MESSAGE FROM REVEREND KATHRYN BUCK
I hope this message finds you all well.
As you no doubt have heard there have been some further announcements from the government on the re-opening of Churches, we are awaiting the new guidelines on how and when this can happen and we hope this to be in place within the next 2-3 weeks.
We would anticipate a number of arrangements will have to be in place in Church before the services can resume and we also think it is unlikely that a communion can take place just yet. The ministry team are meeting soon to make plans and discuss the guidelines and then we can advise you of a date.
In the meantime it would be helpful if you could let Reverend Kathryn know if you feel at this time that you are not quite ready to come back to Church with all the safety measures in place, please if you could drop her an email or telephone call to let her know so we can gauge what congregation numbers we are likely to expect. if you have any friends who you think this information would also benefit please give them a call and also ask them to call or email Rev Kathryn if they feel they are also not quite ready to return to Church.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon, we shall update this information with the new guidelines as we have them. In the meantime if you are visiting Church for individual private prayer, please continue to respect the social distancing measures that are in place. There is plenty of signage in Church advising you of the measures we have in place, these are to assist with the cleaning and sanitising of these areas at the end of the day.
The Church will be open daily from 9.00am to 5.00pm, please leave the main door to Church open when you leave.
Please, If you have any questions or concerns at all please contact me by phoning me on 01422 202424.
