Statement concerning church opening and closure during Covid-19 pandemic - Jan 2021
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, St John's parish church has sought to consistently review and update how we meet for public worship and private prayer. At times, this has involved the closure of the church building, with suspension of services, or the opening for private prayer only.
The current situation is being reviewed regularly in line with government requirements.
These decisions have been made following careful review of risk assessments and procedures for safe entry, exit, track and trace, distancing and hygiene within the church building, and in light of the spiritual life of those who attend. These assessments will be kept under constant review over the coming weeks and months.
During this time we will produce an alternative, online version of the weekly Parish Notes.
