The UK Government’s guidance for England and Wales on face coverings says that face coverings must be worn in places of worship from 10 December, for those not exempt. Exceptions apply in both England and Wales for those leading or participating in the service from the front and in hospitality spaces.
In both England and Wales, NHS Covid Passes are not required for entry to places of worship, unless an event exceeds 500 people non-seated or 10,000 people seated.
We will monitor the Government guidance and statements in the coming weeks and update our guidance if necessary.
There is a range of resources below to help churches practically and spiritually during these uncertain times.
