Church re-0pens for private prayer
St Giles church will be open for private payer from 10am to 11am on Wednesday and Sunday each week, starting Wednesday 17 June.
If you would like to come to church to pray during these times please follow these guidelines:
Enter and leave the building by the main (tower) entrance. Please keep 2m apart as you enter church.
Please use the alcohol gel provided on entering and leaving the church.
Collect a ‘sit mat’ to sit on in the pew and leave it there when you leave. (This is so we know where people have sat so the place can be avoided by those who follow and so we can clean the church effectively afterwards).
Walk into the church down the central aisle to find a pew.
Make sure you sit at least 2 metres from anyone else (unless from your household) and keep two pews apart.
Leave the church by walking to the front of the building and turning to exit via a side aisle.
Please don’t talk to others while in the church building – preserve the silence for those who are praying.
We are not able to provide any prayer or hymn books or candles to light.
The toilet in the church will be available and will be cleaned after each session.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
