Covid-19

Following current advice from the Church of England, Holy Trinity Roehampton is delighted that we will be holding services in church, once more, from  Sunday 9th August 2020.

The Eucharist service will be held at 10.00am every Sunday. As you might expect, there will be significant differences from the last time you were at church. Despite these necessary Covid-19 safe precautions, we intend to make the service as similar as possible to our past worship and warmly look forward to welcoming and seeing everyone once again.

Do please come slightly earlier than you might normally do, to allow us to get everyone seated safely and in time for a 10.00am start. We recommend trying to arrive by 9.45am at the latest.

Please read HERE the advice and actions, which will allow our services to continue.  The latest government update has stated that face-coverings are now MANDATORY in church services unless you have a special exemption on medical or other grounds.

For those who are unable to attend in person, Holy Trinity will be live streaming the Sunday Service on our FaceBook page.  Please click HERE  (only live between 10am – 12noon on Sundays) to watch and partake in the service virtually.

 


Help for those in need during this time is still available in Roehampton.  Please read below and get in touch with any of these services if you need further support.
