Covid-19

The PCC meet regularly to review the Covid measures and consideration of the current government advice, the risks presented, whilst finding a sensible way forward to keep everyone safe they concluded that with effect from Sunday 27th March: 

·  We want to enable as many as possible to feel safe coming to a service in church, and so although the choice is yours, we continue to encourage you to wear a mask.  The latest Government guidance states:

“Face coverings are no longer mandatory in any setting but are recommended in enclosed or crowded places, particularly where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet.” 


·  If you have a case of Covid in your household, or have been a close contact, we encourage you to take a lateral flow test before attending church, and to wear a face covering.

·  We will return to coming forward to the rail to receive Communion.  If you wish to remain in your seat to receive, please indicate this to the warden on duty, so that we don’t miss you.

·  We will continue to space seating, ventilate the church, and provide hand sanitiser.

We are grateful for your willingness to comply and your trust in us to enable as many people as possible to feel comfortable and safe in coming to church.

Please chat to Kylie or anyone on the PCC if you have questions, comments or concerns. 

We are continually adapting what we do in accordance with the current guidelines, so keep an eye out here or on our Facebook page for any changes.  If you would like to receive our weekly reflections, prayers and news via email, please contact us to be added to our mailing lists, or click here to read online.  If you would like prayers, support, practical help, or just a friendly phone call for you or someone you know, then as your local church we would be glad to help.  We can be contacted via phone on 01923 676401 or email.
