Please let Edward the Vicar know (see Get in touch button) if you intend to come to any of these services so we can have an idea of numbers. While the services will be quite brief and simple, and among other restrictions there can be no singing, it will be lovely to see everyone who can make it - all are welcome. To make the services as safe as possible arrangements will be in place to enable 2 metre social distancing, and everyone attending will be asked to use the hand sanitiser by the entrances on entry and exit. It is strongly advised that masks should be worn, and if for any reason 2 metre distancing is not possible, masks are mandatory. In services of Holy Communion communion will be offered 'in one kind' only (ie only the bread).
