Guidance on attending church services

  • We will continue to provide hand sanitiser for people to use as they enter our buildings
  • Wearing of face coverings is a personal choice.  Please be considerate of those who, for a variety of reasons, may decide they wish to wear face coverings in church.
  • Increased ventilation may mean our buildings are colder than normal so please wear appropriate clothing.
  • At Communion services intinction (dipping) the communion wafer into the chalice is not allowed.  It is acceptable to only take the bread at communion.

If you are particularly vulnerable to the virus, by reason of age and/or underlying health condition, please do consider carefully if it is wise for you to attend church at present. We offer a monthly on-line service – see Zoom (on-Line service) above
