Restrictions due to Coronavirus

We are again in Lockdown and whilst we are permitted to worship in Church we have to consider if it is safe to do so. It has been decided to continue to conduct services in Church for the time being and arrangements for Sunday are below. In order to minimise risks, we are asking you not to converse with people inside the Minchinhampton building. The size and acoustics of the space mean that it is practically impossible to converse with someone and maintain 2 meters distancing, even without wearing masks. So, if you are coming to worship on Sunday, please will you:

On arrival put on your mask, sanitise your hands, and go straight to your seat without talking to anyone. You may need to ask a question, or deliver an instruction, but we are asking you not to have conversations. If you do need to talk, please do so clearly, and move on as soon as possible.
When seated, please do not move your seat closer to someone else, or lean towards someone else!
At the end of the service, please stay in your seat until the verger has directed you to leave (row-by-row). On leaving the church, please move directly outside the building without conversing.

I am sorry if this sounds like you are being treated like school children, but as worship is practically the only thing you are allowed to leave the house for, we need to make sure we are as safe as is possible!

LIFE prayer

God of hope and transformation,
who in our Lord Jesus Christ offers the gift of life in all its fullness,
send your Holy Spirit and grant us
joy in our following and vision in our leadership.
May we be rich in imagination,
confident in faith,
and courageous in our engagement
with the people and places of this diocese.
As we share your life with the world,
keep us rooted and grounded in love
as we bear witness to your glory
and pray for your Kingdom to come.
Amen.
