Coronavirus – St Nicolas and St Wilfrids’ Churches
Last updated 3rd August, 2020
Public Worship Services
On Sunday 5th July, both churches reopened for services at the normal time. The Standing Committee met on Monday 29th June, to draw up risk assessments for each church, and to make plans for Sunday worship. These plans have been put into operation and those who attend are required to follow the protocols set out with regard to social distancing, hand washing and from Sunday 9th August to wear a face covering while in church.
Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals are once again allowed to take place in church, with numbers of attendees limited and social distancing rules applied.
Full guidance in respect of management of the coronavirus situation in Churches is published on the Church of England website.
Father Tony continues to produce the Weekly Pew sheet and a copy can be found here on the News and Reviews page.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The following is a copy of the letter sent out by the Vicar and Churchwardens regarding cancellation of all events until further notice due to the coronavirus situation.
