St Matt’s Live and Online

After nearly 2 years of Covid, it feels like we are finally moving forward!
However, we are aware that everyone is moving forward at different speeds, so our main 10am services will stay online as well as in church.

As of 27th January 2022, the government has removed Plan B restrictions in England.
This means that when you come into church this Sunday, this is what you can now expect:

  • there is now no requirement to wear face masks at all in the church building, although please do wear one if you would like to. We will leave this to individual choice
  • we will still be encouraging people to chat outside with coffee at the end of the service, as this is the safest option
  • we will still ask you to sanitise your hands when you enter the building
  • the church building is naturally well ventilated, and we will open doors to help with this as the weather permits
  • the side aisle (on the right as you enter the church) will be more spaced out than the main body of the church, so please do use this if you would like a bit more space. You can also take a card to put on the chairs next to you, asking people to leave some space if this helps
  • if someone in your house has Covid, we would ask you not to come into church until they are out of isolation

If you would rather not come into church, or are unable to, you can join us at 10am every Sunday on our Facebook page (St. Matt’s Facebook) or on our You Tube channel (St. Matt’s You Tube).

If you missed this week’s service and would like to watch it now, here it is…
