Following the Covid-19 pandemic

Services look, sound and feel different!

  • Please remember to respect and observe social distancing when entering and leaving church.
  • You should wear a face covering whilst in church unless you are exempt from doing so for medical reasons.
  • You will be asked to apply hand sanitiser on entry and as you are leaving.
  • You will be invited to fill in your details on a form to help with Track and Trace (if necessary). These details will be kept securely for 21 days and then destroyed unless they are requested by Track and Trace.
  • Some pews will be roped off to ensure at least 1.8 metres distance between each person, household or “bubble” group.
  • Please only sit in a pew which has a notice indicating it is available for use. When you leave, please turn the notice over so that the pew may be cleaned before it is used again.
  • Cushions have been removed from pews to facilitate cleaning – you may like to bring your own cushion!
  • We may use sign language to communicate in some parts of the service, such as at the sharing of Peace.
  • Service sheets will be placed on pews for you to use and take away with you.
  • Holy Communion will be given out as bread only.
  • The choir are allowed to sing, but at present members of the congregation are not permitted to sing.  Please sit and enjoy the music and follow the words of the hymns.
  • Please wait to be directed when to leave. This may mean using either the Flower Vestry or Choir Vestry doors to exit the church as well as the main door.
