Welcome to the Church of St John The Evangelist, Burgess Hill
“We exist to worship God and in the name of Jesus Christ, to reach out and share with everyone, his life and his love”
Dear Church Family,
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. We are continuing to keep a close eye on what the Church of England and especially Chichester Diocese are saying regarding safe practice at worship and are now writing to let you know what the PCC have approved as the next steps that will be taken at St John’s.
We understand that many of you will still feel quite vulnerable and so we are keeping most of our safeguards in place. However, although the wearing of face masks is not a legal requirement, we would strongly request people to still wear them, to help those around them to feel safe and more comfortable.
From Sunday 29th August we will be introducing limited congregational singing during which masks must be worn.
You will notice that more tickets are available from September: this is because we will be opening up the currently blocked off pews in the North aisle. This will give people a choice of how socially distanced they wish to be until eventually all the pews have been unblocked. The one-way system will remain for now and there will be hand sanitiser available. We will also continue to take Communion in one kind only.
SUNDAYS 10am – Sung Eucharist
Please book tickets on Ticket Source (September is available now):
Ticketsource – book your Sunday tickets here
If you are unable to book your own ticket, please contact one of us and we will book it for you.
WEDNESDAYS 10.30am – Holy Communion (said)
You do not need to book in advance, however contact details will be taken at the door.
We will provide updates on our website and our Facebook page and by email if we have any further news or there are any changes at St John’s.
Please do contact one of us if you have any concerns or would like clarification of the changes we are implementing.
Stay safe & God Bless.
