Manchester will be placed into Tier 3 Covid restrictions on Friday 23rd October. The updated guidance for places of worship now explicitly states that mixing of households is not permitted,
“In areas subject to “COVID alert level – very high” restrictions, you must not mix outside of your household or support bubble indoors, including within a place of worship, or outdoors.
You must not meet with friends and family indoors in any setting, including a place of worship, unless they are part of your household or support bubble.”
Therefore, our committee have decided that, in order to provide a safe and sociable experience for everyone at our Sunday services, we will be returning to having our services on Zoom only and Sunday services will not take place in the church for the time being.
I appreciate that this will be disappointing news for those of you who have been enjoying attending Sunday services in the church building for the last month. I hope that the Tier 3 restrictions will not be in place for very long and we will be able to return to gathering in person safely soon. In the meantime I look forward to seeing you on Zoom.
With love and blessings
Lay Person in Charge
