We had a good experience of worship in church last Sunday morning. It was so good to be back in the building once again, worshipping together. The previous service was just before Mothering Sunday.

Talking with the congregation afterward, we were hoping to be able to invite you to take your mask off at the start of future services, depending on numbers present. On Sunday, we were kept well above 1m distance from each other. However, in view of the news about masks in shops which comes into force on Friday, it is almost certain that masks are here to stay, even if we were to achieve 2m at every service.

I will bring you the up to date guidance as it arrives from the Archdeacon, but we probably ought to get used to the idea.
