Most Churches across the Circuit are now open for worship. All the necessary Risk Assessments and mitigations such as sanitizer, posters and where to sit safely are in place. Copies of the Risk assessment are available on request. The church stewards will tell you at the door what is expected of you in terms of seating arrangements. Please note a recent change to Government advice is that all attending worship will need to wear a face covering.
Please check the Service Plan (Events page) for the information on any specific congregation.
Online and printed worship will continue to be available on this website.
