UPDATE ON GUIDELINES
We have reviewed our guidance about opening and attending the Church in the light of the latest updating of the rules. The overriding principles continue to be that we need to maintain preventative practices to stop the spread of the disease: these include taking account of the prevailing local conditions, continuing to use sanitisers and wearing face masks, general cleaning to a good standard (with attention to frequent touchpoints), maintaining 2 meter separation and good ventilation and registration of track and trace details. For us that means continuation with booking system [as before supporting track and trace] continuation of stewards at Mass, sign of Peace remaining suspended and Holy Communion still under one kind only, in the hand. There are some relaxations within the Mass itself but overall we need to maintain our current practices. These can be found in our current guidance which can be downloaded from the link below
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic and the guidance from the Bishops Conference the Church is only open for limited purposes. Fr Anthony will continue to say private Mass, with the Intentions indicated in the weekly newsletter and all are invited to join spiritually, watching its live streaming; following its prayers at home; making an act of spiritual communion. We are also encouraged to care for each other by being attentive to the needs of our neighbour, especially the elderly and vulnerable; contributing to our local food banks; volunteering for charitable initiatives and organisations; simply keeping in touch by all the means open to us.
