At St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Worth, we are committed to the safety of our congregation and all visitors. We will implement all aspects of the Government’s and the Church of England’s guidance.

A full risk assessment has been carried out and there will be some necessary changes as follows:

Entrance for the services will be via the main West Door.

Exit will be via the North Door.

There will be a table in the nave with hand sanitiser, advisory posters and QR code

Orders of Service in their plastic covers will be available at this table.

All Orders of Service are to be left on the pews at the end of each service.

They will be removed, cleaned and quarantined for at least 72 hours.

The wearing of a face mask is optional

Congregational singing is now able to resume

The Order of Service will be unchanged.

Readings will be delivered from the area at the front of the chancel, between the pulpit and lectern.

The Peace will be offered from pews with a bow and joined hands rather than a handshake.

Communion will be prepared in the usual way at the altar, and wafers will be offered by the celebrant in the area at the front of the chancel. Wine will not be shared.

Worshippers will socially distance as they walk to receive Communion and follow a one-way system via the Lady Chapel and aisle on the south side of the church to return to their seats.

There will not be a formal collection of monies at any time during the service.

Donations can be made on a collection plate which will be made available as the congregation exit via the North Door at the end of the service.
