"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." – Matthew 18:20
SERVICE ARRANGEMENTS FOR MAY
Face coverings are no longer mandatory, but along with many other organisations we recommend that they continue to be worn as this will help to protect others, especially when singing, from the spread of droplets and aerosols.
There is socially distanced seating available for those who wish to use it.
At communion services, please come to the distribution tables without your mask on, so that you may eat and drink whilst in front of those giving the bread and wine, who will continue to wear a mask.
We will review these arrangements at the end of May
