From Sunday 5th September

The Churchwardens and Ministry Team have met to consider the next steps to reopen Church.  In light of the current advice from the Diocese and the National Church, we will now move to the next stage.  Services will resume at 8:00am replacing the current 4:00pm service.  9:45am will continue as usual.  

1. There is no need to pre-book your place.  We will not keep a Track and Trace list, but the QR code is still available to use if you wish.

2. Please wear a face covering in Church for everyone's peace of mind.

3. Almost all pews are available to use, but we have instituted a "Zig-Zag system" to maintain the "one metre plus" social distancing recommended by the Government.  These places are marked out with the kneelers.

4. Please use the one-way system to receive Communion.

5. Please do not attend Church if you have been told to self-isolate or have symptoms of Covid-19.

6. At this time we are not ready to exchange the Peace physically nor to receive from the shared chalice.

7. The best news is that the choir will be singing this Sunday.  We will all be able to sing again together in the next few weeks.

8. Sunday School and Little Fishes are due to relaunch very soon.  St. John's toddler group has just met this week.

Thank you for your patience and support these many months as we continue to navigate these challenging times.  It is my hope and prayer that we return to as close to normal as possible very soon.  

 


Coffee!
Coffee after the 9.45am service will be available to pick up in the Coffee Lounge and take OUTSIDE to enjoy on the patio or churchyard. Please maintain social distancing to avoid sharing Covid. If anyone would like to help with the Coffee Rota, please contact Anne Beales or Janet Flemming.
Thank You!
