We are delighted that we can open our church doors for individual, private prayer, although we are sorry that the guidelines are still quite onerous, and we thank you for your co-operation, patience and understanding.
The church will be open on Wednesday afternoons, with 4 time slots until the end of September, 4pm, 4.45pm, 5.30pm, 6.15pm, each allowing 30 minutes of prayer in church. From October there will be two time slots, 4pm and 4.45pm only.
Five individual bookings are available for each time slot, although you will be able to book an additional place for a carer to be with you if required.
First choose a Wednesday, then choose one of the 4 time slots. Bookings will close at 5pm on a Tuesday for that week’s opening, so that welcomers will know they have an up-to-date list.
If you are coming with someone else from your household, please ensure that a booking is made for each person. You can ‘add additional tickets’ within the booking form.
If you need a carer to be with you, please enter their name and contact details in the notes section of the booking form, or phone the Church Office, so that we can make provision for an extra seat for them alongside you.
We need the contact details of everyone attending so that, in the event of any infection being detected, we can trace who may have been exposed.
Please arrive on time and ensure you obey all the social distancing rules and the guidance of the stewards. Please bring your own face covering, but if you don’t have one, we will have some available.
Please bring your own Bible or prayer materials, in compliance with Church of England and government guidelines.
Please don’t touch anything in church other than the chair you are sitting on.
In order to protect your community, please do not come to church if you are feeling unwell.
