St Peter's opens for private prayer!

On 7 th June, the Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick confirmed that places of worship across England will be permitted to reopen for individual prayer from Monday 15th June.
The Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, leads The House of Bishops Recovery Group, which has been set up to support the Church of England as government guidance changes through the pandemic. New guidance has been published for parishes to ensure the limited re-opening of churches can be done safely and in line with social distancing guidelines. It covers such things as: displaying notices to remind visitors of hygiene and physical distancing measures; providing hand-washing facilities; marking places where people can sit and cleaning the church regularly.
At St Peter's Church preparations are well underway with the new carpet being fitted from 15th – 17th June and a deep clean booked for 19th June. It is hoped that everything should be ready for opening for private prayer on Monday 22nd June. The opening times will be 12:00 – 2:00 pm Monday-Saturday.
