Holy Trinity Church, Lyne and Longcross

Worshipping God, Nurturing Faith, Serving Others

Keeping Safe in COVID 19

This guidance was produced by the House of Bishops Recovery Group and published on Tuesday 30th June


·        There is no numerical ‘cap’ on other services, but social distancing and Public Health requirements must be met. Here at Holy Trinity we have set a limit to persons attending public worship at any one time.


·        The two-metre ‘rule’ applies for public worship except in situations where closer contact cannot be avoided; extra Public Health precautions must then be taken.


·        Consideration should be given to keeping numbers below the maximum possible to further minimise risk.


·        Wearing of face-coverings is mandatory.


·        While those at extra risk and the ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ should be advised of the risks of attending public worship, a decision to do so is theirs alone.


·        Government guidance includes a request for names of attendees to be recorded and kept for 21 days to assist ‘track and trace’ if required. You will have been asked to register your attendance upon arrival. Thankyou for your cooperation with this measure


·        Singing, chanting and playing of brass or woodwind instruments other than the organ are not recommended at this time.


·        Detailed instructions suggest that services of Holy Communion can be held if specific guidance is followed. This will be in one kind only and will be brought to you during the distribution. Please remain seated at all times. The President will without words place the bread into your hands.


·        Further Government advice about use of churches and church halls for non-religious activity is expected to be issued soon.
