Please read and observe these rules carefully, they are here for your protection and the protection of others.
Individual Private Prayer
The Church will be open for individual private prayer from Wednesdays to Saturdays 10am to 4pm. For Covid-19 health and safety reasons, after a Sunday Service the church will be closed until the following Wednesday. See the Calendar on this website for dates & times of Services.
The church is available to all, but DO NOT ENTER if you, or a member of your household, are suffering from any Covid-19 related symptoms, or has experienced symptoms within the last 7 days.
Please observe social distancing at all times.
You are STRONGLY urged to wear a face mask. Face masks and gloves are not mandatory but are strongly recommended.
Hand gel is provided at the door and MUST BE USED before entering AND leaving the Church.
There are no water or toilet facilities available.
Prayer positions are restricted to the front centre nave pews and the choir stalls only; they are clearly marked.
Available pews are clearly marked. Family groups may occupy the whole pew.
No other part of the church is available and must not be entered.
Please observe the one-way system, clearly marked on the floor. Do not take shortcuts or reverse direction.
Do not touch any object, surface, door handles or furniture except those in the immediate vicinity of your prayer position. This will prevent unnecessary cleaning.
There are reversible cards at each designated 'prayer zone' indicating whether or not that position is available. Please turn these over when you leave.
A hymn book is available in the pew, although there will be no singing. Please leave it in position on leaving.
If you, or any member of your household, develop any symptoms of Covid-19 within 7 days of visiting the Church, you MUST inform the Rector (01458 251375) IMMEDIATELY! Appropriate 'trace and test' action will then be taken.
Despite the necessary procedures we hope you value your time in St. Andrew's.
