St Austin's Church re-opening update

Churches in England can re-open for private prayer from Monday 15th June 2020. However strict measures need to be put in place in order to meet the goverment's guidelines. There is a good deal of work to be undertaken before approval to open and so St Austin's will not be ready to open for a while yet.

To help organise please let Bernard Martin know if you are willing to act as steward (two hours at a time, possibly Tuesday morning, Thursday and Saturday afternoons but this is to be confirmed yet). A number of people have already told Bernard and/or Fr David already that they are willing to help but it won't do any harm to confirm this and ensure I have your email and mobile number.

Bernard can be contacted at berneboy60@gmail.com Telephone: 07858257839 or 01924 299091

If you are willing to play a more active part, possibly with some additional responsibility please let Bernard know also. An example of this might be writing up the draft risk assessment or simila
