Covid-19 and St Alban's Church
Currently the church is open on Sundays for a socially distanced Mass at 10:00 a.m., which will also be available live on Zoom and later as a recording on Youtube.
However, in the light of the rapid spread of Covid-19, the Vicar and Churchwardens urge everyone to consider carefully the risk of attending in person - to others as well as themselves.
We strongly advise that everyone who can follow online does so, unless they are needed for a specific role in the service.
To receive a link for Zoom please contact Fr Gerry, or find the links to recorded services here: http://www.saintalban.co.uk/videos/services/.
Face coverings and hand sanitisation are are compulsory, and households are required to use well separated seating and not to mingle in the church or outside.
The capacity of the building is limitted to 30 people at this time.
Please continue to protect others and yourself by:
- washing your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water or sanitising them with gel containing at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol;
- where possible maintaining 2m social distancing from others who are not part of your household or social bubble;
- wearing a face covering or mask in indoor spaces that are also used (not necessarily simultaneously) by others who are not part of your household or social bubble;
- staying at home as much as possible
A Prayer for the Covid-19 Pandemic, from the Church of England:
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
