UPDATED INFORMATION REGARDING OUR PARISH FEAST DAY & CONSECRATION
We are pleased to announce that due to easing of restrictions, we are able to allow more faithful in our Church based on the 1 person per 2sqm rule. This means that 200 people are allowed inside the Church. Therefore people DO NOT NEED TO BOOK in order to attend Church. The first 200 people will be allowed inside and once we reach capacity, faithful will be asked to stand outside. Chairs, outdoor screens and speakers will be available for those sitting outside.
ON SITE PARKING
* On site parking during the Vespers service and the Consecration on the 25th of November will be limited. Once our car park reaches full capacity, people will be asked to park their cars in the streets around the Church. There will be a DROP OFF POINT outside the Church for our elderly faithful.
****WE KINDLY REMIND EVERYONE TO BE MINDFUL OF THEIR BEHAVIOUR WHEN PARKING IN THE STREETS. PLEASE PARK WHERE IT IS LEGALLY ALLOWED. DO NOT PARK IN DRIVEWAYS!***
