With appropriate spacing, we are limited to 29 people. The virus is still very much with us and we have a number of vulnerable people in our congregation. Please do not feel that you have to come to church. We would rather that you stayed well.
Please observe the following:
- Wash or sanitise your hands when you come into church.
- Please, if you are able, bring and wear a face mask/covering.
- Come in through the church door and out through the hall door.
- The toilets will be open – please sanitise your hands going in and coming out.
- There should only be one person in the toilets at a time.
- Use paper towels rather than the drier.
- Sit where there is a number – the service book will be there.
- Families can sit together but then the number at the end of the row should be turned over to signify it is not available.
- Sadly we cannot sing or have refreshments.
Instructions for receiving Communion
- Communion will just be the bread.
- We will line up for Communion.
- Please wait by the front pew and then alternate pews.
- When you have taken Communion please go around the outside of the pews to return to your seat.
- If you find it difficult to stand please stay in your seat and it will be brought to you.
In words from the Archbishops, “Let us continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable, and build our communities, even while separated.”
Prayers for this situation may be found on the Church of England website.
If you know anyone might appreciate this, particularly who cannot use the internet or who struggles to get to the TV or radio at times services are broadcast, there is a free phone line, 0800 804 8044 which the Church of England has launched called Daily Hope with hymns, prayers and reflections.

Services which can be prayed at home, and which include the daily Bible readings can be found on the Daily Prayer page.
Some ideas for children’s activities.
