When you arrive at church you will be greeted outside and advised on the process for taking your seat in the chancel.  You will be asked to sit in specified pews/ seats – please note it might not be possible to sit where you would usually sit in church.  Please arrive in plenty of time and follow the instructions given.  There will be a plate at the entrance to the chancel for you to place money or envelopes in (if you wish to leave a donation – we will not go round with a collection plate) and sanitiser will be available as you enter church. You to will need to wear a face covering – for advice click here

We have had to ‘risk assess’ the church and carefully plan how we are going to keep the 2m social distancing rules or mitigate the risk where this is not possible.  This has meant that we have had to cut down on the number of seats we can use and on the number of people that can accommodate.   As a consequence we need you to ‘book in’ to attend worship.  Please contact Ali on 01427 788654 before 7.00pm on Saturday 19th September.  We look forward to seeing you on Sunday and do hope you can make it.

Also, as part of Track and Trace we will need to record your names and contact details (so if you get an answerphone please leave these details in your message).  These details will be held by the church warden for 21 days and then destroyed.  You will only be contacted using these details if Track and Trace need to contact you.
