Keeping each other safe
We have provided hand santiser for use in and out of church. There is a one way system in place, and all of our seats are socially distanced at the current legal limit. If you are attending in a bubble please let us know in advance how many and we’ll reserve seating for you together. Appropriate signage is provided to note how to move around the church and find the exits…etc. Currently, the kitchen and toilets are not in use.
We ask that all our visitors wear masks (unless medically exempt) and provide contact information in line with the Welsh Government’s Track and Trace scheme. (We retain this information for 21 days and then it is securely destroyed. It is only used to notify you of any COVID related information applicable to your stay.)
