  • check in by scanning the QR code which is by the hand sanitiser if you have access to the NHS-COVID-19 APP. We are legally required to display the QR code and request that if you have a smartphone you download the NHS COVID-19 APP which, at the moment, shows the FY8 area risk level is HIGH.
  • give your contact details when asked, (even if you have scanned the code) in case we need to contact you should anyone report that they have tested positive to Covid-19 after attending church and don’t have the NHS-COVID-19 APP
  • use the hand steriliser to clean your hands on entering church
  • wear a facemask which must cover your nose and mouth (except in extreme circumstances)
  • keep 2 metres (6 feet) apart from someone who is not in your household or social bubble
  • not to congregate inside or outside of church to chat with people who are not from your household or social bubble

Our services tomorrow are at 8.30am and 10am. You can download the service sheet for the 10am Communion service by clicking here

There is no need to book for our services, but please do remember to wear a face mask and keep social distance. You will be asked for you name and contact number when you arrive so that we can track and trace should anyone report they had Covid-19 when they were in church. Should you test positive to Covid-19 shortly after attending church please please contact the Parish Office and let Fiona know 01253 736488.

Under the new legislation, if you want to chat outside after the service, please keep to a maximum of six people and always remember to keep your distance.

We have put these procedures in place to keep each other safe. Spreading Covid-19 is real and it’s still a risk. You may be carrying the virus without knowing it, or without having any symptoms. We have come this far, let’s keep the virus in check. Look after each other. Stay safe. Keep your distance. Two metres equals six feet. It’s better to be six foot apart than six foot under.
