You need to book a place, phone the parish office on 01189 814572 leaving a message if no answer.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of Mass.
Bring your own face mask or face covering and wear it at all times except for Holy Communion - which will be under one kind (the Host).
Use the automatic hand sanitizer provided when entering and leaving the church (or use your own sanitizer).
Follow the instructions of the stewards who will direct you where to sit, at Holy Communion, and on exiting the church.
Don't kneel in the pews as this will make you too close to anyone sitting in the pew in front of you, sit in the marked places as directed by the stewards
and please observe social distancing at all times.
There will be a box for offertory and other collections at the entrance to St Michael's Church and the exit of St Oswald's.
Sorry but the toilets are closed!
These measures are to make sure everyone feels safe when attending church. Let us all work together, follow the guidelines and be considerate of each other as we celebrate together in thanksgiving to God for the gift of the Eucharist.
