Covid Update
The Government has updated guidance for the Safe Use of Places of Worship following the removal of Plan B restrictions. Under the new guidance, most of the previous legal restrictions have been removed.  The Methodist Church has published guidance going forward full details of which can be found HERE. In particular we would encourage people to be aware of the comfort and safety of those around them. We would request that worshipers continue to wear face coverings to reduce the risk of transmission in crowded or enclosed spaces, particularly if ventilation is poor and where you are sharing space with people you do not normally meet.
