Face coverings. The government has asked that everyone wears a face covering inside the church building, except children under the age of 11 and those with certain disabilities/health conditions.
Please print your own order of service at home or bring it on your phone. Please also allow extra time to enter the building and be seated for the service. Please maintain a strict 2m distance throughout your visit and use hand sanitiser regularly. We invite those who wish to participate in the Government’s Test and Trace initiative by giving your name and phone number at the door. The service will feel a little different, as movement will be restricted. We will be able to join in singing only in our heart.
Coffee after the service/today. The cafe is open Friday-Sunday, please click here for opening times. Please pick up a coffee after the service (and why not buy one for a friend) to support St Martin’s.
