Churches now open or re-opening post-Covid

Churches now open or re-opening post-Covid

Please remember that once Elders have completed satisfactory Risk Assessments and recorded a decision to reopen church buildings, they must notify Geoff Milnes, East Midlands Synod Property Officer by emailing, specifying the planned date of reopening.

The document Models for Transition from Lockdown shares some of the possibilities that churches have explored in lockdown and the ways in which they are now adapting their practice as they return to their buildings. It is available on the Synod website:
