ST MARY’S PARISH CHURCH
TEMPORARY CHANGE IN ARRANGEMENTS DUE TO OUR AREA DESIGNATION CHANGING TO ‘LEVEL 4’.
As you know, our area has now been designated as Level 4. This means a change to the maximum number of people who can attend a church service with immediate effect.
We have taken the decision to keep the church open for worship, although only a maximum of 20 people will be allowed in the sanctuary at any one time.
This includes those on duty, the minister and the organist. Therefore approximately 5 of the 20 people will be accounted for. This will leave space for 15 people approximately.
Bookings for Sunday services should still be made using the usual ‘booking system’.
When the number of people wishing to ‘book’ places for a Sunday service reaches 15, we would suggest that, because we have reached our legally allowed limit, we would be happy to book a place for them, and where appropriate their partners or household group, for the following Sunday service.
We will only be using the MAIN entrance. This will reduce the number of elders required and thus maximise places at services for other members of our congregation.
These arrangements will remain in place until there is a change to our allocated ‘Level’.
