Church Reopening for Prayer and Public Worship

Please respect social distancing and use the hand sanitiser as you enter and leave, which will
help us keep one another safe. For the same reason the toilets will be locked.
During the lockdown, we’ve been reminded that every single one of our homes is a place of worship and a house of prayer. So wherever you pray, may you know God’s presence and His blessing.


Please Note:  access to the church from the car park is flat and involves no steps

*Re-opening for Public Worship*

Guidance for churches to re-open for worship came out on 30th June and it will take some time to process it. There are restrictions on singing, music, communion and after-service fellowship, along with social distancing and other precautions. In practice this probably means
that a safe maximum number at each church will be around 12-15 people and we will have to make services shorter and simpler.

We are not proposing to re-start public worship immediately. The PCC will be looking at this at a special meeting on Saturday morning. There will be a survey sent out by email and paper next week to gauge how many people actually want to worship in our church buildings at present,
which will enable us to plan things. Some services may be streamed from the church buildings over the coming weeks, but we are going to take our time to come up with a sensible plan for resuming public worship. In any case, St Peters will be out of action for the whole of July so please do not turn up at either building this Sunday morning!
