A few pointers about coming to worship in church​​

  • Please do not come if you are unwell or have any COVID-19 symptoms

  • Masks are now compulsory - Government rules, not ours!

  • The service will be 'said' as we are not permitted to sing at the moment

  • Communion will be in one kind only (the bread)

  • Please follow instructions about social distancing, especially when it comes to receiving communion.



You are now warmly invited to come and pray in our churches at the following times:

St Peters Gildersome        Every Wednesday from 10.00 - noon

St Pauls Drighlington        Every Wednesday from 2.00-4.00

Whilst we all know that the church can worship outside the confines of a physical building and ‘we can pray anywhere’, still there is something vital and life-giving about being able to come into our much-loved buildings to find peace, comfort and spiritual resource.


Please read these ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ as you prepare to come to our churches to make the experience safe for everyone.

Will there be a service?  No, there will not be any corporate prayer or worship during individual prayer times. The churches are opening for prayer only. 


What COVID-19 regulations will be in place? When you arrive you should wash your hands using the hand gel provided. Observe the customary social distancing  measures that we have all become accustomed to. 

Should I wear a mask? Yes, the Government has now updated the guidance to make the wearing of masks compulsory in churches.

Will toilets be open? Yes. However, to keep social distancing we will observe a ‘one in, one out’ system. Our stewards will be on hand to assist.


Can I come if I am over 70 or vulnerable? Yes, although you should take extra care and mitigate risks to yourself. Please do not come if you exhibit any COVID symptoms or feel unwell. This is to protect yourself and others who may be present.
