Important Information



The Bulletin

The Bulletin is dated the 12th and the 19th of September.
Please, click the image above or click here to download the Bulletin.

 

Following the removal of England's lockdown restrictions (but encouragement to take care particularly indoors) the PCC have been looking carefully at how to move forward for St Mary's services in conjunction with guidance from the House of Bishops.
 
We recognise that we can only encourage people to follow these steps but we ask that you do where you are able. We are a mixed community with various vulnerabilities for ourselves and those we love and different feelings about risk. This guidance will be kept under review.
 
Please, unless exempt:
1.     Wear masks
2.     Wear masks for singing
3.     Maintain some social distancing
 
We will:
1.     Increase capacity with rows and some chairs closer together (& some further apart at the back)
2.     Keep the larger central aisle to allow people to pass more easily
3.     Keep the one-way system for those able to use it & work out appropriate set up & numbers for music groups to enable this
4.     Keep the entrance through the main door
5.     Keep collecting Test & Trace information (but recognise people may not wish to give details)
 
We are not going to serve refreshments after services at the moment and we will continue to have communion in one kind only.
 

Thank you for continuing to show love and care to one another in all of this.

We will continue to meet in Church for our 8.30 am service every week and the 10.30 am service is currently in Church on the 1st and 3rd Sunday (there is now no need to book, people can just attend). Zoom-only, on the other Sundays.
