Following the announcement made by the Prime Minister on Monday 4 January, the current advice is that “you can attend places of worship for a service. However, you must not mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. You should maintain strict social distancing at all times”.
Public Mass will therefore continue to take place.
The new variant of Covid-19 is more transmissible and case numbers are rising in this area, so please remember to wear a face covering and be mindful of where you are seated in a pew – it is imperative that you maintain at least a one metre distance at all times during the Mass, including when lining up for Holy Communion and leaving the church. This is especially important at the busier weekend Masses.
If you are able, please log in when you arrive at church using the NHS Test and Trace App on your phone and scanning the QR code which is displayed at the entrance and exits of the church. Otherwise, you will be asked to give your contact details to the Mass Stewards.
Everyday, at midday and 6.00pm, the wonderful sound of the Angelus Bell sounds at St. John’s. If you can, please take a few moments’ break from whatever you are doing to join with the parish community and say the Regina Caeli. In this way, we will come together in unified prayer, even if we cannot be together in the church.
The weekly Children’s Liturgy has resumed virtually on Zoom !
To ensure as many families as possible can participate, the sessions will
alternate between Saturday afternoons at 5.00pm and Sunday mornings at 11.30am.
The next session is this Saturday, 23rd January at 5:00 pm.

The NHS Test and Trace service will help to reduce the spread of COVID-19, save lives and also help us to get back to a more normal way of life. We must do our bit to support this by making sure we collect details of anyone attending Mass.
We now have displayed in our Church a QR code for parishioners to scan, using the NHS COVID-19 app. If you have downloaded the app to your phone, please scan the code as you enter the Church. If you are unable to use the app, the Mass Stewards will ask for your contact details; these will be held for 21 days.
For all information regarding coronavirus.
