A New beginning: resuming Worship in church (But not back to normal!)

Services resumed at Holy Trinity in a limited capacity on Sunday 19th July and at St Columba on Sunday 30th August. There will be a limited number of spaces available each week and booking will be required on Saturdays, the day before the service. This is necessary so as to control the numbers so that we can minimize risk for all church goers and comply with the Government's directive.

Looking ahead to September, please refer to this document.

Here’s some answers to questions you might have.

Starting in a small way, Holy Trinity opened at 10am on Sunday 19th July. Services at St Columba will start on Sunday 30th August, with Holy Communion at 8.30am.

We are limited to 48 people altogether, based on 2 metre social distancing, as recommended. In the newssheet, there are details of how to book in! Sorry, but this is how it has to be.

Much will be familiar! We’ll be together but a bit apart; the shape of the service will be recognizable, with significant changes. We’ll share the peace – differently. We’ll listen to lovely music, but won’t be able to sing.

Standing, by the altar, with bread but not wine. The bread will be covered as the priest recites the Eucharistic prayer and will wear a face covering to protect everyone when sharing the Body of Christ.

Sadly no, for the time being.

Yes. Please use sanitizer supplied and respect social distancing.

They are very welcome. We’ll be relying on accompanying adults to help keep them safe. They can bring their own toys and we’ll provide some activity packs – just for them but there will be no general toys and books available.
