The introduction of compulsory wearing of face masks whilst in church has allowed us to now follow the 1 metre plus rule. This will allow us to get more parishioners into the church and avoid having to use the porch.
We hope you all approve of these changes and the benefits they bring. Nevertheless, we still ask that you be patient and remain in your seat until directed by one of the stewards to receive Holy Communion to give others the space and time they need under the new measures, and then follow the one-way system to exit the church.
All these changes have been approved by the diocese.
