arrival. We will operate a one-way entry / exit system.

Face coverings are now mandatory.

We will play music, though will not be singing.

There will unfortunately be no refreshments after church.

In the unlikely event that there are too many people to ensure safe social distancing, we may, very reluctantly, have to ask people not to enter the church building on this occasion.
