The wearing of face masks has become compulsory in enclosed public spaces from 24th July. You will need to wear a face mask if you are attending a church service on Sunday. Please bring your own as we don’t have supplies. Please bring your completed Track and Trace Consent Form.
There will be Holy Communion services on Sunday 20th September at 8am and at 10am. Please let the Parish Office know by 1pm on the proceeding Friday if you are coming to either service. Here is the weekly news sheet.
To comply with the Government’s GDPR regulations please complete the Track and Trace Consent Form before attending church so that a record of names and contact details can be provided, if required, to the NHS Track and Trace teams. Here is Saint John’s COVID-19 Privacy Notice during the pandemic. Here’s a letter explaining what you can expect as this new regime is applied in church.
All the online services can be found on our YouTube Channel and viewed at anytime.
