Church wardens Dianne Brackley and Val Walker have announced that there will be a trial morning service at St Mary's Church at 10.30am this Sunday, 16th August.
This will be a short 30 minute service of worship and prayer, led by Canon Phil Groves. Holy Communion will not be offered at the service.
They write: "We are not permitted to have any singing during the service or to serve coffee. It will be a very different way of enjoying worship and fellowship, adhering to the social-distancing requirements. Pew spaces will be limited and the after-service fellowship, normally so much part of our time together in church, will sadly not be possible in the church setting. Everyone attending will need to wear a mask or face covering, and provide contact details to comply with the track and trace process.
"If you would like to attend, we need to know in advance, so please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01844 291108) with your details. We can then confirm your place.
"Thank you in advance for your cooperation."
