Parish Safeguarding Policy July 23

Coronavirus – Covid-19

updated 5/09/2023

Covid-19 Safe for Public Worship

Following discussion at the PCC we will be offering the chalice at St David’s with two standing chalice bearers on either side of the celebrant who is distributing the bread.  At St Michael’s we will return to offering the bread and wine at the high altar.  Please note that no one is expected to receive from the chalice, but it is there for those who wish to do so.  As always, the fulness of Holy Communion can be received in one kind only.

Face coverings in church are now voluntary in church, as elsewhere.  But please stay aware of social distancing.  We are pleased to be serving refreshments after our services and are grateful to those who are making this possible.  At St David’s we will keep fully spaced seating on the south side of church at the back but the space near the kitchen will now be cleared of chairs on Sunday.  We will be reviewing other matters like the sharing of the peace in the coming weeks and please make your views known to any of your PCC representatives. Please be patient, kind and respect the personal space of other people if they don’t wish to get too close!

Please do not attend church if you are feeling ill or have tested positive for Covid

The Church building

Our building was designed by W D Caroe and commissioned by Revd C J Valpy French. It was consecrated by the Bishop of Exeter on the 9th January 1900.

The Waterloo hero Alexander Cavalie Mercer is buried in our graveyard.

The church building has recently undergone a transformation, with much-needed repairs to the west end, and a remodelling of the interior to create a warm, open, welcoming space.
Our west door is now open and accessible for everyone to use. The new path also provides step free access to our parish room and west door.
