Update 4th September 2021
All legal restrictions have been removed. We have entered into a context of “personal responsibility”. With the numbers of infections at quite a high level across the country, it seems wise to slowly ease out of most of the practices we have become accustomed to
From 5th – 19th September
We will return to using bread rather than wafers for Holy Communion.
It will be an individual choice whether to wear face-masks at all, even when singing.
We will no longer keep a register of attendance at worship.
We will allow limited physical contact when we share the Peace, whilst respecting those who wish to refrain from handshakes etc.
Note: there is no change to how we receive Communion, ie, only the bread, received standing at the chancel step
