You may have already noticed the announcement in the media that Churches are to be permitted to re-open for private prayer. The good news is that St. James’ is to re-open on Monday 15th June and each day following, until circumstances change, from 9 am until 12.30 pm.
Please understand that social distancing rules will apply and as you enter through the South Door (the one nearest the Parish Centre) you will need to sanitise your hands with the gel provided.
Seats clearly marked with a white paper with a black + are to be used for your quiet prayer-time, please. Certain areas of the Church will not be in use, to help with the cleaning regime.
A Sand Tray for prayer-candles will be in a prominent and safe place, and a contribution towards the cost of the candle would be much appreciated.
You are asked to leave via the North Door (the one nearest to Church Street) when you have finished your prayer-time. If you are wheelchair user, please feel free to enter AND exit via the North Door – the ramp is much better.
Most importantly, I want you to feel welcome and safe in your Parish Church – and if you have any reason to ask for prayer, please send your request to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or to my colleague Louise at email@example.com and we will ensure that your prayers are prayed, on behalf of the Church.
With every blessing,
(Brian Prothero, Rector of Saint James’ Parish Church, Weybridge.)
