CORONAVIRUS        COVID-19          IMPORTANT NOTICE   

updated Friday 13th March

We are working to Church of England guidance which can be found here: 

https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches

Promoting good hygiene is still the best antidote and so we have put hand washing instructions next to all of our sinks, where we use soap and paper hand towels.  Everyone is encouraged to wash their hands before and after worship. 

Servers and clergy have access to a 70% alcohol based hand gel for use immediately before and during worship.  

Hymn books will be wiped with antiseptic wipes before and after distribution.

In addition: 

WE REFRAIN FROM HANDSHAKING OR TOUCHING EACH OTHER BEFORE WORSHIP AND DURING THE PEACE. 

HOLY COMMUNION WILL BE OFFERED IN ONE KIND ONLY  

The PCC has begun to draw up a Coronavirus Parish Continuity Plan to address Infrastructure, Communication, Worship, Pastoral Needs, Other Activities & Finance.
