Loosening Restrictions on our worship

Summer 2021

The government has recently removed legal requirements for churches to adhere to the now-familiar covid restrictions. This move is accompanied by a call to personal responsibility and an appropriate sense of caution.

During the six Sundays over summer (25 July - 29 August) we will be removing many of the restrictions on our services, whilst continuing to practice lower-level controls.

These policies will be reviewed in time for the start of Autumn term, to determine whether we will be able to remove remaining limitations.

Staying together on the journey

Across our church and wider society there will be differences of approach to a number of the restrictions, face coverings in particular. We encourage an attitude of respect and love towards one another as we journey through the coming season together. 

What will change from 25 July?

  • Congregation members are no longer required to wear a face covering.
  • People are free to sing with or without a mask; congregants will no longer be advised not to sing.

What will stay the same?

  • Services will be limited to 120 people, with online booking encouraged to help manage capacity. Extra measures to keep the building well ventilated will continue.
  • Chairs will remain unlinked so that they can be spaced out where this is preferred.
  • Services will continue in a shorter format (60 minutes or less).
  • Use of hand sanitiser will continue to be encouraged.
  • Communion will be distributed in one kind, where people are seated. Distributors will continue to sanitise hands and wear a face covering.
  • Anyone who has exhibited CV-19 symptoms or had a positive test, or been asked to isolate, is asked to remain at home.

If you remain anxious about attending services, then you are welcome to watch online or you might prefer our smaller 8am service.

Who we are

All Saints is an anglican church with a strong evangelical tradition serving the parish of Lindfield in the Diocese of Chichester in West Sussex. 

Although we are a local church, we are also committed to supporting God's work further afield - through the Sussex Gospel Partnership and through our many mission partners who are involved in mission work in this country and across the world.

Hugh LeadingOur aim is to be a welcoming Christian community, embodying as well as proclaiming the gospel of God. 
Our belief as a church is grounded in the teaching of the Bible, the inspired Word of God. We joyfully acknowledge Jesus as our Saviour and try to follow him day-to-day as our Lord. We are not a perfect church, but we are trying, by God's grace, to grow in faith, hope and love each day. Our aim, therefore, is to be a disciple-making church, building up and growing mature followers of Christ who will be his witnesses in the world.
