Churches across the Circuit are gradually reopening for worship.  In order to do so all the necessary Risk Assessments and necessary mitigations such as sanitizer, posters and where to sit safely are in place.  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.

During August please seek information from the local church about whether and when worship will be held.  From September we hope all churches will try and be open, but we are aware that the current advice is frequently changing and we will adhere to all guidance.

Online worship will also be continuing.
