Services @ St Nicholas in January
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ
You may have seen in the news over the last 24 hours that Essex and East London now have the worst affected areas in the country.
It is therefore with a very heavy heart that we have to inform you that after an emergency meeting of the clergy team
we have decided to follow the advise of our diocesan bishop Peter and close our church buildings with immediate effect until further notice, with the exception of funeral services.
We know this news will be upsetting for many, but our overall aim is to try and keep people as safe as possible.
Please remember that the primary guidance is for people to stay at home in Tier 4 areas.
COVID-19 Responding to Church of England advice. Closed at the moment, but the following advice will still stand when we re-open.
St Nicholas church has been prepared to comply with social distancing, pews have been cordoned off to indicate where you may be seated. To this end the maximum number at any one time is 15, a household counts as 1.
please be ready to wait to gain admittance.
Please sanitise your hands when you arrive and when you leave.
There will be a someone at the door to assist.
Please wear a facecovering, unless you are exempt.
To limit the spread of infection all books are already placed in the pews and should remain there after the service.
No singing will be permitted.
Communion will be in one kind.
Sadly we are not able to provide toilet facilities, or refreshments.
