COVID-19 Information

As we begin to open up more, here’s an update on what is happening at present from online services, Zoom coffee, “in person” services and opening of our church buildings.

Sunday Worship online and Zoom coffee

We continue to livestream our Parish Eucharist at 10am on Sunday morning. You can join the service on Facebook and download the order of service from our Worship Online page.

Our service is followed by a time of fellowship on Zoom. Please contact a member of the ministry team for the Zoom log-in details.

Pause for Prayer

Monday to Friday 10am livestreamed on Facebook. This is a chance to stop and spend time with God, either at 10am or at any point later in the day or week.

Pause for Prayer will be taking a break during August 2021, but will be back in September.

Iona Service

Tuesday 7.30pm livestreamed on Facebook. This is a short service in the style of Iona, using a Celtic-inspired liturgy. 

Zoom Coffee

Tuesday 10.30am and Thursday 3pm on Zoom. This is a chance to share fellowship with each other on Zoom. Please contact a member of the ministry team for the Zoom log-in details.

We are now offering more “in-person” services, including Sunday mornings at one or two of our churches.

We are now considering the national church guidance on worship following the removal of government regulations on July 19th and will be making further announcements shortly. 

Whatever is decided, please note

  • You are now allowed to sit with other people if you wish (and of course if THEY wish too!) so we won’t be setting out chairs according to a seating plan.
  • We will have available some laminated cards which inform others that you would like to maintain distance – if you want to keep distance you can either choose chairs which are already spaced apart or take a laminated card to put on the seats on either side of you.

All services until mid-September are shown in the parish calendar. Booking will not be required for services after Sunday 26th July. For a summary, just check here.

You are asked to continue to wear a face covering in church, unless you are exempt.

Our church buildings remain open for private prayer – generally during daylight hours. However, there may be occasions when you will find the buildings locked. This may because the church is being used for a funeral and needs to be kept clean for this purpose. It won’t be possible to keep you updated with all the times that this will be. We apologise and thank you for your understanding.

We ask all visitors to abide by the government guidelines:

  1. Please do not enter the church if you have symptoms of Covid 19 or have been asked to self-isolate.
  2. Please wear a face mask inside the church unless you are exempt.
  3. Please use the hand sanitizer provided and wash your hands at home before and after visiting the church.
  4. Please visit only individually or with members of your household and do not arrange to meet others at the church.
  5. Please maintain 2 m distance  at all times and do not enter the building at the same time as others are entering or leaving.
