We’re back! We have resumed our normal service times (10am on the first Sunday of the month and 9.15 on the rest). We are exempt from the ‘rule of 6’, but we are not allowed to ‘mingle’ (!) Because of social distancing, numbers are limited. Let the vicar know if you’re coming to reserve a place.
Singing is not allowed at the moment , wearing of face coverings is now mandatory in church unless you are exempt, we maintain 2m social distancing and a one way system of movement, we have hand sanitising stations throughout church and the building is sanitised after each service. We think church is a very safe place to be.
The ‘Covid Marshall’ from the Environment Agency did a spot check on church recently (yes, it’s a thing) and we passed with flying colours. Thank you to everyone who helps to keep us safe at church.
Children and church. We can’t run junior church at the moment – so we are providing personalised ‘activity bags’ for younger children to use during the service. They have pens/pencils, colouring sheets, quizzes or wordsearches and an activity linked to the theme of the readings.
Coming up next month
