Services Coronavirus (Covid 19) Update April 2021 The restrictions announced by the Government permit church services to take place in all Tiers, including the current (3rd) lockdown, subject to restrictions and safeguards being implemented. Services re-started on Easter Day Sunday 4th April 2021. Thereafter the intention is to have two services per month, normally on the first and third Sundays in the month, but there will be some variation in this pattern when there are five Sundays in a month and also when there is a wedding. (The Church of England guidance is that 48 hours has to be left between services, meaning that a service on a Sunday cannot take place if there has been a wedding the previous day). In order to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid 19, a number of safeguards continue to be required: A booking system will operate for every service because of the very limited seating available in St Mary's church in order to comply with the 2 metre separation requirement. Please do not attend unless you have been informed that there is a place for you. If you would like to have your name entered on the list for a particular Sunday service please send an email to us. Face coverings will need to be worn. No signing is allowed at present. If you are in the clinically extremely vulnerable category (as defined by the Government) we are asked to advise you to stay at home. The current plan for services is as follows, with all services at 10.30 am. 6th June First Sunday after Trinity 20th June Third Sunday after Trinity 4th July Fifth Sunday after Trinity 18th July Seventh Sunday after Trinity 1st August Ninth Sunday after Trinity 15th August Eleventh Sunday after Trinity 5th September Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity 19th September Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity
