Changes within services

In view of the Church of England guidance we have made the following changes to our usually practice at services at this present time.

1. Only wafers are administered at Communion, not wine.
2. No physical contact is made when sharing the Peace.
3. No physical contact for blessings or laying on of hands.
4. No hand-shaking with ministers at the door.
5. Communion at the rail will be received standing. This is to avoid transmission by people touching the rail.
6. The collection plate will not be circulated. Plates will be at the back of church for people to leave offerings as they arrive or leave.
8. There will be no drinks or other refreshments served after services.
9. Everyone is asked to use the hand sanitizers on entering and leaving the church

Thursday Teas

It is with regret that Thursday Teas will be cancelled at the moment. They will resume as soon as possible.
