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.

Bells to peal for fallen of WW1

To honour predecessors killed in the First World War, groups of church bell-ringers are ringing a full peal on the centenary of each of the servicemen’s deaths. Two Ormesby ringers, Gunner William Hansell and Private Frank Brown, were killed in the First World War on 28th September 1918 and 28th October 1918 respectively.

A group of bell-ringers from the Cleveland and North Yorkshire branch of the Yorkshire Association of Change Ringers are going to ring a quarter peal at 6pm on Friday 28th September and a full peal on Sunday 28th October to honour the sacrifice these men gave for their country. The quarter peal takes 45-50 minutes on the 8 bells at St Cuthbert’s and the full peal can last up to 3.5 hours as it involves over 5000 changes in the order the bells are rung.

The first peal took place in 2015, at St Mary’s, Whitby and the last will be at St Cuthbert’s, Ormesby, on 28 October 2018, in memory of Private Frank Brown, of the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, who died, aged 20, just before the Armistice.
