Church of St Mary the Virgin, Wrawby
The Church Re-Opens - PLEASE READ

Update: there will be a Service at St Mary's at 11 am on Sunday 20th December.

The PCC have been working on a risk assessment to enable the church to be reopened for public worship. There will be some different procedures to allow worship to take place: Any one who is showing signs of Covid 19 or feeling unwell should not come to church. Please wear a face mask in Church unless you are in exempt group.

On entry to the church hand sanitiser should be used and also on leaving the church. Social distancing should be observed at 2m apart unless from the same household. Please try and stagger arrival and departure.

A steward will show you to a vacant pew and advise you of the best way to get there. In order to social distance a lot of the pews have been taped off, do not use these. A maximum number of 20 in the church, only 1 person in the short pews unless from the same household and no more than 2 in the long pews keeping distance.

The government has decreed that singing is not permitted in the church. Refreshments likewise are not allowed. The use of the churches books are also restricted, if you wish to use bibles please bring your own. A service sheet may be provided in the pew please take this home after the service.

Names and contact details will be taken and held temporarily for 21 days for the purposes of NHS track and trace.

Apologies for the changes but these are in place to try and restrict the spread of the virus and to try and keep every- one safe. Anyone shielding and in the vulnerable category should consider carefully whether to attend or not, this has to be your decision.

Because of difficulties obtaining clergy cover at the moment the proposal is to hold a service of morning prayer on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
