Our church building is open for private prayer and public worship

Whenever you come to our church building, for private prayer or a service these are the things we need you to do to keep safe and within the guidelines.

  • Sanitize your hands on entering the building and wear a face covering unless you are medically exempt.
  • Go straight to a place which is marked for sitting and stay there until you leave the building.


  • You can now sit in groups of up to six of multiple households, but these groups must be kept 2m distant from other groups. In this case please inform a warden so you can have one communion pot per household.
  • Please use the slip of paper to record your presence at the service for test and trace, details will be given on the slip and in the notices
  • Enter the building through the North Door and leave the building via the West door.
  • Follow instructions on the distribution of communion, stay in your seat.
  • When you leave the building don’t block the exit door and other people’s paths (maintain the 2m social distancing).
