New Year Lock-down: Our church building remains open for individual private prayer daily between 9am and 3.30pm, but on Thursday 14th January the PCC resolved to petition the Bishop of Rochester for dispensation, effectively closing down public corporate worship for the next few week. The decision will be reviewed in time to mark Ash Wednesday if we consider it is safe to do so.
Pre-recorded worship will be offered from Sunday 24th January. The link, together with readings and prayers will be posted here: https://youtu.be/ya15kLqJMUA
The wearing of face-coverings remains mandatory in places of worship. Exemptions apply for those under the age of 11 and those with respiratory conditions; those leading and reading can remove their face-coverings.
Please use the hand-sanitiser, both as you enter and as you leave, and please leave a tally mark on the chalk board to help us assess footfall and adjust our cleaning regime accordingly. Names and contact details are recorded with explicit consent on Sundays to enable our co-operation with Track & Trace efforts in the event of a local breakout. A QR-code is also available to scan into the NHS Track & Trace App.
