St Peter’s opens again for public worship

Services in church on Sundays and Wednesdays at 10 am.

Sundays 10 am Common Worship Holy Communion.
Wednesdays 10 am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion.

Booking system:

A new booking system is in place for our Sunday services because we can only accommodate about 60 to 65 people in church as a result of social distancing rules. You can only book two weeks at a time because block bookings would be unfair. To book a seat/s please email: churchbookings20@gmail.com

The Chester Diocese guidelines include the need to wear a mask in church which is in the category of enclosed spaces. Please bring your own mask.

Online Services continue on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Please note: online services have reverted to the usual time of 10 am. Visit http://www.facebook.com/stpetershale

Private Prayer in church Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10:00am to 4:00pm; Wednesday 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Some directions for accessing church:

When you arrive there is one entrance door, on the Murieston Road side of church. The Harrop Road side is for exiting only.

Sanitise your hands when you enter.

You will receive an Order of Service. We will use this for five weeks and would like you to take your copy home and bring it with you when you return for another service.

You will have been given a seat number when you book, and sidespeople will guide you to your seats. Please go straight to your seat and stay at the usual 2 metres social distancing.

Please be in your seats by 9:50 am.

At the end of the service please leave straight away and have a natter outside where it is much safer. Hopefully the weather will be kind. St Peter’s House will not be open for coffee.

Notes on Communion

The Wardens will direct you when to come to the front.

You will receive bread only and then move to the nearest side aisle to return to your seat.

If you do not wish to take Communion you may still come forward for a blessing. For a blessing cross your hands across your chest.

Collection

A collection plate will be available at the front on either side should you wish to give.

Do this immediately after receiving Communion.

This all sounds rather bossy but we really do have your best interests at heart and want to follow the guidelines.

Let’s stay safe.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

With every blessing,

Kaz
