Booking to attend a service

If you wish to attend a service you must book a seat for yourself and for anyone who is going to come with you.  You will be able to sit together if you are in the same “bubble”.  booking, a phone contact number will be required so that we comply with Track and Trace requirements. This information will be securely stored for 21 days and then destroyed. 


 

Booking Process

Booking is on a first come, first serve basis and will open from 9.00am Wednesday for the following  Sunday, with a deadline for each Sunday service being at 5pm on the preceding Saturday.
Bookings for the Wednesday services will also open from 9.00am on the preceding Wednesday. There will be a deadline of 5pm on the preceding Tuesday. 


To enable the maximum number of people to attend a service each week, please restrict yourself to attending only one of the two services. In order to make this a fair process, no phone messages or emails sent before 9am on the preceding Wednesday will be valid.

 

If you are able to attend on a Wednesday, please consider making this choice to enable spaces on a Sunday for those restricted to this day.

Keeping yourself and others safe
  • Please do not come to church if you or a member of your household has COVID-19 symptoms or is in quarantine.
  • Face coverings are now required by law in church so please respect this and follow Government guidelines.  Disposable face masks are available if needed.
  • Once you are shown to your seat please remain in that position until the service is over and refrain from moving around church to chat to others.
  • Please refrain from chatting socially in church.


Arriving at Church

Please expect to queue for a short while as there is a brief registration process to complete.  If you are using the NHS COVID-19 app please use your phone on entry to scan the church QR code.

On entry to church, a steward will sanitise your hands in the entrance porch. The stewards will check your name off on their list, explain some instructions, show you where the service pamphlets are and direct you to your seat.

We ask you to observe 2 metre social distancing when going to your seat. Please do not stop to talk to anyone. Unfortunately, it is not always possible for us to let you choose where you wish to sit. If there is no steward to guide you, please fill up from the front of the church.


Orders of Service

We are now using our usual service booklets. At the end of the service do not take these home but please leave these at the back of church on your way out.  We will make alternative arrangements for special services.


Receiving Communion

Following Church of England advice, Communion will be offered in one form, the wafer, only.

The stewards will direct you up to the front of church to receive communion at the chancel steps. Please follow the one-way system marked on the floor at all times.

Please queue two metres apart & refrain from speaking. Walk towards the priest in single file to the chancel steps where you will receive your communion wafer in the palm of your hand.


Leaving the service

After the service, please leave promptly and safely by the one-way system using the side aisles. Please deposit your service booklets at the back of church on the small table on your right as you go out.  Please take the pew sheets and all other paper materials (including paper tissues) home with you. Please leave church via the cloister doors. Please move away from both the exit and main doors and disperse immediately.


Toilets

The disabled toilet will be available in the church hall. If you need to use this facility please ask one of the stewards who will unlock the hall door for you.
