COVID Precautions in our churches  Following the government changing of restrictions on 27th January 2022 the Ministry Team and the Churchwardens of both POTR and BLS have decided the following:

  • Buildings will be well ventilated during meetings and services
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance to all our buildings.
  • It is government recommendation to wear face masks in large public gatherings and we encourage people to wear a face covering during meetings and services if it is felt for personal safety and/or the safety of others.
  • Please choose to sit where you are comfortable and please be considerate of those who wish to keep a physical distance
  • Refreshments will be served at appropriate meetings and services.  Please feel free to stay in the buildings or if more comfortable take your refreshments outside

For the serving of communion there will be three options with the optional sharing of the common cup/chalice

  • In your place – please stand and someone will serve you just bread or bread and wine
  • At the altar rail taking just bread – please leave before the wine is served
  • At the altar rail taking both bread and wine (using the common cup/chalice)

These precautions are to maintain an environment in which we can all feel safe and everyone can be comfortable in attending our meetings and services. Click here to see our Church of England services guidelines
