COVID-19 Guidance

For our Sunday worship at both 8.00am & 11.30am we will be maintaining social distancing in the seating arrangements and in movement within the church. Communion will be distributed.

We have re-introduced congregational singing at 11.30am and face coverings are discretionary (unless numbers exceed 35 when they will be mandatory) at both 8.00am & 11.30am.

During the week the church will now be open, with sanitizer to be used on entering and leaving church.

For christenings, weddings and funerals face coverings will be required unless social distancing can be maintained (there would have to be less than 35 people present)

Daily prayers through Rev’d John’s ministry are offered for the health and well being of our community - both local and international.
