Church Worship in The Penlee Cluster

Updated: 07/05/2022

An open safe space in the Covid 19 world 

Our church buildings, which have been sacred spaces for generations of people, provide a place to think and be aware that we are in the presence of God...a God who loves and upholds us. We Celtic Christians call these “thin places” where earth is touched by heaven. 

We are aware that the prospect of returning to life as near to normal have very mixed reactions in our congregations. So we are trying to find a solution to cater for as many needs as possible and to allow as many as possible to feel comfortable to worship in our churches.
1. Clergy and other staff will continue to test for Covid twice a week and wear masks when distributing communion.
2. Hand sanitiser will still be used when entering the church and receiving communion.
3. Communion will still be offered in one kind: ie: no chalice.
4. An area of each church will still be marked up for social distancing.
5. The peace will not be shared by handshakes.
6. We will ask that people respect each other’s needs for social distancing and mask wearing.
7. We will encourage people to have refreshments after worship seated at tables.
