Services

Our church buildings are now open for limited public services and Private Prayer with restrictions.

Following new guidance regarding the number of people which can meet indoors under the ‘Rule of 6’ we understand the new regulations will not apply to public worship or individual prayer in church buildings as these are COVID-secure.

NHS Test and Trace: at all services we are required to ask for name and telephone numbers for Test and Trace purposes. Details will be kept securely and shredded after 21 days. For booked  services you will be asked for this information when you book.

Face coverings are a legal requirement (unless an exemption applies) but may be removed temporarily for those leading the service (including readings and intercessions) and to receive Communion.  Please note that face visor does not meet the definition of face covering as set out in government/CofE regulations.

Communion services: Communion will be through wafers only

To ensure social distancing can be maintained, booking is required for all services—see contact details below
