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.

Sunday 10th Jan 2021

Update: Because we are all being asked to remain at home to help reduce the spread of the virus and to relieve the strain on the NHS we have decided that we will not be holding any services at St Cuthberts for the rest of the month. The Archdeacon of Cleveland is due to celebrate Holy Communion on Sunday 31st January 2021 at 10am. All being well we will be able to go ahead with this service and hopefully start regular services again in February. Watch this space.

The New Year and we are in Tier 4 and national lockdown. There will be no Wednesday Communion service and we will not be opening the church for individual prayer on Wednesday's from 10am to 11am for the time being. We hope to restart this for Lent.

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.

St Cuthbert, Ormesby will be holding a Patronal Festival over the weekend of 8th to 10th June 2018. All are welcome, particularly Teddy Bears.

Unfortunately the Church Tower is unsuitable for mounting a bungee rope so we will have a zip wire Teddy Bear Death Slide instead.

St Cuthberts Ormesby PCC and congregation would like to thank the following in proving financial support for roof repairs and recovering the roof in Stainless Steel. It should keep us water tight for at least another generation.
