Churches Reopening for Private Prayer

From 24th June for St Julian’s and St Giles’, 25th June for St Nicolas, we will be reopening our churches for individual private prayer.
We have had to take extra precautions to make our buildings as safe as we possibly can and we need your help to keep them safe. You will notice that much of all three churches will be cordoned off and access will be limited to certain parts of the building. There are also a few rules we would ask you to follow when entering any of our buildings:

Each church has specific regulations to make them as safe as possible. Please make sure you check the signage as you come in. If you need any further reassurance or have any questions regarding coming to church for private prayer please speak to Fr James or one of the volunteers who will be on site during opening hours.
You will also be able to find our risk assessments on our websites. (See below for St Nicolas' Risk Assessment)
I know that this might still feel very different to how we were able to use our churches before the virus emerged. The restrictions in place will hopefully mean that we will be able to enter our churches reassured that it is safe to do so while creating a prayerful space to return to. It is one more little step towards normality and I am very much looking forward to meeting you at church again.

Opening times:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
