    Father,

    Teach me the joy of simply sitting before you,

    Amen

    GUIDANCE ON RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGES POSED BY THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK 

    LATEST CORONAVIRUS UPDATES ON 30.11.20

    Dear all,

    Yesterday (Sunday, November 29) the government published its latest guidance for the Christmas period which includes guidance on outdoor carol services and nativity plays. Some FAQs regarding this update have been put onto the main CofE webpage for Coronavirus. The guidance confirms that indoor singing by both amateur and professional choirs will be permitted, and that congregations could sing carols outdoors, providing they are physically distanced.

    •          The government's guidance permits suitably distanced and risk assessed outdoor carol services in all tiers under the revised England Covid levels, which must also be in accordance with the government’s guidance on performing arts and the suggested principles on safer singing.

    •          The guidance also includes a section on nativity plays which is also of significance to us over this period where audiences are permitted in both tiers 1 (which covers Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly) & 2 (which covers our two parishes in Devon), but not in tier 3.

    •          The maximum number of people present should take into account the area of the space and the requirement to maintain 2m social distancing at all times.

    •          Churches planning Christmas services are encouraged to complete a risk assessment to ensure that worshippers can be welcomed as safely as possible. 

    Bishop Sarah, who chairs the Church of England’s Recovery Group, said: “Singing is a very special part of our worship, especially at Advent and Christmas, so I know that the announcement that we will be able to come together for public singing outdoors this Christmas will bring comfort and joy to many. Advent and Christmas this year will not be the same as previous years but having outdoor congregational singing and indoor carol services with choirs is a reasonable balance and recognises our duty to protect and care for each other.”

    Sent on behalf of Archdeacon Audrey Elkington & Archdeacon Paul Bryer.
