Personal Prayer in the Church

Our Church will be open for individual prayer on:
Thur/Fri/Sat, 25th – 27th June 2020 from 09:30 – 10:30

We need to adhere to strict guidelines, and I would appreciate you taking the time to familiarise yourself with those here:

  • Church is open for individual prayer only – no group prayer allowed.
  • Enter the church through the main hall doors only and exit through the fire exit doors near the organ, leading to the front lawn.
  • There will always be a steward at the entrance and near the exit to remind you to sanitise your hands on entry and before exiting.
  • Use the pews that have been marked out as safe spaces available and maintain social distancing of 2m from others.
  • Our church has a capacity for 32 individuals or household groups at one time – stewards will ensure that people will have to wait until it is safe for them to enter once others leave. Please be patient.
  • Toilet facilities will not be available.
  • There will be no access to other areas of the church centre.
  • Please refrain from touching images and statues.

The church will be cleaned on a daily basis immediately after the opening time finishes.

We hope to be able to open the church at other times eventually so, if you would like to volunteer as a steward/cleaner, please write an email to the parish office or phone, stating your name, contact details, and which day and times that you are available to be a steward.  Thank you for your support for our Parish Family of St Mary’s, Crayford.

God bless, Fr David
