ARRANGEMENTS FOR OPENING CHURCHES

 

Yetminster St Andrew 8am - 12 noon daily

 

From 6th July, please enter and leave by the main North Church door.  (The Tower works team have requested sole use of the South door for approximately three months).

 

On arrival please make sure you use the hand sanitiser or gloves provided.

 

Visitors are encouraged to remain standing although there will be one pew available for those who need to sit.  This pew will alternate and be cleaned each day.

 

All doors and pew tops will all be cleaned each day, and we would politely ask that people try not to touch anything.

 

If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask and your own gloves, please do. There will also be gloves available at the entry door. We want to ensure everyone coming into church feels safe and comfortable. For now please bring your own prayer books too.
