Public Worship at St Nicholas during the January 2021 lockdown
In light of the national lockdown and a significant increase in infection rates in Brighton and Hove, public celebration of the Eucharist is temporarily suspended at the parish church.
Holy Communion remains available for those who wish to receive it, and will be administered from the Reserved Sacrament at 10.15am on Sundays. This liturgy lasts for less than 15 minutes.
Please consider your own vulnerability carefully before coming to church.
The parish clergy will continue to offer the Eucharist privately for the people of the parish each week.
These arrangements will be reviewed on 4 February.
Covid-secure worship in the parish church during the national lockdown
We ask you to
- Use the hand sanitiser provided on entry and exit
- Wear a face covering over nose and mouth all the time you are in the building. This is now mandatory, except for those with medical exemptions
- make every effort to maintain 2m physical distance from one another. Mingling in the church and churchyard is not permitted.
- An NHS Test & Trace form and pen are on each chair. If you are happy to leave your details, please fill in the form and place it in the Test and Trace tin as you leave. Test & trace information is retained for this purpose only, and disposed of securely after 21 days. If you prefer to use a QR code, this is displayed in the porch and by the sanitiser table.
Please stay at home if you are feeling unwell, or if you or any member of your household have symptoms of coronavirus.
