As more folk are joining us for gathered worship, the printed copies of PewNews will be available at the Sunday services and then delivered during the week to those who have requested them. We hope this will save time, effort, and expenditure. Please do let us know if you no longer require a posted/delivered copy.
|With Step 4 of the Government Roadmap has come a relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.|
Bishop Nick and his colleagues have written a letter to the churches of the Diocese which can be viewed here.
In the letter, he encourages us to look to the needs of our neighbours and to take a cautious approach to re-opening
Our approach here in Lower Wensleydale for the moment is
Masks are encouraged when moving around and when the building is crowded.
Spacing out by using alternate pews is a simple way to help others.
The Peace will continue to be shared from where we stand.
Communion also continues in the same format as we have used during the restrictions with the Priest bringing the consecrated wafers to the congregation.
Hospitality at the end of services we hope to be able to reintroduce this during September.
Test & Trace continues in line with best practice advice.
|Our Church buildings will be open for private prayer during daylight hours.|
(St Andrew’s Finghall by appointment and on Thursdays 14:00-16:00)
|When you come|

We warmly encourage all those attending this Church, especially when the building is crowded, to continue to use face coverings; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.

of him who gave his life for us all, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
