Throughout the pandemic we’ve done all we can to ensure St Paul’s Church has been a safe place to meet.

While the government has eased restrictions and it is now personal choice to wear a face mask, we owe it to each other to keep St Paul’s as a Covid-safe place.

We know many people are still cautious and on that basis we have decided, for the time being, to continue with the wearing of facemasks when we meet in St Paul’s.

We appreciate this will be disappointing for some, but we believe that by doing this we can demonstrate the love, care and respect we are called to show each other.

We’re following government advice, so Hands, Face, Space still applies. While these arrangements continue for now, we will keep them under review in light of changing guidance and COVI|D-19 levels and will ease restrictions as early as we can – hopefully as soon as August.

We understand that there may be some people who cannot wear a facemask or visor for medical reasons. If that’s the case, please wear a lanyard or badge explaining this so we understand your situation.

We’re finalising arrangements for our summer services and will send out details soon.

As ever, if you have any concerns, please speak to one of the church leaders.

The good news is that you can now sing behind your facemasks (although we suspect there has been some sneaky singing recently!) so we’re looking forward to lifting the roof this coming Sunday morning!
