    Blessed Lord, who caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: help us to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them, that, through patience and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.

    LATEST CORONAVIRUS UPDATES ON 05.10.20

     

    Dear colleagues,

    Please note that PCC Secretaries are no longer included in these mailings, do forward if appropriate.

    It is clear that Covid-19 infections are increasing in some of our communities, and that our need for careful behaviour is needed more than ever.  Please note the following information:

    1. Worship is currently exempt from the ‘rule of 6’ only because of the additional restrictions which we have in place.  So mask-wearing, hand-hygiene and physical-distancing continue to be most important for ministers and congregations alike.  Those attending worship do so at their own risk, but should not put others at risk by their actions.  As long as we keep to these patterns of behaviour our worship should be safe to attend.
    2. It is evident that churches are generally keeping these requirements well (thank you), but that after-worship behaviour is sometimes dangerously relaxed.  Please note that physical-distancing and mask-wearing is still required in church porches, and mixing in groups in churchyards and beyond is not permitted.  We fully recognise people’s desire to interact with friends, but if churches are not seen to be abiding by appropriate limitations, our ability to worship in church may be removed.
    3. If you become aware of multiple infections in your congregations, please use the ‘early outbreak management’ document from Public Health England as attached.  It will also be useful to inform your Archdeacon.
    4. Note that on the CofE website there is now information about heating our churches during this time: https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2020-10/COVID%2019%20Church%20Heating%20v1.0.pdf . 
    5. On 30 Sept, an updated version of the document about ministry with children, young people and families was added: https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2020-10/COVID%2019%20Mission%20and%20ministry%20with%20children%20and%20young%20people%20v2.0.pdf

    Thank you so much for all that you are doing to keep your churches safe places, and to enable to worship of God to continue.  As ever, if you have colleagues on this distribution list who do not receive email, I would be grateful if you could please let them know any content relevant to them.  

    Kind regards,

    Ven. Audrey Elkington
    Archdeacon of Bodmin
