Covid-19 guidance

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.

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.

There will be no Wednesday Communion service for the time being.

Holy Week and Easter in 2020

With Church buildings closed its easy to forget that the Church is still active when we cannot meet in St Cuthbert’s. As has been said by Revd. Jen, on several occasions, the Church is more than the building we meet for Weekday or Sunday Services.

We are the Church, and all can continue to support our Church Wardens and Deacon Janet from our homes during the Vacancy. Through prayer; supporting food banks (also see below); financially, by putting aside the money you generously donate or setting up a Standing Order; providing material for the weekly Bulletin, please email that to Carol. Worship in the home may take the form of a shared meal or agape. See the end of this bulletin from York, Holy Communion during the time of Anti-Virus Restrictions (PDF).

The Church of England has a page dedicated to ways we can all participate to celebrating Easter Week; through reflection, Social Media, joining a live-streamed event, or by an act of Spiritual Communion.
