Coronavirus (COVID-19) – What we are doing

[Last updated: Wednesday 1st March 2022]

We are being Guided by The Church of England which is examining the latest advice from Government and Public Health England and we will update our website as is necessary.


Face Coverings

We hope you will wish to respect our continuing efforts to keep all who visit us safe.     Whilst  there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering in any setting,  the Guidance is that  face coverings are worn in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet. 

St Mary’s is pleased to welcome you to our regular worship on Sundays. We hope you will wish to respect our continuing efforts to keep all who visit us safe and will wear a face covering whilst entering and leaving the Church when requested to do so.

When preparing our building for re-opening we  undertook risk assessments in accordance with Guidance issued to us by The Church of England.  We will continue to review and assess for so long as the pandemic continues. Copies of the relevant documents are available here.  We are required to reconsider our assessments after each use of the building and therefore it may be that the assessment will change.   Whilst we are no longer required to keep records of visitors to assist NHS Trace and Track it will remain possible to register your attendance using the NHS Covid-19 App. The relevant Data Protection COVID-19 Privacy Notice is also available through the link.
