Church services during July and August 2020

Published: 11 July 2020

Dear friends

We are delighted to be able to return physically to services in church, and especially to the Eucharist, which is at the heart of our worship and identity. We will be having a communion service at 3 pm on the following Sunday afternoons during July and August:

  • 12th July
  • 19th July
  • 2nd August
  • 9th August
  • 16th August
  • 23rd August

and we will be having a communion service at 10 am on the following Wednesday mornings during July and August

  • 29th July
  • 5th August
  • 12th August
  • 19th August

There will be an outdoor reflective service at 9 am in the churchyard (weather permitting) every Sunday from this Sunday onwards (12th July) during July and August. If you’re able to, please bring your own chair or rug to this service - capacity 20 people.

Worship will also continue on Zoom at 10.30 am each Sunday - please email vicky.camber@sheffield.anglican.org for joining instructions

All the above services will last around 30 minutes.

Things are looking very different in church, so if you are planning to come, it might be helpful if you were to familiarise yourself with the measures we are putting in place:

Before you arrive:

We can accommodate a maximum of 15 people at a service, so please consider which communion service in the week you might attend. If we reach capacity, we will have to ask people to come back to a different service.

We ask you to consider your own risk of attending an indoor gathering. While we will be taking a number of steps to keep you safe, we cannot make this risk-free.

We ask you not to attend the service if you:

  • have any symptoms of COVID-19
  • are self-isolating
  • are shielding or a member of your household is shielding

You may want to bring your own hand sanitiser.

You are welcome to wear a mask/face covering. Please remember that face coverings protect others from your germs - they are not a replacement for good social distancing and hand hygiene.

When you arrive:

Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the service is due to start. Stay a safe 2 metre distance from others if you arrive at the same time.

At the door, you will be asked for your name and telephone number. These will be kept for 3 weeks after the service and given to Track & Trace if someone from the service later tests positive for coronavirus. They won’t be used for any other reason and, if they are not needed for this purpose, they will be securely disposed of after 3 weeks.

The welcomer will let people into the church in households/bubbles. You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival, then go immediately to the seat you are directed to inside. The next household/bubble can then be let in.

Every third pew is marked out. Please go straight to a seat (sitting next to the wall) and remain there for the duration of the service.

The door in the chancel will be open to allow some ventilation so you may notice it is a little cooler than you expect.

During the service:

An order of service will be in your pew - please take this home with you for disposal after the service.

Due to the risk of aerosol/droplet spread there will be no singing during the service.

We ask that when you are saying the responses that you speak quietly and prayerfully - again to reduce risk of droplet spread.

When we share the peace, we cannot move from our places - we will simply wave, smile kindly and make eye contact with those around us - only speak to the person you have come with.

During distribution of communion, only bread will be distributed. The priest will wear a visor/mask and sanitise her hands before distribution. You might want to use your hand sanitiser (if you have brought some) before receiving communion. Communion will be given at the chancel step. Please come out to receive communion a pew at a time, and wait until one pew has sat back down before you come up to receive. The priest will say the words of distribution once only before distribution.

If you do not want to receive communion for any reason, that is absolutely fine - either stay in your seat, or come up to the step and indicate that you would like a blessing (no touching)

At the end of the service:

After the priest has left, the welcomer will ask people to leave a row at a time (from the back). Please wait for the welcomer to ask you to leave.

Please take any orders of service home with you.

Please do not stop to chat while leaving the building. Once out of the building you are welcome to talk in small groups of not more than 6 in the churchyard. Please do not block other people’s exit from the building. Please remember to stay 2 m apart from people in other households.

If you test positive for coronavirus up to three weeks after the service, please let us know.

It seems like there is a lot to take in. However, we want to make you feel as welcome as possible, and we hope you will feel able to join us soon. It will just take some getting used to. It may also be a little overwhelming at first. The service will not be long, and the liturgy will be simple. Above all, we hope it will be a physical space where we can encounter God together.

God bless.
