Opening our Churches

Great news!  Our churches can open their doors for Private Prayer!

Church of England and government guidelines allow that churches can open for ‘individual private prayer’.  Each PCC has met to consider whether and when the parish church should open.

To keep everyone safe, the following steps have been taken to ensure minimal risk:

  • please check in using the QR code or sign in sheet (in case track & trace needs to be used)
  • wear a face mask & keep social distance if others are in the church
  • hand sanitiser will be provided at entrance to the church
  • areas that can be accessed and used within the church will be limited
  • high standards of hygiene will be maintained, with regular cleaning & wipe down of surfaces

Norton Church                     Open daily from 10 am – 4 pm
