We continue to work at helping make the church as safe a space as we can. With that in mind there will continue to be some restrictions in the church. These are listed below. Please be aware that others may wish to observe additional safety measures and respect their right to do so.
Individuals may wish to do more – eg wear masks in church at all times – but the restrictions we would keep would keep as mandatory for all would include
• social distancing throughout the church,
• masks and no singing in the South (chapel) aisle,
• a modified one way system (ie avoiding S Aisle except for those sitting there),
• sanitisers in all the locations we have had them
• clergy masked when distributing communion
• wine an option for those who choose to have it,
(administered by the priest dipping the wafer in the chalice)
• final hymn outside (so that everyone will have some opportunity to sing)
• no after-church refreshments
Track and trace continues (though optional)
