Coronavirus - Vicar's Newsletter for 5th July

Dear all,
 
Contained in this email is the link for our Sunday Benefice service tomorrow and the latest news for the Hertford Benefice.
 
REOPENING OF CHURCHES FOR WORSHIP
Detailed guidance including risk assessment measures on the opening of the churches for public worship has been produced. There is no pressure for churches to open immediately. Reopening at this stage is permissive, not prescriptive. Please find below the plans for each of the churches in the benefice. Decisions have been made by agreement between churchwardens and me.
 
When you do eventually attend your church for worship, we would ask that you kindly follow all the guidance and directions given. This may include not being able to sit in your favourite place due to social distancing of 2m. If you are in the 'at risk' category for Covid 19 or the 'critically at risk' category you are advised to stay at home as much as possible.
 
During this time of transition and preparation online worship will continue to be made available on Sundays via the All Saints Hunmanby website. We will endeavour to continue some form of online worship presence even when the churches are back to regular weekly worship.
