We will continue this weekly pattern for the time being. Churches will look different to before lockdown, with some areas cordoned off. These measures have been put in place to comply with Government and CofE guidelines, and to make our churches as safe as we can. There has been a rigorous risk assessment carried out for all of our Benefice Churches and other measures that are in place are as follows:

• 2 stewards will be on duty

• When entering the building you will be asked to sanitise your hands

• There will be specific areas for you to sit and pray

• Each church will be closed for 72 hours to minimise risk of the virus spreading

• Toilets will not be open

• One- way systems where possible and everyone required to maintain social distancing
