Update – Covid-19 local lockdown

Mike Coates:

Hi all here is the most up to date info for places of worship lifted directly from the Church of England website

The Government has introduced new regulations making it illegal for groups of more than six people to meet, unless covered by exemptions.

The intention is to limit the spread of the virus by minimising close physical contact as much as possible. When deciding whether to proceed with an activity, depending on local circumstances, please bear this principle in mind.

Areas covered by exemptions to the ‘rule of six’ include work, children’s activities and charitable services.

There is also an exemption that covers places of worship making it possible for more than six people to gather for acts of communal worship. However, it is not a blanket exemption for any activity in a place of worship.

This means that Sunday worship will continue in its current way.

It also means any other activity is restricted to no more than 6 people.

But we are asked to make a personal judgement in terms of our health. If you feel unwell stay safe, keep others safe and stay at home. We have high quality online services each Sunday
