Return to Church

It was great being back in church - the atmosphere and even the smell is a reminder of God’s continuing presence with us.  Also, it was good to hear Kirsty playing the organ and singing a beautiful solo.  The work done by Carole and Sarah in carefully devising a choreography for getting us to our seats and out again and keeping us safe during worship was comforting.  Thank you to them and to Barry for spraying the premises.

It was wonderful being back, worshipping in church and seeing people in real life, though at a distance and behind their face coverings. The steps put in place to keep everyone as safe as possible are organized well; and entering and leaving the church went very smoothly.  And what a joy to hear Kirsty play some wonderful pieces on the organ and to hear her sing.    Many thanks to Sarah and Carole, and all the others who have given their time and energy to make it possible to return to church.  A special well done to Kathleen who was wearing a colourful and nicely coordinated face covering and blouse.  Love to all,

  • Numbers are limited – ensure you book a space for you/your household or bubble by phoning or emailing Revd Mike between Thursday and Saturday lunchtime. 
  • Remember to bring the service sheet with you, as this will not be available in the church.
  • Wear a facemask within the Church.
  • Communion Sunday – if you would like to take communion, bring bread and wine with you.  Your mask should not be removed, just lift to take communion.

The new Rule of 6 will not affect your worshipping in the church, unless your ‘bubble’ contains more than 6 people. The things to remember are 4 Ds and a V: Distance – 2 metres, Density - not too many people, Duration – not too long, Direction – face the same way, Ventilation – we leave doors and windows open.
