To keep everyone safe, please note the following information before attending a service in our Parish Church:
- There’s no need to pre-book to attend our services—just turn up!
- To keep everyone safe, there is a cleaning regime in place between our Sunday services, and we have a one-way system in place when you’re moving around the building.
- Loos are available as normal.
- We ask everyone – except children under the age of 11 or those who are exempt for other reasons – to wear a face covering inside our buildings.
- In order to prevent the transmission of infection, Holy Communion is received in one kind only during the pandemic – that is, taking the Consecrated Bread only, placed into the hand. The Church of England teaches that we receive the Sacrament in its fullness when receiving in one kind.
- We ask everyone to maintain physical distancing guidelines in accordance with the “1-metre-plus” approach. This means that you can be 1 metre away from others outside your family group or support bubble if you are wearing a face covering. Otherwise, we ask you to maintain a distance of 2 metres from others outside your family group or support bubble. Please find seats in church in accordance with this rule.
We display official the official NHS Test and Trace QR Code so that those with the app can scan in.
Unless everyone in your party uses the NHS Test and Trace QR Code, we shall ask your party to provide a name and contact number. We keep this temporary record of visitors to our church for 21 days so that we can assist with NHS Test and Trace requests for data (which is needed for contact tracing and the investigation of local COVID19 outbreaks).
When collecting the names and contact details of people attending our church, we ask for their consent. Giving contact details is optional and is not a condition of attending church.
- Our services are shorter than normal in order to protect everyone.
- If you’d like to know more about the arrangements we have in place to keep everyone safe, please don’t hesitate to contact us – office(at)oxtonstsaviour.co.uk
