With the end of most legal restrictions but the continued threat of Coronavirus, we want the church to continue to be a safe place for everyone. You may wish to wear a face covering. For now, Holy Communion will continue with just the distribution of the bread. If you have a concern being with a larger group of people, please consider one of our smaller Sunday or midweek services (see noticeboard & website for details) and all our services are available live and recorded on our YouTube channel.
We continue to be mindful of those who are vulnerable or anxious about public gatherings.
When you come into the church there will be hand sanitizer available and you can still use the NHS app QR code. It will be your decision whether or not to wear a face covering. Clergy and servers will still wear one in preparation and giving communion.
A collection plate is available at the entrance for those wishing to donate cash or use an envelope or the contactless device. Most of our regular congregation now give by standing order and I would encourage you to consider this if you have not already done so. We will continue to exchange the peace as we have been doing in recent months, in other words with a friendly gesture, without handshakes or hugs!
For Holy Communion, I sense that many would be anxious about reintroducing the wine chalice at this time. So we will not do this for now, but will keep it under review for when it feels more appropriate.
8am Holy Communion has returned to the Langton Chapel.
