COVID-19 GUIDANCE - UPDATED!

The Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic still affects many aspects of our lives and the situation is still evolving.

March 2022

Though many restrictions have now eased, we continue to take care to ensure everyone's safety.

It is no longer mandatory for face coverings to be worn in church, though do feel free to do so if you are more comfortable wearing a facemask. Social distancing guidelines have relaxed - but again, if you wish to maintain space between yourself and others during services, please mention this to one of the churchwardens or sidespersons.

We are no longer required to keep a record of those visiting the churches and the NHS Track and Trace notices can be removed.

Hand sanitiser is available to use on entering and leaving the church.

Our churches remain open daily for personal prayer:

We warmly invite you to join us at 9am on the first Sunday each month for our online service, led by Revd. Chris Wingfield, our Rector. In the Calendar you will find the scripture references for the Zoom services and you might like to read these as you set aside some time for prayer and reflection.

See the Calendar for details.
 

It has been wonderful to have the Benefice choir back to sing at many of our services and choir practices have resumed - see the Benefice Choir pages

The Children and Youth page has updates on 'Play and Pray' and Messy Church

If you know of anyone in your neighbourhood who might need practical or pastoral help then do contact a member of the Ministry Team or one of the Churchwardens.

Below are some prayers that you may wish to use:

For the Christian community

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.

They are set out so that you can read them as they are or perhaps cut into separate prayers to use each day:
