Covid-19 Church Services

Covid-19 & Church Services

Now that restrictions have been lifted, face coverings and social distancing are a matter of personal choice, however, please respect those who wish to continue with such.

All services in church here at Colbury are at 9.30am, and are Morning Praise except the first Sunday of the month ( 3rd  July) which  will  be a Holy Communion Service.  All are followed by tea and coffee in the church rooms.

The advice offered by the Church of England and scientists is that the risk of contagion from using a silver chalice with alcohol is extrememly low and much safer than dipping the wafer into the chalice with your fingers.

We have agreed to reintroduce the common chalice for those who wish. If you do not wish to drink from the chalice please leave the altar rail immediately after receiving the wafer, do not attempt to dip your wafer into the chalice.

Zoom  Morning Praise Services will continue each week at 11am
