Church is open at All Saints' Blackwell, we are able to offer you:
08.30am Holy Communion in church
10.30am Holy Communion in church and with live online Zoom access. Details available from the Parish Office
We have hand sanitisers available in church for parishioners to use. In addition, priests presiding at the Eucharist, communion administrators and servers should wash their hands with soap and hot water immediately prior to the service and this should be supplemented by use of an alcohol-based hand sanitiser prior to commencement of communion. Only the priest can have the chalice. We cannot sing hymns, but we have to wear masks throughout the service. We also do a track and trace to keep a record of who comes and when. We cannot share the peace in the traditional way or handle the collection plate.
Thank you for following the new guidelines.
