Dear Church Members
It has been lovely to see some of you at our private prayer sessions and we are now looking forward to inviting you back to additional Sunday services. As before these will be based on the Wednesday morning Holy Communion model but socially distanced. They will last 30-40 minutes, there will be no singing of hymns and they will involve receiving in one kind (wafer) only from small receptacles on a table to the right of the communion rail. Those whose mobility prevents them going up to the altar will have wafers brought to them in the usual way.
PLEASE NOTE: Government guidelines now make it mandatory for face coverings to be worn in church services by clergy and worshippers alike. Clergy may remove them to speak . This is in addition to social distancing.
As we are only able to accommodate 30 people at a time in church in line with the current restrictions, we shall continue with the current booking service.
HOW TO BOOK:
Ideally, we would like you to email the relevant booker but if you are not able to email please use the telephone numbers provided below and leave a message if there is no reply. We will email or phone you back to confirm your booking and your pew number. If you are unable to attend, please cancel any booking you have made so that vacant seats can be reallocated.
Bookings will open at 12 noon on a Monday for the following Sunday and close on Wednesday at 5pm.

You will receive confirmation and your pew number by email or phone.
If you are unable to attend, please cancel any booking you have made so that vacant seats can be allocated.
1. You may not be able to be seated next to your partner or friend as we have a very limited number of seats in pairs.
2. Under current track and trace guidance we will need to keep a list of church members at each service in case anyone at the service develops symptoms and the rest of the congregation who attended that service would be informed and would need to self isolate for 14 days. These names will be retained in the church safe for 21 days and then destroyed. We will presume that you agree to your name being kept on our list of worshippers at each service for 21 days, unless we hear from you to the contrary.
We look forward to seeing you very soon. If you have any queries about any of the above please do not hesitate to contact Margaret Pye (01922 458929) or Jane Alderson (01543 375982).
