COVID-19 and attending church. As the Covid cases in Cheshire East are on the increase, let us remind ourselves of the basics of attending church to keep us all safe.
- Wear a face covering (unless you have an exemption)
- Sanitise your hands on the way in and the way out
- Maintain a 2m Social Distancing whilst in church
- Do not sit close to those not in your household/bubble, we have the seating arranged for you to do this, please follow the signage
- Remain in your pew once you arrive and do not walk about the church and talk to others
- Refrain from singing or loud conversations
By keeping to these simple practices we show regard for others and help keep the church a safe place to be. Thank you. Revd Mike.
