Services returning to church


Returning to church and attending from home

We are now holding services in St Andrew’s building again, but we are obviously keen to keep everyone as safe as possible and need to follow the Government and Church of England Guidance.  We also recognise that many people will not feel safe entering an enclosed space like St Andrew’s yet.  Almost all our Sunday morning services will be available both in the buidling and online.


For the next few months
, if you intend to join us in person, please book in before 7pm on the Saturday before the service giving your name, contact number* and number of people attending from your household by emailing, texting 07588594410 or facebook messaging @standrews.northswindon.  (We will only be able to take the first 10 households who register and children will need to sit with their parents at all times).   Please also print and fill in this contact consent form and bring it with you if you haven't already done so. Please note we need this consent even if you have filled in the standard church consent form. For privacy details, see the COVID-19 privacy notice.

The words will be projected onto a screen but if you would rather read them from paper, please print them off at home and bring them with you.  You’ll find them here.

You are strongly advised to wear a mask while sitting in the pews - if you take communion, remove it before going up and replace it on your return. Note government guidance has changed and face masks will be mandatory from 8 August - we will update this entry when it is clearer how and if this will affect the distribution of communion.

Or, if you’d rather stay at home, join us using the normal Zoom link.


What it's like in the building
