Plympton St Maurice Church

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update July 2021

On Sundays there is a Eucharist at St Mary’s church at 9.30 am and at St Maurice church at 11.00 am.

On Wednesdays there is a Said Eucharist at St Maurice church at 10.00 am

Private prayer is held at St Mary’s on Wednesdays between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm, and at St Maurice on Saturdays between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon.

In response to the Government’s decision to move to step 4 of the Roadmap out of Lockdown from 19th July, the following has been agreed in our churches.

You must not attend church if you have any Covid-related symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace

The option to check in for NHS Test & Trace will continue to be made available either with the stewards or using the NHS Covid app  

Hand sanitiser should be used on entering and leaving church, and before receiving Communion.

The wearing of face coverings is no longer compulsory, however we strongly encourage you to continue to wear a mask, for the consideration of everyone within the church. At the very least, we would ask that you always wear your mask when moving around the church, when coming forward for Communion and whilst singing.

Singing by the congregation is now allowed but we would request that you wear a mask when doing so.

Although social distancing is no longer compulsory, please think of others when seating yourself and check that anyone sitting in the same pew is comfortable with the distance between you. Both churches are operating at a lower maximum capacity than usual, and alternate pews remain closed.

Communion will continue to be administered in one kind only i.e. just the bread

Please pray for the leaders of our Team Ministry as they continue to seek to implement the latest advice from the Government and the National Church.”
