We have been delighted to be able to re-open our churches for worship
A look at the 'New Normal'
In line with current government guidelines and advice from the diocese here are a few of the changes you will notice
when we return to church for our worship.
Masks or face coverings are mandatory in the church building, unless an exemption is in place for the individual
Hand sanitiser to be used on entry and exit from the church building hand sanitiser stations are provided at the
entrance and exit of the church building. If possible separate entrance and exits are to be used if not practical then
care should be taken to ensure social distancing is maintained.
Within the church building seating is arranged to ensure social distancing is in place, same household bubbles may
be seated together.
It may, in the early days, help churchwardens arrange seating if you could advise them if you plan to join the service
in person. Details of how to access the service online will be published.
Currently the guidelines permit music to be played but currently congregations are not allowed to sing.
At the Peace ; sharing of the peace by physical contact not permitted
At Communion ; The hosts and chalice are prepared in advance following all hygiene procedures, the Minister will
hand sanitise before administering the sacraments;
The Minister will receive Communion in both kinds i.e. the bread and the wine, congregation
members will receive the host only sharing of the 'Common Cup' is not to be practised. A one way system will be in
place to guide communicants to receive from the Minister and to return to their places adhering to the social distance
Refreshments after the service ; currently the serving of refreshments is not permitted.
It will be very different and some of you may not feel ready to come back to church just yet, the services are hoped
to be available on line via Zoom and Georgie will provide a link to the Sunday service and the Thursday prayer
Track & Trace ;
Contact details of those attending will be collected and kept for a period of 21 days before deleting them
in accordance with government guidelines. This is in case of the need to contact anyone who has been diagnosed
with Covid symptons.
A Very different normal, but we pray our 'Normal Service' can be resumed as soon as possible
