Important Information regarding the Carols by Candlelight Service at St Leonard’s on Christmas Eve at 6pm

We are really looking forward to welcoming people to our Carols by Candlelight service in person this on Christmas Eve at St Leonard’s as this is always one of the highlights in our church calendar.

However our first priority is to make sure people are as safe as possible, especially in view of the rapidly increasing number of cases triggered by the new Omicron variant of Covid-19.

It is now a legal requirement that everyone aged 11 and over wears a face mask at all times over their nose and mouth while in the church building, unless they have a medical exemption.

Although it is not a legal requirement we also request that everyone attending does a lateral flow test earlier in the day.

Hand sanitiser will be available as usual for people to use on entry and exit and the building will be well ventilated, so please dress accordingly.

The service will also be streamed via our Facebook Page for those unable to attend in person.

We do hope that you can join us to worship God together at this very special service.

Covid-19 Update - December 2021

Following the recent announcements from the Prime Minister, we would advise as follows, in response to the huge increase in the number of infections, driven by the new Omicron variant.

1. Although social distancing is no longer a legal requirement, we still need to "space ourselves out" as much as possible.

2. It is once more a legal requirement that all those aged 11 and over attending events in either church (unless they have a medical exemption) must wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times while in the building.

3. Congregational singing has been reintroduced but masks should be worn at all times

4. Although it is not a legal requirement we are asking all those attending services, to conduct a Lateral Flow Test just before coming to church.

5. Everybody should use the Hand Sanitiser provided on entry into and exit from the building.

6. Everybody with a Smartphone should continue to "check-in" to the venue using the NHS Covid-19 App and QR codes on display, and we will continue to collect names of those attending services, and phone numbers for any visitors

7. We will continue to ensure that doors are left open during services to maintain good ventilation.

8. Regarding refreshments, this has been reintroduced after the Sunday morning services at St Leonard's, but following strict guidelines, including table service only rather than people congregating at a counter.  Although it is legal for face masks to be removed while eating or drinking, appropriate social distancing in these circumstances becomes even more important.   The serving of refreshments at St Peter's has not yet recommenced.

9. We continue indefinitely with the streaming of at least one Sunday service per week, so that we are still ministering to those who still do not feel comfortable to return.

10. Holy Communion will move to a system of "Simultaneous Administration" where the person presiding dips the wafer in the wine for each communicant.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation as it develops over the coming days and weeks and follow instructions from the Government and the Church of England.

God bless
