Church of England Diocese of Rochester St. Andrew, Bromley

St Andrew's is open and welcomes you for Private Prayer from Thursday 18th June.

16 Jun 2020, 3:45 a.m.

Friends, it is with great pleasure I can announce that we shall be opening our doors for Private prayer from Thursday 18th June 2020. Between 10am and noon each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday you will be welcome to use the building for private prayer. There will be no public worship at this present time. We shall only have seating available on the left-hand side of the church as you come in. We ask that you obey all social distancing rules and we will provide hand sanitiser by the door and we request you use this as you come in and as you leave.

There will be no toilet facilities available at this time. There will be candles to light near the front of the church, but we cannot provide matches or lighters under current circumstances so please bring your own and take them away with you. We will also have single paper pages available for you to record names of loved ones you may have lost during these past months. These names, and dates if you wish to put them, will be recorded in church and placed on the altar in loving memory. Please could we ask you to bring a pen with you to write any names down and take it away with you. Thank you. We are very sorry for your loss and pray God will be with you in your grief.

We cannot offer any books, Bibles, service sheets etc for the present time. We would ask you would not touch things around the church as extensive cleaning will need to be done as people come and go. We will need to ask you for a name and phone number for Government track and trace purposes.

Thank you for your cooperation as this allows us to open and welcome you into our church building. 

We have missed you and welcome you back to pray as you feel is appropriate.
