Achieving Our Vision

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

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

  • 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.


The Parish of Up Holland and Dalton takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding
