St Thomas’s Covid Policy : Summer 2021
St Thomas’s is taking advantage of the lifting of restrictions while ensuring safety and respecting the differing needs of members of the congregation.
There is no requirement to wear masks but some will wish to do so. We encourage people to spread out and be sensitive to others’ needs.
Seating in the side aisles is for those who wish to observe social distancing. Seating in the nave is unrestricted but please spread out.
Congregational singing is allowed.
The Peace is exchanged by gesture and not touch.
At Holy Communion, the priest will now say words at the administration.
We hope to offer refreshments on a Sunday morning soon, and to reopen the Tuesday and Saturday refreshments and bookstall in early September.
As we proceed with care, please be sensitive to the needs of others.
