In keeping with government guidance, we are delighted to announce that St Peter’s is open for public worship.

As you will appreciate, we are subject to considerable restrictions, and no doubt what we do will evolve over the coming months. For the time being, PRE-RECORDED SUNDAY WORSHIP will continue to be available online, and uploaded to YouTube late on Saturday evening as usual.

This Sunday, we will therefore be offering services of Holy Communion at 9 am and at 10.30 am. There will be music (but no singing), a short sermon, and communion offered in one kind (that is, wafer only); coffee will not be provided afterwards, and toilet facilities will not be available. Those who attend will need to use the hand sanitiser provided, and pews will be cleaned between services.

Please be aware that as from 8th August, wearing of facemasks will be mandatory in places of worship.

Because of the need to observe social distancing of 2m, we estimate we can accommodate roughly 60 people at each service, including limited use of gallery seating with restricted views. Those from the same household can obviously sit together. To ensure a place, some worshippers who would normally come to the 10.30 am service will therefore want to come earlier to the 9 am service. (We hope these arrangements will be sufficient for the moment, but obviously if we have to turn worshippers away this week because of lack of space, we will need to find ways of increasing provision in the future.)

Those who are shielding or vulnerable, whether on the basis of age or underlying conditions, will need to think carefully about whether they feel safe to attend. We also cannot as yet offer crèche facilities or Sunday Clubs for children; and children who attend will therefore need to be able to sit with parents throughout, and avoid breaching social distancing guidelines.

Anyone with potential COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, a high temperature, or loss of or change to sense of smell or taste) should self-isolate at home, and will therefore not be allowed into church.
