Church Response

This is where you can find information on how church life is being affected by the Coronavirus.

It will be a long and difficult time until all restrictions are over. Whatever decisions we make—individually and collectively—will have consequences. We see your chuch's role as supporting the parish through worship, prayer, caring for the isolated and unwell, and supporting, as best we can, the healthy functioning of the community. "Social distancing", whilst entirely necessary, isn't good for us in the long-term and isn't very easy for many Christians to do! No one should take risks.
Our prayer is that we can maintain the bonds that bind us together in the love of God.
As we continue our journey we do so in the company of Jesus, who knew the pain of isolation. He went through great suffering to grant access to the joyful and very social life that God promises us all. In time we will continue to build that life in our own community as we always have, but for now we must find different ways to make that love real and vital. Let us make sure we are all praying for one another, and those who are supporting us.
With best wishes,
Deiniol, Kevin, Nigel and all the team.

We are delighted to welcome you back to church, which is now open during the day.

You are invited, if it is safe for you to do so, to spend time in church in prayer, contemplation and rest.

 

Please follow the arrows indicating the one way system in place.

Enter through the main door.

Exit through the small door.

Sanitise your hands when entering.

You can wipe down a bench before sitting and when leaving.

You can wash your hands on the way out.

Sit, pray, rest. There are many ways to be with God in this space.

In the church are resources to help you pray. Our Risk Assessment for re-opening the church is attached. 

The church is open from 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday and Noon-5pm Sunday.

We will be reviewing and updating our support for the congregation in the light of events and need.  

  1. All members of the worshipping community will be contacted by telephone initially by one of a dedicated team. The purpose of this will be to:
    • Make contact
    • Raise awareness of how the church is supporting people through online worship, prayer and other resources.
    • Assess need.
    • Assess the level of community/friendly/family support for those people who are at risk.
    • Receive prayer requests.
  2. An "At-risk" register will be made of people in need of practical support.
  3. Support for the "At-risk" will be co-ordinated in line with our Community Support plan.
  4. The Reverend Nigel Spoor is co-ordinating the pastoral response to the "At-risk" group.
  5. Fran McLean is co-ordinating the response to families with children.
  6. The Reverend Kevin Lovell is co-ordinating the worship and prayer response.
  7. In any case of need or concern or in urgency please contact the Rector.
