Opening our Churches after Lockdown

As the spread of Covid 19 is subsiding and Government lockdown rules are easing, we have been able to slowly open the doors of our two churches.
Neither church is able to ‘go back to normal’. There are many necessary restrictions still in place, so as to prevent any further spread of the virus.

But we are able to do some things which will enable us to gather in our buildings as a worshipping community.

Below you can see what is happening in each church across the benefice.
