Sunday Worship in church - Covid Information

Worship in Church - COVID guidance and practices at St Andrews

From Sunday 25th July 2021

  • There will be no need to book for a service
  • The seats will be back in rows with a central aisle but there will be a slightly bigger gap between each row.  However, we are asking everyone to leave at least one seat space between each household group.
  • We are asking everyone to continue to wear a mask and to sanitise their hands when they arrive.
  • During the Peace we will ask people to remain where they are and give everyone a sign of peace by waving and smiling for example.
  • The congregation will continue to receive only the bread during Communion. 
  • The priest will stand on the step of the nave to give the congregation the bread.  People will receive Communion or a blessing by forming a single line down the central aisle and once they have received the bread, they will return to their seats in a one way system along the side aisles. 
  • The sides-persons will guide people to ensure that we are well spaced apart.Before people receive the bread, they will be given hand sanitiser.
  • If you wish to be seated in a “video free zone” please let the sides-persons know when you arrive.
