From Sunday 12 July 2020, services in church will resume with Morning Worship (not Holy Communion as prior to the lockdown).
It should be stressed however that this will feel very different from prior to the suspension of services in March. The seating has been arranged to allow for social distancing. Singing is not permitted, so although we can listen to hymns/music our `participation` will need to be silent. The sharing of the Peace is also not permitted. In the administration of Holy Communion only the bread will be received as the distribution of the chalice remains suspended.
Please remember hygiene and social distancing measures, including the use of hand sanitizer both going in and going out of the church building.
Despite all of the above we hope those of you who are able will come to join in worship together. If there are other issues that you need to be aware of the Churchwardens will be in touch
Please like and follow our Facebook page for the latest updates from us.
Stay safe, and God Bless you all.
