Resumption of Collective Worship
It is with great joy that, from Wednesday 2nd December, we will be permitted to resume public Mass.
Surrey has been placed in Tier 2 restrictions which means that different households will not be allowed to sit together in church. We will retain the social distancing rules that were in place before the recent lockdown and would ask that face coverings are worn by all those to whom this requirement applies.
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.

Family crib visits: The church will be open on Saturday 19th December from 10.00am to 12.00noon for family bubble (one household) visits to see the crib and spend a short time in private prayer.
Regina Caeli will be said in place of the Angelus
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.

Weekly offertory collection
If you wish to continue making your weekly offering, please find information about how to do this on Gift Aid & Giving
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.
