Services in church - 9:30am for young families, 10:45am for others

We are now able to meet together in church again. There will be two services at St Andrew’s on a Sunday morning at 9.30am and 10.45am. The 9.30am service has a particular focus on families with young children. It is hoped that there will be an afternoon service at 4pm at All Saints on the second Sunday of the month and Pamber Priory on the fourth Sunday of the month, subject to sufficient support. 

 Please use the hand sanitiser on your way into and out of church and move anticlockwise around the building. There is room for one household or two individuals in each available pew (2 couples at each end in the north aisle). Parents are asked to supervise their children. Sadly, there is no congregational singing at the moment. Please remain 2m apart from individuals from other households or bubbles.

 Regular congregation members will receive a link to an online form in our weekly e-mail to indicate which service they will be attending to help us keep the services safe. We will also ask those who have not completed the form for details when they arrive. We will keep data for 21 days to assist with the NHS Test and Trace system if necessary.

 Please do not attend if you or someone you live with has a high temperature, a new, continuous  cough, or a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste, or if you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.

 Those aged 70 and over are advised to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside their household, and if they do go out, they should be careful to maintain distance from others. Those who are shielding are currently advised not to attend places of worship until 1st August.

The services will be recorded and loaded on to our YouTube channel later in the day.  We hope to be able to do live streaming when we have an internet connection to the church.
