We are doing this because we are committed to caring for everyone, and especially for those who are most vulnerable. We want to keep everyone safe. We need to be sure that only vaccinated or exempt people are gathering here. This minimises the risk of anyone getting infected with Covid.
This isn’t just this parish: it applies to all our churches and follows the best health advice. Other churches are also taking this approach. Requiring vaccine passes is a practical way of loving our neighbours.
People can join this gathering by showing their My Vaccine Pass. If someone cannot do that, there are some other ways to worship. (see our Church@Home service elsewhere on this website.)
