Following the most recent guidance from the Diocese of Rochester on the COVID-19 pandemic St George’s Church will be observing the following in all acts of worship as a preventative measure.

  • Holy Communion will only be received in one kind by communicants – i.e. the consecrated bread only.
  • The Peace will be shared with no physical contact or handshaking.
  • Blessings will be given with no physical contact.

St George’s will ensure that all kitchen and toilet facilities are adequately stocked with soap and paper towels. Kitchen and toilet bins are emptied regularly.

The best defence on an individual basis is to keep good hand hygiene by washing regularly with hot water and soap for 20 seconds.

If you have felt unwell, please stay at home and contact the NHS as appropriate for advice.

We continue to pray for those who are affected or infected at this time, and for all those working to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
