Coronavirus advise

St. Anne's and Earnley Churches will be open for private prayer from Monday 15 June

Please ensure you follow the Governments guidelines for social distancing.

St. Anne’s will be open from 11.00am - 5.00pm, Monday to Saturday and 11.30am - 5.00pm on Sundays. Part of the church has been roped off for the use of private prayer and to enable that area to be cleaned regularly. Please do not go outside of this area.

Please ensure you use the hand sanitiser, provided in the porch, on your way in and also use the sanitiser provided near the door, at the back of the church, on your way out. This is very important, not only to safeguard yourself, but to protect others using the church.

Please do not move kneelers! They are placed to denote where to sit for your prayer time keeping these allocated seats separate. Please, also, do not touch hymn books and service books.

We want everyone using the church to stay safe and stay well.

At Earnley church, please ensure you read the notices that will guide you in the use of the church for private prayer.
