Welcome to St Cuthberts Ormesby
Always know you will be very welcome and we hope that you find us open and friendly people who can provide you with relevance and meaning in your daily life. There has been a church here for over a 1000 years and we want St Cuthbert’s Church to be here for all future generations.
Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
With the second Lockdown ending on 2nd December, services will restart with the Sunday Holy Communion Service at 10am on 6th December 2020. Until then the government has published the full regulations (PDF) for England’s second national lockdown, which began on Thursday 5th November 2020. As per the government guidelines the church will be closed for services, except funeral services. We will be opening the church for private prayer; Sunday's 11:30am to 12:30pm and Wednesday's 10am to 11am.
The leaders of the UK faith communities have written to the government protesting the closutre of places of worship under the second national lockdown. It can be read here (PDF).
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.
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.
