As the government continue to slowly remove lockdown restrictions you may be aware, following on from the recent change to allow clergy to livestream services from church buildings once again, at the weekend it was announced that from the 15th June access to buildings for individuals for private prayer will also be permitted. With this in mind we are beginning to make preparations to open St Paul’s, but due to its geographical location there are no plans at present for St Peter’s, Camerton.

Obviously we need to ensure the safety of those wishing to enter the building for private prayer or simply times of quiet reflection and so there will be some restrictions in place and social distance guidance must be followed at all times.

There will be a hand sanitizing unit at the entrance and you will be asked to use this on both entering and leaving the building

Those visiting the church for private prayer will be asked to place a notice on the pew they have used to assist with cleaning. These notices will be available to collect on entry to the building.

If there is more than one person in the building it is extremely important that social distancing guidelines (2m apart unless from the same household) are adhered to at all times.
.
At the end of each period of time made available a thorough clean will take place.

There will be notices and signage inside the building to assist with adhering to the guidelines.

Please do not use any of the books that are within the building.

Although this is only a small step it is good news as we begin to look forward to being able to meet for worship again in our churches.

Times of opening, with effect from Thursday 18th June will be as follows

Sunday: 10.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
Thursday: 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
