Welcome Home

Public Masses are now once again being celebrated in St Aidan's church. To keep everyone safe and to comply with government regulations there will be significant changes to our normal practice.

  • Numbers of people attending will be strictly limited and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • In order to comply with Track & Trace requirements, every person attending will need to provide contact details, either on a slip of paper on arrival or in advance by filling in the contact form online (click here).
  • Everyone attending must bring and wear a face mask.
  • Distancing (1 metre plus) will be maintained using signs on the pews indicating where to sit.
  • Stewards will be on hand to direct you to marked places and to control movement during distribution of Communion.
  • We are not permitted to have the church toilet open.
  • There is no restriction on people from vulnerable categories and no upper age limit; however, young people under 16 years and children should be accompanied by an adult.
