Covid – safe rules for attending church services

Please observe the following Covid – safe rules / guidelines whilst in church:

At both churches: We encourage all our congregations to wear masks during our services, if they can, and to maintain appropriate distance from each other. Hand sanitiser will be available for use by the entrance door. Holy communion will for the moment continue in one kind only.

At Capel: We have designated the front pews for those who would like to sing during the service. These pews will have hymn books and kneelers available. Please leave the hymn books in the pew when you leave. Please continue to wear your masks when singing. The back pews are available for those who would prefer not to sing and maintain more social distance. One of the hymns will be designated as an offertory hymn. The bag will be passed round by the sidesperson but should not be handled by others.

At Ockley: We have taken the decision to have no congregational singing at present, this will be reviewed in September. Prayer books will be available, please leave them in the pews at the end of the service. The collection plate will be on the table at the back of the church for donations.
