As social distancing is no longer mandatory you will not be required to book a seat and will be free to sit where you wish to. However, you may still be asked to sign in, use sanitiser provided and to respect the space of other worshippers, if that is their wish. You may still be expected to wear face coverings, but during the service you may sing hymns, and speak responses as normal, although books may not be provided. The retiring collection will remain, hand shaking, and hugging are still discouraged to minimise contact. This cautious approach is in line with advice from the Connexion.
The church is set behind the village green just off the High Street and there is roadside parking in front of the church and round The Green.
We welcome everyone to our church to share in worship and other activities. Tea and coffee and a time for fellowship follow the worship. There are facilities for the disabled and for those with hearing aids, we have an induction loop system installed and working in the chapel.
As part of Churches Together in Cheddington, we work with St.Giles Anglican Church having signed a Local Covenant with them. Many of our activities are run jointly making the most of the two buildings and uniting together to share God's love in the community we serve.
