What to expect in church since the easing of restrictions on 19 July 2021

We thought it would be helpful to let you know what to expect now when you come to church on a Sunday.

We are very conscious that people will have different reactions to the easing of restrictions.  Some may be happy to see them go and be ready and able to do more and interact in a more normal way.  Others may still be uncomfortable without restrictions or may not be able to experience these freedoms in the same way that we used to. 

One of the most important things for us to remember  is to acknowledge and respect that others may have a different perspective on these things than one’s own.  Using this to inform our own actions will be necessary to allow us all to move forward positively.

With this in mind, we have decided that our services will fundamentally return to normal albeit with some adjustments.

Face coverings and physical distancing are no longer legal requirements.  We are leaving it up to individuals to decide, while respecting others, what is appropriate for them.  The government still recommends face coverings in crowded places and people may find it appropriate to wear one while arriving and leaving.  Equally, it is perfectly valid not to do so.  We also ask that, out of courtesy, you respect other people’s ‘personal space’, remembering that this may be larger for some than others.
