Staying safe

  • Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss/change in their normal sense of taste or smell) should not attend church.
  • Hands must be sanitised on entering and leaving church.
  • Wherever possible, a distancing of at least one metre should be adhered to between households.
  • Those who are able to do so must wear a face covering.
  • If the local area is in Tier 2 or Tier 3, people may only sit in household groups or support bubbles.  If the local area is in Tier 1 people may also sit in any group of six people.
