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. Masks are mandatory. In services of Holy Communion communion will be offered 'in one kind' only (ie only the bread).
