Open for Public Worship in practice with COVID safety guidelines:
Proper use of face masks and social distancing as required
REMEMBER! SOCIAL DISTANCING REGULATIONS are still IN PLACE IF YOU ARE ATTENDING IN CHURCH SERVICES : Unless you are in the same family, you must maintain a distance of no less than 6 feet, and preferably two pews apart from people in front and behind you. This applies also to social distancing in line to receive Holy Communion, etc. Also you must wear a mask fully covering your mouth and nose during services. We do not wish to be known for promoting community spread of COVID, only to be known for spreading the Good News of our Resurrected Jesus Christ. Locally cases are still prevalent and new variants are a real concern. We want you to stay safe. In your charity to others, you keep everyone else safe.
