The Christingle services are proceeding as planned. No further tickets will be issued as we have reached safe numbers. Visitors are required to wear face coverings unless medically exempt. Please respect the directions of the stewards who will seat you in an appropriate pew based on your family group size. There will be an opportunity to make a donation on the way in/way out for the work of the Childrens’ Society. It is hoped the contactless card reader will be in operation as well. Thank you for your co-operation in these matters and we hope you have a very happy time, despite the circumstances around us.
