Online Church

Although the Government has announced the end to most legal restrictions , this does not mean that the threat from Covid is over. We will still need to take some precautions to keep each other safe.

Worshippers should take a Lateral Flow Test no more than 24 hours before they attend church and not come unless the result is negative.

Face coverings are no longer a legal requirement, but they remain a helpful way of preventing the spread of any airborne disease, not just Covid. Some people are still concerned about Covid, and it is good practice to cover up for their peace of mind, so please carry a mask with you at all times. Masks will remain available at the back of church. Please also wear a covering if you think you might have a transmissible disease such as a common cold.

As much as possible, people are asked to follow the one-way system in the church.

There is once again no maximum capacity for attendance. We should, however, maintain appropriate distancing inside the building where possible. Physical contact with people from outside your household should be avoided, although it’s no longer mandatory.

Refreshments after the service are once again available. These will be served in the Parish Rooms.

For those not comfortable with these measures, we will continue to provide our online worship as an alternative. The Rector is allowed to bring Communion into peoples home, as well. If you are not comfortable in church, or if you would like the Rector to visit for any other reason, please contact him on 742494. Even if you can’t come to church, the church can come to you,
