Information for when attending church:
Vestry has agreed that the wearing of face masks / face coverings is optional in St Peter’s.
There will be lots of different thoughts on this, and we ask that everyone please respect the decisions made by each individual as we enter this next phase of Covid-19, especially to those who wish to continue wearing a face mask / covering and/or wish to continue being seated at a distance.
All are very welcome to our services but bearing in mind the continuing high numbers of Covid infections, we ask that anyone who has a fever or is showing any symptoms of Covid-19 or a virus please do NOT come to church until all symptoms have gone.
Not surprisingly some people will not feel comfortable about attending services in church just now. If this is the case, we completely understand and look forward to seeing you when you feel able to attend again.
