Review of safety in the light of Covid 1st May 2022

The PCC reviewed the safety precautions we are taking in light of Covid, bearing in mind that we must remain welcoming to all, including those who feel vulnerable and are cautious about coming to church.

It was agreed that, in line with ‘society’, we will no longer recommend the general wearing of masks or have signage requiring distancing or hand washing.

We will, however, designate an area during services (until refreshments are served after the service) for the vulnerable in which masks and distancing will be required. This will be next to the Tyndale notice board. The choir will not congregate in this area. Carbon dioxide can be monitored in this area if it is occupied and ventilation increased if necessary.

Monitoring has shown that doors and windows do not need to open for our normal services with normal numbers of attendees. They will, however, be opened for events where the church is more fully occupied.

There will be no changes to other aspects of the service at this stage so there will be no processing, communion bread will be distributed at the pews and the peace will remain with waving only.

Sunday 27th March 2022 – Mothering Sunday

The recorded service this week  is led by Rev Lesley Hewish.

The last hymn is done differently this week – and the process is not a smooth as I hoped! A slide tells you to pause the video and click on a link to another YouTube video with the hymn. I am sorry, but that link is not live so you cannot just click on it. The link you need is https://youtu.be/M5Y5-fxLDfA which you should be able to copy and paste from here – or from the title of the video. Please let me know if you are aware of a smoother way of doing this!

–  The service in church at 9.30am will be a communion service led by Rev Lesley Hewish
–   At 3pm in church Rev Peter Marsh will be leading a special family service for Mothering Sunday, and there will be cake.
