I am pleased to say that the church is now hosting public worship on Sundays with eucharistic services at 10.00am and 11.00am. We have worked hard to ensure that all are safe at these services and that social distancing protocols are strictly observed. This means that we can only accommodate a limited number of households for each service. In order to manage this situation we require you to book in advance every time you wish to attend, using the Eventbrite website. We know this does not sit easily with our aim of being as inclusive as possible but it is the only way for the time being. More detailed guidance for booking is available on our Facebook page and in our weekly newsletter. The Facebook page can be accessed here and if you wish to receive our newsletter please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The church is currently open Monday to Saturday 9.00am until 12.30 am for private prayer. When you enter the church for this purpose please understand that social distancing rules will apply. Please enter through the south door (nearest the parish centre) and sanitise your hands using the gel provided. Only part of the church is available and seating is marked. There is a facility for lighting candles. Leave via the north door (wheelchair users may use the north door for entry and exit – the ramp is easier
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 email@example.com or to my colleague Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that your prayers are prayed, on behalf of the Church.
With every blessing,
