We are delighted to report that our church at Clowne will be open again for a service of Holy Communion on Sunday 2nd August at 10.00am. All are welcome to attend if you feel safe to do so.
We have conducted a full risk assessment and the church is laid out for appropriate social distancing. We have a one way system so you enter church by the vestry door and leave by the front door – the floor is marked at 2m intervals so you can queue to come in safely.
We are asking that everyone wears a face covering during the service (unless you have a medical exemption), spare masks will be available if you need one. You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entry and sign in (for NHS Track and Trace purposes – data will be kept for 21 days before being destroyed).
For those who do not feel comfortable coming back just yet, the service will be live-streamed on the St John the Baptist Facebook page and by the end of the day will be viewable on YouTube with the words for you to follow on the screen and on this website on the usual page for Sunday Services Online. The sermon will also be available to listen to on the Dial a Sermon line 01246 388487.
Watch this video here to see the new layout:
Please wear a face covering when in church to protect yourself and those around you.
There will be no singing, sadly, but please do join in with the words in bold in the order of service as usual.
We will share the peace at a distance!
Come up to receive communion when prompted, communion will be in one kind only (the bread). If you would rather not receive communion you can still come up for a blessing. When you reach the front of the line you can remove your mask for receiving communion and then replace afterwards. Take your time for your special moment with God.
Please leave any collection money on the plate provided at the back of church or even better, set up a direct debit by ringing this number in the week:
