Protecting against Coronavirus

As a church, we want to ensure that all who join us for worship and other activities are confident that we are following guidance that has been issued by both the Methodist and Anglican churches to reduce the risk of Coronavirus.                   

With this in mind we are asking that all wash their hands with soap and water and/or use available hand gel when arriving at the church. 
Also please do not shake hands when greeting each other or sharing the peace.

There will also be some changes to the way we administer Holy Communion in that for the time being we will use wafers instead of bread, and we will not be using the Chalice, but both the alcoholic and non- alcoholic wine will be served in the small individual glasses.

As we adapt to these measures, we pray for all those affected by Coronavirus and all those who are involved in work to control and treat it.
