When you come to church

In order to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we strongly encourage you to:
 
  • wear a face mask, covering your mouth and nose, if you are able to do so
  • sanitise your hands when entering and leaving the church
  • avoid touching or kissing the icons – they may be reverenced with a deep bow
  • be aware of the needs of others – remember that some people are at high risk from Coronavirus, and may need to stay further away from other people
  • maintain social distance whenever possible
  • follow any additional instructions given by the steward
We also ask you to continue to support NHS Test & Trace by signing in using the NHS app and QR code displayed in the church, or by completing an NHS contact form available in the narthex.
 
If you have tested positive for Coronavirus, or if you have been told to self-isolate, you must not attend church until it is safe to do so. Information about self-isolation may be found here.
 
If you think that you or a member of your household has Coronavirus, please do not come to church. For more information about Coronavirus, or to check whether you have symptoms, look here.
 
If you are at high risk from Coronavirus (e.g. because of certain medical conditions) you are strongly urged to look at the NHS advice before deciding whether to come to church, and to follow the guidance about keeping yourself safe.
