COVID INFORMATION TRADITIONAL CAROL SERVICE (Subject to any changes to government requirements)
Before your visit, we strongly recommend that you take an NHS lateral flow test. Please only attend if the result is negative.
Moreover, the Government is recommending, where possible, the continued wearing of face coverings in crowded indoor spaces. We are operating in a Covid-safe manner and would ask attendees remain considerate of fellow members of the congregation, and that, where appropriate, masks be worn when moving around the building. Please protect yourself and protect others. Masks may be removed for singing, if you wish.

IMPORTANT: Should government advice change before 12 December, we will contact you with updated information, which may mean that we require a COVID passport or that numbers are further restricted. Please ensure that the email address/mobile phone number you enter is correct and checked regularly. NOTE: IF the Government has to implement Plan B, then it may be that COVID-19 NHS passports would been to be shown before we can permit entry.

On arrival
In order to reduce the number of people circulating in the building before the service, we will be letting in limited numbers once the auditorium doors are opened. Please aim to arrive no earlier than 4.45pm and be prepared to wait. If you have any access needs, please contact us beforehand

People with wheelchairs, or wheelchair users in their group to contact us separately to book tickets so we can keep an eye on numbers. This has been a pain previously so I’m hoping we can ask up front.
