Advisory Group update:
30th September 2020
Pastoral visiting indoors, including home Communion, should be undertaken only where regarded as essential, such as for the pastoral care of the dying. Gatherings outdoors are restricted to 2 households and a maximum of 6 persons. Public worship continues to be an exception to this, although the maximum numbers at weddings and funerals have changed. The perception of Government is that faith communities are very able to apply the rules and safeguard people’s health, and are highly motivated to do so.
