Church reopening – Volunteers

Dear friends of the Shrine,

Our church is due to reopen for private prayer on Monday the 15th June from 1pm-3pm daily. We are looking forward to opening our doors to visitors once again, but we need enough volunteers to help on a rota basis.

Volunteer stewards are required to welcome visitors and to ensure that they comply with diocesan social distancing and safety guidelines.

All stewards need to be under seventy years of age and free from any health issues that could compromise their personal safety.
Stewards will need to wear disposable face masks and gloves whilst on duty in church, these will be provided.

They will need to ensure that all visitors use hand sanitiser on entry and exit from the church.
No more than ten visitors are allowed to be in church at a time. The maximum length of time for a visit is fifteen minutes. Visitors must adhere to the two metre social distancing guideline during their visit.
Toilet and hand washing facilities will be available for stewards. If you feel able to volunteer and can spare an hour to two every week please get in touch and let us know the time/ day that is most convenient for you to enable us to add you to our Volunteer Rota.

Thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated.

If you wish to sign up, please contact Joyce:joyceashton1(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)btinternet.com
 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

 May God bless you all, your Canons are praying for you,

HLF 4 Presentation booklet

In September 2018, we won HLF funding for Development to prepare a second round Application by November/December 2019

This second round pass is highly competitive, but funding would restore the Dome, drum and Sanctuary roofs, to improve New Brighton. Local councils and museums have large teams of people working on Heritage Grant applications. We will not succeed in getting this funding without your help!

Please find here a presentation of the grant and a sign up form, if you want to help us for this development phase.
