Services Coronavirus (Covid 19) Update September 2021 Although all legal restrictions have been removed, the guidance and advice from the Church of Emgland focuses on caution due to the relatively high rates of Covid 19 in the community. Two services are taking place each month, normally on the first and third Sundays, but there may be some variation in this pattern occassionally. In order to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid 19, a number of safeguards continue to be required: ● The social distancing requirement has been reduced to 1m. This means that more pews can be used, increasing the capacity of the church to approximately 34. On this basis, the booking system has ceased. Face coverings are recommended to be worn, particulaly while moving around the church. Singing of hymns is planned to begin on 5th September at the Patronal Festival Songs of Praise. Communion services are to be re-started. All services are at 10.00 am. The current plan for services is as follows: 19th September Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity - Holy Communion 3rd October Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity - Morning Prayer 17th October Twentieth Sunday after Trinity - Holy Communion 14th November Remembrance Sunday 21st November Christ the King - Holy Communion
