We can welcome people back into the building safely for individual private prayer and reflection.
The guidelines issued by the Government and the Church of England have been reviewed by our church council. Hand sanitizer will be available on entry/exit but there are no toilet facilities. We are reminded that minimising the risk of spreading the coronavirus is still of great importance. Those at higher risk including; those aged over 70, those who are vulnerable etc, should remain at home as much as possible. Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 should be self-isolating and will not be permitted to enter the church building. It’s important to respect other people’s space by keeping a 2m distance and note that not all areas of the church may be accessible.
If an individual, or household, wishes to go to church to have some time for private prayer please contact Revd Richard (01728 830421) and a time and date that suits can be arranged. In accordance with the guidelines no books or printed material will be available in church, if you have a book of prayers or a Bible at home do bring it with you if you wish.
Information about online worship and other resources are available on the Church of England website www.churchofengland.org
A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God bless you and keep you.
From Rev Richard Finch
