Notes:
*On return to Church please be assured that while the services will still be posted online, only the Rector and the Ukulele player will feature on camera.
Since the start of the pandemic the clergy have been advised to receive the wine in Holy Communion on behalf of the congregation and I would quite understand if people want to receive the bread spiritually especially as you will be wearing facemasks indoors.

*Sun 8.30am Holy Communion Services cancelled until restrictions are lifted on 29th June 2020
Select Vestry (8th April) and Easter Vestry (19th April) postponed due to Corona Virus

Please read re: reopening:
Churches will open their doors again on 30th June with services starting 5th July unless we are advised otherwise. We plan on resuming with our 8.30am Holy Communion service without hymns. At this service we normally had less than fifteen people so we don’t anticipate that social distancing will be a problem, this service is quiet and meditative. As our 11.00am services resume I expect there will be some reluctance for parishioners to congregate.
We plan on having every third pew in use with two meters dividing non household members.
Photographs to give an idea of what social distancing at two meters will look like in church,
If numbers require, we can use our porch and vestry which are wired for sound and we also have the option of using our halls where we can broadcast the service live. We will use sheets instead of hymn books and prayer books. So, plans are in place for keeping everyone safe while still being able to come together as a parish community. As guidelines recommend facemasks should be worn while congregating indoors. Please see photos highlighting social distancing in Church. When people are exiting, we envisage opening both doors at entrance of church and will encourage people to leave the building quickly and have a chat outside in the open air. Regarding Holy Communion, I will wear a mask for the consecration and distribute in the aisle and I will quite understand if people want to receive spiritually.
