CORONAVIRUS - A MESSAGE FROM REV HUW
Dear Brother and Sisters
Thank you for your patience with reopening St Michael's Church again for worship inside our building. We are keen to open again, but only once we feel it is safe to do so.
The relevant information has now been provided from The Diocese of Manchester, and following consultation with our Bishops and PCC, we are aiming to open our Church on the 26th July at 10:15am. However, I must stress this will only take place when we have a satisfactory risk assessment and appropriate PPE in place.
The capacity of our Church building will also be greatly reduced due to social distancing, and we will not be able to sing. We will be able to listen to music though, hear readings, have sermons, and, hopefully, communion of one kind.
To limit the spread of the virus, we'll be ensuring the building is not used for at least 72 hours after a service. Therefore, we won't initially have a midweek or Sunday evening service. Hopefully, in the next few weeks, we will be able to start these up again.
Please note, if you're a regular worshipper at St Michael's and you hope to have your child enrolled at St Michael's School, we will be signing 'supplementary faith forms' from the beginning of August onwards when you attend. You will need at least one signature in August and two on each of the following months.
I am looking forward to seeing you all soon and please do stay safe.
Rev Huw Thomas
