Legislative powers which assist the mitigations against the covid-19 virus transmission have been rescinded by HM Government. Nevertheless, there is an encouragement to personal and corporate responsibility in this area; as the Prime Minister said in a recent statement “The pandemic is not over.” Even without legislation in place, the Church in England and Wales will be adopting a cautious approach to capacity and activity within our buildings, especially at corporate acts of worship.

 At St Mary’s we ask everyone attending our premises to take note of the following:

  • ‘Track and Trace’ rules have changed. Since Monday 16th August it is no longer a legal requirement to provide contact details at a venue. If someone attends our premises who is found to be a Covid positive case, we will inform everyone on our parish email database. However, if you are not on our database and you want to be alerted you may provide us with your contact details or scan the displayed NHS QR code on your phone.
  • When you come to an outdoor Mass in the fresh air of the garden, wearing a face covering is a matter of personal choice and responsibility.
  • The congregation are asked to spread out.
  • When inside church, the congregation are asked not to kneel if someone is sitting down on the pew in front of them.
  • If members of the congregation would like to ensure social distancing they may pick up a ‘Please Leave Space’ sign (available in the porch) and place it on the seat beside them in their pew.

Your cooperation is appreciated.
