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. Due to the high incidence of infections both locally and nationally we are asking all users of the Church to continue to observe the regulations that were in place before 19th July 2021 for the time being.

  • Although Face coverings are no longer mandatory in places of worship, we ask you to continue to wear them. The exceptions for those exempted and for the bride and groom and those officiating at a wedding not to wear them continues.
  • On entering and exiting St Cuthbert's everyone is asked to use the hand sanitiser provided in the entrance porch.
  • Please continue to observe the Government physical (social) distancing guidelines while inside and outside the church. Remember this is 2 metres without some additional control measures like a face covering or 1 metre if wearing a face covering.
  • Government guidance no longer mandate that we record the names of attendees and visitors. But, as this is designed to help NHS Test and Trace and keep you safe, we ask that you continue to use the NHS QR code with the NHS Covid app, or enter your details in the attendance sheet. These records are kept for 21 days, to assist track-and-trace. 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.

Please maintain physical distancing at the end of the service, there is a one-way system to help you maintain physical (social) distancing.

Life Events: Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms

With the start of British Summer Time, starting Tuesday 6th April 2021, we will hold our open Marriage and Baptism Booking Sessions on Tuesday evenings. No need to book, just come along to St Cuthberts on Tuesday evenings between 6pm and 7pm.

If you cannot make a Tuesday Open Session then please use the online enquiry forms found on the Life Events pages or contact us by email or phone 07715298711. Please note that we will still need to meet you in person at one of the Tuesday Open Sessions.

  1. Although the government have removed restrictions on numbers for Life Events (Christenings, Weddings, Funerals) due to the limitations with ventilation in church you should discuss with those officiating these events on any limits that may be needed due to the continuing high levels of infection both locally and nationally.
  2. We ask, that, for the time being, everyone using the church continue to wear a face covering, unless exempted, to sanitise your hands on entering and exiting the building and observe appropriate physical (social) distancing at all times to protect yourselves and others using the church.
  3. We suggest that you continue to use the NHS QR code with the NHS Covid app, or enter your details in the attendance sheet as this aids both your own safety and the safety of others through NHS Test and Trace.

For Funerals contact a Church Warden or Deacon Janet, alternatively please email us.
