Stewarding

Changes to Stewarding.

 

Please note that, with effect from Saturday 7th May, we have made the following changes to Stewarding in church:

 

1. There will be only 1 steward in the porch to ‘Meet and Greet’ and sanitise hands before mass.

 

2. Stewards will no longer guide people out for Holy Communion. We ask that the congregation ‘self regulate’ the movement from the benches to the altar, come out in an orderly fashion a bench at a time, starting at the front and not the back as we have been doing, and avoid standing queues in the aisles.

 

3. Stewards will no longer guide people out at the end of mass. Again, we ask that the congregation ‘self regulate’ the movement from the benches out of the church, a bench at a time, starting from the back. We ask that you avoid congestion when going through the glass doors leading out into the porch area. We also ask that you do not gather in the porch, but make your way out through the porch to the outside of church. This will allow for a steady flow of people out of the church and avoid ‘grouping’ which slows things down.

 

We appreciate your co-operation and patience as we attempt to relax the restrictions in a slow and appropriate manner over a period of weeks and months ahead.
