Legally we were allowed to hold services in the church building again from the start of July. But the PCC decided, in the interests of safety, to delay till at least August to give us time to put the necessary plans and precautions in place, according to the guidance we have been given on safe spacing (including in the vestry), use of one-time service leaflets, hand-cleansing, surface cleaning, one-way routes …. and of course how to administer Holy Communion.
More news on services in church soon.
We also have to remember we now only have one minister who can lead Eucharistic services, and he is also leading online services.
