Lockdown Lifting Measures - July 2021 update

“Taking personal responsibility means responsibility for our neighbour, not just for ourselves, and taking precautions to protect those more vulnerable than we consider ourselves to be.” 
                                                                                                                                         Sarah, Bishop of London


Face coverings
We strongly recommend that these continue to be worn in our buildings during worship.
Recognising that this is now a matter of personal choice, an area in each church will be set aside for those who choose not to wear a face covering.

Registering for Worship
We will no longer be taking advance bookings for worship. However we do need to be able to assist the NHS in the event of an outbreak being associated with one of our buildings. Please download the NHS Covid App and bring you smartphone to worship to scan the QR Code every time you enter. Those without the App will be asked to complete the paper Track & Trace register upon arrival. Your details will only be passed on to the relevant authorities in the event of a local outbreak and will be destroyed after 21 days.


Social Distancing
We will contnue to advise people to socially distance from others inside our buildings.
People may choose to sit with others from outside their household bubble in groups of no more than six individuals. To help stewards seat everyone safely, this should be arranged prior to worship.


Hand Sanitising
As before, please apply hand sanitiser upon entering and exiting our buildings.


We would like everyone to benefit from singing as part of our worship. To mitigate risk, the congregation must wear face coverings whilst singing.

Those who feel unwell are urged not to attend worship, but seek a PCR test as early as possible.
We will continue to offer online alternatives for those unable to attend our buildings.

Each parish has set up a support network to enable you to access help and advice whilst you are in social isolation. Please see details below for each village and click on links to allow you to make contact via email.
