at St Mary's
Our usual programme of services in church has resumed and the times of these are listed below.
. Please note that although face coverings are no longer a legal requirement in church you are encouraged to wear one should you wish.
. We have resumed offering the common cup but you may prefer to receive Communion in the bread alone.
. Please use the hand sanitizer provided.
. Please respect the need of others for space.
. Whilst the encouragement is still to come to church and interact with other members, for those at home Holy Communion will usually be streamed, on the first Sunday of the month, to the Church’s Facebook page, 'St Mary’s Church, Stone-next-Dartford.'
On Wednesdays between 2 pm and 4 pm the church will be open and accessible should you wish to take the opportunity. Certain areas of the church will be cordoned off, although it should still be possible to sit down and to light a candle.
