Public Worship At S Lawrence Little Stanmore & Covid-19 aka Coronavirus
All Public Worship is offered in this Parish in accordance with the Church of England's National Guidelines
Places of Worship are not counted as ‘social gatherings’ – services are as ‘normal’.
Please stay vigilant as the local case numbers fluctuate.
We should come to church with no more than 6 people and not socialise outside that group in or outside the building.
Washing of hands via the use of the hand sanitiser provided is required on entry and exit.
Social distancing of 2m is to be maintained where possible and 1m+ where not.
Please sit as directed by the stewards
Face coverings are required, by law, to be worn for all public acts of worship.
The Priest will wear a mask when in close proximity to you but is not required to wear one when leading the service.
All worshippers will be asked to have their temperature taken (non-invasively) and have their contact details recorded on arrival for NHS “Test and Trace”, should this be necessary. If you have a smartphone, there is a poster with a scannable QR code on, as we are supporting the NHS “Test and Trace” App.
Congregational Singing is still prohibited in all churches.
Holy Communion is administered in one kind only (the sharing of the Common Cup still suspended). Please follow the directions of the Sidespeople.
Financial offerings will be via the Plate stationed at the back of church, not passed between each other. People are encouraged to give contactlessly via a Standing Order account details on request.
