Precautions relating to Coronavirus

We are sure everyone is aware that Coronavirus and COVID-19 is very much in the news. Rest assured that St John's has acted promptly in following the Church of England and the Diocese's guidelines for hygiene. This does mean some changes to how things are done at St John's. These are:

  • Communion will be offered in one kind only to all communicants i.e. the consecrated bread/wafer/host, with the priest alone taking the wine

  • suspend handshaking or other direct physical contact during the sharing of the peace;

  • hand sanitiser is available at the table near the entrance to church at the bottom of the staircase:

  • paper hand towels are to be used for drying hands and washing up. Paper towels will be disposed into the new pedal bins
  • The churchwardens
