St Bartholomew's Church
With restrictions lifted we are slowly returning to the way it was.
The following is the current Government guidelines for safe 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 will 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.
Face coverings are no longer required by law in any setting. However, the Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
COVID-secure rules, including table service requirements and restrictions on singing and dancing, will no longer apply.
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.
Please wear a face mask where possible. Singing is now permitted so please keep face mask on where possible.
Remain in pew during the Peace.
One way for Communion.
Thank you for understanding.
