ST. PHILIP’S - Sunday services at the Centre will resume at 8.15am on Sunday September 6th. 
 

Safety measures - The Lounge Bar area will be used for the service with no one else using this area and there will be a ‘dedicated’ loo for the sole use of worshipers.

Covid 19 - Corona Virus - Public Worship to restart from Sunday 12 July 2020

Following government guidance we are very pleased to announce that Sunday worship will be restarting from 12th July although we will all need to embrace the new ways in order to keep everyone safe including a shorter simpler service.

 

The Standing Committee have prepared a risk assessment to help to ensure your safety,  this is available via the link below. 

 

Services will take place each Sunday  

 

Times will be :-

08.15 St Philips

09.30am St Mary's Church

11.00 am St Thomas & St John

 

As a result of the risk assessment and using the guidance provided by the Church of England we will all need to follow these new instructions:   

  • ​Singing is not allowed and for the first few services there will not be any additional music.  
  • ​Our Team Vicar Elizabeth Binns will do the readings and prayers (you can send in intercession request to Elizabeth by email, phone or text).
  • There will not be a service books or news sheet.
  • Communion will be received by the congregation in bread alone. Elizabeth will bring communion to your pew as this reduces movement and risk. 
  • When you arrive at church please follow the instructions given by members of the Standing Committees or sidespeople on duty.   Please do not gather to chat or wait for friends
  • You will be directed to a seat and you must remain there for the service, standing only to receive communion.  Please do not touch or move the signage.
  • The number of people who can attend a service will be limited to approximately 37 at St. Mary and 54 at STSJ.   People will only be able  to sit in the places indicated.  People who share the same household may sit together and a limited number of family pews have been identified. 
  • Attendance  for weddings, baptisms and funerals is limited to 30 people.
  • Limited numbers may mean that some people arrive at church to find that there is not a seat for them.  (A booking system may need to be introduced)
  • The use of face coverings is a matter of individual choice but use of hand sanitiser is mandatory; this will be provided but it is safer if you can bring your own for use in church.
  • Please try and avoid using the toilet; if you do so you will need to follow a cleaning regime.
  • There will be no kitchen facilities or social activities
  • There will be no Sunday School.  Children are welcome but must be supervised at  all times.
  • Porch parcels will not be distributed.    People in need can contact the Council’s Community Hubs 0161 253 5353
  • A register of attendees will be taken at every service to facilitate ‘contact tracing’ if anyone is taken ill.
  • The Church of England has stated that anyone who shows any symptoms or is an at-risk group should not attend church.  Please consider this carefully.  We all have a  personal and collective responsibility as members of the church, PCC members and officers to follow this guidance.
