St John the Baptist, Layer de la Haye, will be open for individual private prayer from Sunday 21 June,  Sundays and Wednesdays only, between 10:00am and 4:00pm. This allows us to balance the greatest amount of access with the least amount of cleaning (there being about 72 hours between sessions, which substantially limits the risk of transmission of the virus from surfaces). These arrangement will be reviewed after a month or beforehand if there is a significant change in government guidance or if any difficulties arise with them.

If you are visiting the church, please observe the government’s social distancing guidelines and use the hand sanitiser provided. To keep others safe, please do not enter if you have COVID-19 symptoms. Those who are shielding or self-isolating also should not visit.

Our services and other activities continue online.
