Easing of Covid restrictions - From August 2021
 
Firstly very many thanks to everyone for their compliance with all the various measures we have had to put in place during the last sixteen months.  We can’t quite claim that everyone has always done what we have asked but in virtually every situation people have been helpful and willing to follow our lead.  This has all been to keep you safe but also to make you feel safe when you have come to church.
 
We are still asking you for your co-operation as we address the easing of the restrictions.  In some ways this is a hardest part because there is little in the way of legislation to guide us.
 
For the time being we are going to continue roping off pews so that we can keep social distancing and wash all the touch points between services.  Hand sanitiser will continue to be available all around the church and we will not yet be offering the wine at communion.
 
We particularly request that you continue to use face masks and this is especially important since we will be resuming congregational singing.  We strongly encourage this for the protection of each other.
 
The choir won’t be wearing face masks to sing but they have all individually decided to accept the proximity of others.  They will only be singing in the choir stalls so there will be no processions from and to the back of church.
 
Services will continue to be shorter in length but we will gradually reintroduce the recently omitted parts.
 
All of this will be kept under review with the constant theme of keeping you safe and making you feel safe.
