The impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to close our church buildings and stop many of our usual activities, we are moving to reopen and hope that some normality comes sooner rather than later to everyone's life,  but the vital work of the Church goes on and is needed now, more than ever.

What we are asking you to do to help us to follow guidelines

Each of our churches are following guidance provided and we ask you to help us by following this guidance when visiting any of our churches. The main points we ask to observe are:

 

  • Please follow instructions/requests from our Welcomers who are there to assist you and ensure everyone welcomed safely

  • If you are asked to wait outside before entering the church, this is because we are trying to prevent queuing inside the building

  • Please protect yourself as you feel appropriate for you eg. wearing a face mask, plastic gloves, visor etc

  • You will be offered the opportunity to sanitize your hands on arrival: please do so – this helps everyone

  • Please complete a Trace & Track form and leave it with us (you will be asked to complete one each time you visit) – these will be kept by us for 21 days and then destroyed. We will share the information with Trace & Track if requested to do so

  • Please observe the signs and directions about where to sit and how/when to move inside the church

  • If you are attending a Eucharist, clear instructions will be given about how Communion will be distributed and if/when you should move

  • At the end of the service you may be asked to follow instructions on how/when to leave the church – this is to avoid queuing and to maintain social distancing

  • Service Sheets are provided for worship – these are single use sheets and we ask you to take yours away with you and to use it in your own prayers and then to recycle it

 

As guidelines and advice change, we will adapt our own guidance.

 

Thank you for helping us to ensure we are all following the guidance provided.
