Sunday Services at St Mary’s – an update on arrangements
We will continue to use our booking system for Sunday Services to enable staggered seating within pews and some allocated socially distanced seating areas. Stewards will be available to help direct you to your seats.
If you are presenting any symptoms of Coronavirus, please don’t attend the service but follow government advice on testing and isolation.
If possible, please perform a lateral flow test before attending the service.
Please wear a mask for moving around in the church and when singing.
Please bring your own bibles.
Communion will continued be administered in one kind only with no sharing of the common cup.
A full Risk Assessment is available from the Church Office.

St Mary’s AV Faculty Application
At St Mary’s we have seen the benefits of using cameras, monitors and tech equipment to stream our Sunday Services. We have now applied to the diocese for permission to install this equipment more permanently and effectively in our church building. All the documents and details relating to the changes involved are available for viewing at St Mary’s Church or at the Church Office.

If you wish to object to any of the works or proposals, then you should send a letter or email to the Diocesan Registrar to arrive no later than 3/8/21.

Said Communion
We will not be holding Said Communion Services during the holiday season.
