Coronavirus Update March 2022. The government are changing the covid restrictions.
We as a Church ask people to follow the following guidance:
That when moving about before and after services people wear masks.
That when seated people may remove their mask if they wish but should wear a mask when singing.
If people wish to stand to sing hymns they may do so – providing they are wearing a mask.
As much as possible people should sit socially distanced from others – for a large funeral or baptism this might not be possible but for usual Sunday services it is.
Hand sanitizer should remain available, and people should use it.
As the requirement to self-isolate will not apply from April.
keep people safe, wear a mask social distance and use hand sanitizer if you can.

Praying for all around the world Remember that the Methodist Church is wider than Britain
We are learning from all around the world who are dealing with a difficult and uncertain situation
and we would ask that you hold them in prayer
God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.
We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.
Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.
