Guidance for coming to a church service
please wear a face covering
New guidance from the government and C. of E. strongly advises the use of face coverings.  This need not be a mask – it could be a scarf or bandana.  There are certain recognized exceptions, e.g. children under 11, and people with disabilities which would make it impossible for them.  Remember masks should be handled with care.  And the most important precautions are still FREQUENT HAND WASHING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING (2 YARDS APART).
Please consider if this is OK for you
  – those with any health issues should still be staying away from others
Some very committed members will feel the time is not right for them
Please come to ONE of the five Masses – so we don’t all come at once

Social Distancing Guidelines

2m social distancing to be maintained at all times

Masks not obligatory – up to you

Use hand gel on arrival & departure, & before Communion

Sit only on marked benches (couples/households can sit together)

If children come they must sit with carers for the whole service

No singing, no raised voices – silence in church is best

No collection plate to be passed round  (offertory bucket at the back) or a link to the On-line Giving App will be provided

Approach one by one for Communion, standing (not using rails)

Communion will be in one kind (wafer) only

Chat after service outside (still keeping 2m apart)

Very Limited Toilet facilities will be available

Worship with joy in our hearts and pray for those who can’t come

COLLECT FOR BIBLE SUNDAY


Blessed Lord,

who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:

help us so to hear them,

to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them

that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,

we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life,

which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen.
