Covid-19 Church Update
"Rejoice in hope be patient in tribulation be constant in prayer."
Our Response - Services (Update on 19/12/2020)
PLEASE NOTE CHURCHES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID 19 the below will apply when we repopen. (08/01/2021)
All Saints is open every Wednesday at 3pm and St Bridgets Sunday at 10:30am.
However, before you all stop reading and turn up for the services there are a few things you need to be aware of.
You must book if you want to come – to book in All Saints contact either Hazel or myself (01656880328). For St Bridget’s contact either Joy Newton or myself again.
Since we are limited in the number of people who can attend, we kindly ask that you only book yourself into one of the services each week. This is to allow as many people as possible to get a chance to come.
If you managed to come to a service one week, then do not expect to be able to attend a service the next week. however, you are welcome to call the day before to see if there are any unclaimed seats.
You will be required to complete a track and trace form upon arrival.
You will be required to wear a facemask throughout the service.
The service will be a morning or evening prayer.
If you are unable to attend for any reason, please let us know so we can give your space away, or pass it onto someone else whom you know wanted to come.
St Bridget’s service time is 10:30 for the time being.
We are still a long way from things returning to normal, but we are slowly getting there!
Our Response - We were open for private prayer
Now that we have resumed services the church is no longer open for private prayer. A huge thank you to all those who made it possible to be open over the last couple of months!
St Bridget’s Church Wednesdays at 11:00-12:00
Safety has been our chief priority hence why it has taken so long to get them open, we have wanted to make sure everyone feels/is safe in the churches and senior diocesan clergy have had the final say on their opening.
If you have any questions then please reach out through all the usual channels of communication.
So that you know what to expect when you visit St Bridget’s on Sunday I have put together a quick video to explain the measures we have put in place.
