F.A.Q.s (Updated May 2022)
Do I need to wear a facemask?
Where can I sit?
We have retained an area of socially distanced seating for those who prefer this, otherwise you may sit where you like in our pews. We ask that you are mindful of others and leave a space between you and the next group or person along.
Will there be wine at Communion?
Communion will continue to be bread only at present. We are exploring ways to safely re-introduce wine on a Sunday during the summer term.
Facemasks are now optional, but we strongly recommend wearing a face covering while singing, at communion and while moving around church.
I'm in a vulnerable group - should I come to a service?
We encourage everyone to keep following current government or medical guidance that applies to them.
Our mid-week service on Wednesdays typically has a smaller congregation so is a great place to worship if you are concerned about being in a larger group.
What should I do if I get Covid 19 and have been to a service recently?
Should you become ill and have attended a service at St Mary's please let us know ASAP. We have set procedures to follow in the event of a known case of Covid in our building, and letting us know means we can do our part in keeping others safe.
If you have any questions please do contact us.
