The church will be open from 11-2 and 4-6 for private prayer with a Stations of the Cross led by Ann Milner being projected every hour. You just need to use the NHS app and the QR code or sign your name and number for track and trace purposes. Sit where you like in the church and place an X where you sit so no-one else will sit in that place. We will be cleaning the church before the 3pm service.
The information we require from you when you book is;
• your name

• the services you would like to attend.
We will do our best to give you your choices.

The church is being retaped to ensure we are still socially distanced by 1m+ which will increase our capacity. However we will still have to separate households which means that we have a capacity of 32 single spaces and 18 half pews for 2 or more for each service.
