Coronavirus

We are using the following practices to try to ensure everyone is, and feels, safe:

  • Please wear a mask within the church if you wish to do so
  • Use the hand sanitiser as you enter the building
  • Keep a distance between yourself and others.
  • Follow the one way guides
  • If you do not wish to take part in singing, please, sit in the the South aisle (to the right of the entrance) or in the Guild Chapel area.

We are still only taking communion in one kind.

We hope that everyone feels comfortable and welcome in our church. Below are some details that may be helpful to you.

Hearing Loop: – we have a hearing loop which is used in the services where the pa-system is used.

Large Print – we have large print hymn books available on the welcome desk as you enter church. Please ask the sides person if you would like one.

Toilet Facilities: there is a toilet, which is accessible for a wheelchair user. You need to go through the choir vestry to find it.

Level Access: paths to the church are quite steep and made from uneven slabs which are tricky for a wheelchair to negotiate. Once you are inside the church it is mainly level apart from: a shallow step up to the chancel, and another to the altar; a shallow step into the choir vestry. There is a deeper step up into the Lady Chapel.

Seating: There are pews in the nave with a shallow step before you enter them. There are chairs (without arms) in the North and South Aisles and the Lady Chapel. There are various places around the church where a wheelchair user can sit comfortably.

Taking Communion: If you wish to take communion but are unable to go up to the altar then please make a sides person aware of this. The minister will bring communion to you in your seat.

Children

We love to have children as part of our congregation. They have their own area within the church with toys, crayons, paper and books. During the services there are often separate activities available for the children as part of Sunday Club. If your children prefer to sit with you we also have service books suitable for them to use. A baby changing facility is available in the toilet.
