Your safety our main concern

From 19 July the restrictions imposed to keep us safe have been relaxed. It is now the responsibility of our Incumbent, Revd Rebecca Harris and the Parochial Church Council to decide how to move forward. 

After careful consideration and following an update of our risk assessment, All Saints' Church will continue to ask its members to wear facemasks (unless they previously had an exemption) and to continue social distancing. This is due to the increasing rates of Covid-19 and to protect our congregation who although mostly double vaccinated continue to be in the category of being more vulnerable.  We will also be asking you to sanitise your hands on entry and throughout the service as required.

The NHS Test and Trace QR code is available or we will take a note of your attendance in case there is a need to contact you if one of the congregation attending develops Covid-19 after one of our services. 

We have agreed to maintain communion in one kind only i.e. bread only and only the celebrant will take the chalice (wine). 

We are going to re-introduce congregational singing at our services but ask that we do this with masks. 

This position will be reviewed regularly to take into account the changing situation. 

Our continued concern is the wellbeing of all our members in whatever role they play. We thank you for your support in these measures.
