++ Face Coverings 'Strongly Advised in public Worship++
On Friday 24th July the Church of England changed its advice about face coverings. It now 'strongly advises' these are worn in church. There are some exceptions to this, which are the similar to those for going shopping. Face coverings are being suggested in addition to physical distancing and hand washing, rather than replacing them. Although not mandatory we hope most worshippers will follow the church's advice to help keep everyone as healthy as possible.
