St Mary’s Church Haynes

Our Rector to be, Revd. Caren Topley has sole responsibility at present to make decisions about how we make changes to return to normal. Caren would like a gentle, phased approach, that will help to keep everyone safe and has provided the new guidelines below to use from 20 July 2021. 

Worshipping God together ─ a phased return to “normality” - while keeping you safe in our church:

No need to book

  • A face mask is required* when entering, leaving or moving around the church.
  • Wear a face mask when singing.
  • Alternate pews will be used but different households can sit together.
  • When Holy Communion is administered it will be in one kind only and will be brought to your pew.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available.


* With the exception of children and those who are unable to wear a face mask
