PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHURCH IS NOW OPEN FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES EACH SUNDAY
The Church will continue to be central to the life of our community in bringing light and hope in any way we can.
Under the new guidance, most of the previous legal restrictions have been removed such as social distancing; limiting numbers of people attending events; requirements to wear a face covering, including for singing and performance; & singing, music and performances generally.
However, to help those using our buildings feel safe and welcome, the recommendations are that we ensure that rooms are adequately ventilated where possible and practical; & that it may be suitable in crowded or enclosed spaces, particularly if ventilation is poor, to continue to wear face coverings to reduce the risk of transmission, particularly where we share spaces with people we do not normally meet.
Our main aim is to enable everyone within and outside the church to have access to worship, teaching and support, safely & responsibly, so we should continue to follow safer behaviours to protect ourselves and others:
ü Please do not come to church if you feel unwell or suspect you might have Covid 19. Continue to get tested and self-isolate if needed.
ü Continue to exercise good hygiene practice. Please use the hand sanitiser as you arrive & leave.
ü The services will still be live streamed, so if you are still nervous about coming to church, it will be available on-line.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
THE CHURCHES WILL BE OPEN FOR WEDDINGS, BAPTISMS & FUNERALS SHOULD THEY BE NEEDED.
ONLINE SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO BE BROUGHT TO YOU FROM STOKESLEY & GREAT AYTON.
