Important News – Phased Reversal of Lockdown:

Please note that because the War Memorial in Plaxtol is in a public space, it is subject to Government regulations for outdoor worship and large gatherings are not permitted at the present time.

Plaxtol Church is now open daily (9am-4pm) for individual private prayer, and for corporate public worship on Sundays (see below). As of 8th August, however, the Government’s Regulations make the wearing of face-covering 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.
