Guidance on attending church services

  • there will no longer be any need to book for services,
  • there will be no need to wait to be shown to an allocated seat in church, or to socially distance, although we would encourage people to practise social distancing if they can
  • there will be no mandatory requirement to wear face coverings, but we would strongly advise people to do so, given that the government still ‘expects and recommends’ that we should wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed settings, particularly if we are in close proximity to others, and also recognising that not everyone has been double-vaccinated and that many people are clinically vulnerable.
  • We will continue to provide hand sanitiser for people to use as they enter our buildings
  • While the number of infections remains high during the current wave we shall not be encouraging communal or choral singing in church as it does result in a significantly enhanced risk of infection due to the increased projection of aerosols containing the virus
  • We also do not feel it would be appropriate or wise to offer a common shared cup, so until there is a significant change in circumstances we shall continue to offer communion in the form of wafers only.

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 – our Zoom services and on-line bible studies offer an alternative.
