Covid-19 Update

coronnavirus 2

Now that government restrictions have been lifted, it is no longer necessary to pre-book to attend services at St Mary’s.

We want you to continue to feel safe so we are keeping some measures in place for everyone’s benefit.

We will request Track and Trace details when you arrive (QR code or these contact cards) and we encourage you to wear a face covering whilst in the church building, particularly when singing.

Communion will continue, until further notice, to be in one kind - the consecrated bread - and not the common cup.

Hand sanitiser will be available and we will ensure that anyone wishing to maintain social distancing will be able to do so.

We aim to livestream one service each Sunday on YouTube and one sermon each Sunday will continue to be recorded and available of this website here

Evening Prayer will be in the North chapel every first Tuesday of the month and on Zoom on the other Tuesdays.

We are feeling our way in this and will gradually remove other restrictions in due course as we feel safe to do so.

Please also see our Services in Church and Online page and our Church at Home page  for ways in which you can worship if you can't get to church.
