As we are still in Lockdown, no mingling is permitted until the rule of 6 is allowed possibly on March 29thWe will be asking everyone to simply enter the Church and sit down without pausing for conversations.  At the end of the service the Priest will indicate how to leave in a staggered way so we can keep the exit routes clear and enable all present to simply and quietly walk out and make their way home.  If you are able to join us please do help us and everyone to maintain and respect each other’s space and follow any guidance given.

As before if you wish to be at a service it will help us to know in advance please contact myself (vicar@portseaparish.co.uk), or Revd Sam (assocvicar@portseaparish.co.uk) or Revd Sue (sue.whitelock@portseaparish.co.uk).
