Coronavirus Notice – Church Services

Dear friends,

We are delighted to announce that St.Mary’s is open for public acts of worship each Sunday currently at 10-30am for a shortened Common Worship Eucharist lasting approximately 45 minutes. We propose to open our doors again for an 8-00am BCP service each Sunday from 4 October 2020. As mentioned below, please email or contact Susie our Church Warden if you wish to attend one of these services as restrictions, for social distancing reasons , are still in place.

Services will look and feel differently as we must comply with all relevant guidelines to ensure we are ‘CoVid-19 Secure’ so that everyone can feel safe when we return. We ask you to read the attached letter carefully which aims to give you some idea of the measures we have taken to mitigate the risk of transmission of the virusand which outlines how the service will be conducted. We would like to assure you that a full risk assessment has been completed. A copy is available on our website.
You are most welcome to join us but, please note that, to satisfy the social distancing measures, there is a limit to the number of people we can accommodate in church at this time. It would be enormously helpful if you could indicate to Susie (church warden) if you intend to come to church on the 19 July by posting an email to her at “susiemapledoram@gmail.com
Blessings to you all and look forward to seeing you
The clergy and the church wardens
