Covid-19 guidance

A warm St Cuthbert's welcome still awaits you, although no refreshments can be provided at the end of the service, and we can no longer sing hymns during the services.

We continue to work with the Government and Church of England Covid-19 guidance in making the church environment as safe as possible and to protect everyone.

  • Face coverings are mandatory in places of worship unless you have a legitimate exemptions for health, or where communication is impeded when wearing a mask, or are a bride and groom and those officiating at a wedding.
  • On entering and exiting St Cuthbert's everyone is asked to use the  hand sanitiser provided in the entrance porch.
  • Please always keep to the Government physical (social) distancing guidelines while inside and outside the church. Remember this is still 2 metres without some additional control measures like a face covering.
  • Government guidance includes a request that we record the names of attendees and visitors. Please enter your details in the attendance sheet. These records are kept for 21 days, to assist track-and-trace if required. All information is dealt with as required by GDPR and the records will be securely disposed of after 21 days. St Cuthbert's privacy policy is available here.

To maintain physical distancing at the end of the service please follow the one-way system while maintaining physical (social) distancing.
