We have been advised by the Canterbury Diocese that the rule of 6 does not apply to places of worship as worship is not classed as a social gathering. The increase in Covid cases is extremely concerning. Please be assured that we are following all current guidance and taking all necessary measures to keep people safe, including wearing face masks in church, providing and using hand sanitiser, keeping a church register of attendees and limiting the number of people attending to ensure social distancing can be adhered to.
We continue to pray for everyone who is affected - those who are ill, or whose families are ill, those who are anxious or struggling with cancelled plans and isolation. We give grateful thanks to God for the NHS and all those who are working tirelessly to keep us safe.
'The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.'
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
