We very much look forward to resuming public worship here at St Mary’s with Morning Prayer. From Sunday 27th September 2020, we will begin Holy Communion again.
Please note that there will be a few restrictions on our normal practice, in line with Government guidance and that of the Church of England. Hand sanitiser will be available on the way in and we are asking people to adhere to social distancing rules.
There will be no parking in the churchyard to leave the area outside the Church free to welcome and say farewell to each other and also ensure that there is space for a socially distanced queue for those waiting to enter church. Stewards will be on duty to guide people to their seats. For the time being Church bibles will not be available, please feel free to bring your own with you.
For the present, there will be no refreshments served after the service, but, please note, the toilets will be open.
For those who are unable to join us, we are looking at ways to continue with on-line services, alongside the services in Church. These will probably be live-streamed on YouTube. Please look out for further details on how they can be accessed.
Please note that if you do have any symptoms of covid-19 you are asked, for the good of others, not to attend the service but to seek medical advice.
We look forward to welcoming everyone.
