Face coverings We ask that you continue to wear face coverings when in church, to make sure that this remains a place of welcome for those who are vulnerable with the recent changes in Covid restrictions. You are encouraged to wear your face covering at all times when attending services/events in the church including when singing, please, unless medically exempt. We also ask that you use the hand sanitizer available at the door on arrival. Mthr Lucy and the Wardens will continue to review our COVID-19 practices regularly, so please be aware of notices on the pew sheet and in church.
