Worship at Town Church during the Pandemic

Last Updated 6th November 2021

In response to the advice issued by the Civil Contingencies Authority on Thursday 21st October 2021 and further guidance received from the Dean of Guernsey, we will amend our procedures with immediate effect. 

All those attending worship at the Town Church are asked to:

  • Carry out Lateral flow tests at least twice a week and before coming to the church and to not attend Church unless a negative result has been obtained. 

  • Sanitise hands on arrival at the church. 

  • Wear a face covering to attend worship at the church. (We will have a small number of face coverings available, however, we please ask that you bring your own)

We recognise that there are some people who are not able to wear facemasks,      

if this is you please don't worry, you are still very welcome to join us. (we ask others to please respect those who are unable to wear facemasks for whatever reason)

We will endeavour to ensure that members of the congregation are kept as well spaced as possible and we will increase the ventilation in the church. For this reason you may wish to wrap up a little warmer.

Please respect the space around others and if necessary move to a less congested area. 

Singing is still permitted (although everyone, with the exception of the choir will be required to keep their face coverings on when singing.)

The physical sharing of the peace is not permitted and we will encourage you to offer a gesture to those around you as a sign of peace. 

We will continue to offer Communion in one kind - (bread only)

Refreshments will be served after our Sunday 11 am service and we encourage you to spread out across the church rather than congregating in the south aisle. (We will open the west doors during coffee time to ensure increased ventilation)

Please do not attend the Town Church if you are experiencing any COVID symptoms (however mild)

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to worshipping with you.
