We have updated our requirements to attend church.

The following is the Government guidelines for places of worship:

  • There are no longer limits on the number of people you can meet. This means there are no restrictions on group sizes for attending communal worship.

  • Legal requirements for social distancing no longer apply and you will not need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with.

  • There are no legal restrictions on the number of people that can attend a place of worship, including at significant life events, such as private baptisms, and weddings.

  • There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering.

  • Whilst Government restrictions have been relaxed, it is still vital that the necessary hygiene and some precautions are kept in place in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

  • On entry there is hand gel, please use.

  • Remain in pew during the Peace.

Our first step to normality will involve the following:

  • Restart of collection.

  • Communion will be at the Altar rail (no longer one way)

Thank you for understanding.
