August

  • Congregational singing is back!! We're allowed to sing again during Sunday services, but we're encouraging everyone to still wear a face covering for the time being.
  • We encourage those attending in-person worship services to wear a face coverings for the time-being, especially while moving around the building or while singing. (However, they are not mandatory, so those who wish to not wear them are still permitted to join in person.)
  • We're continuing to encourage physical distancing outside members of our household. 
  • We continue to share the Peace without physical contact outside your household - using British Sign Language, peace emojis online, or another appropriate sign of peace 
  • Our staff will continue to work remotely where possible, only working on site where necessary

September 

  • SJH Cafe returns after the morning service - with the cafe team serving refreshments from behind the counter.

General

  • We will assess numbers and capacity on an ongoing basis. We will watch turnout at events, and adjust capacity accordingly.

  • Some events will still require sign-ups for capacity management - such as some groups and activities.
  • We will distribute Holy Communion by intinction for the foreseeable future
