Spot the signs of coronavirus - NHS advice

A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature). A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).

Notice from St Andrew's Psalter Lane
Posted by in
St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church

We are sad to announce that, following advice from both the Church of England and the Methodist Church, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all services until further notice. We will continue to look at creative ways of exploring how worship, care and service might still be offered to church members and to the wider community - keep checking our website for updates. We have also taken the decision to suspend several of our community events, such as Knit and Natter, the Tuesday Café and the Parent and Baby Group, as well as our Wednesday morning Holy Communion services and Taizé Prayer for Lent. See the Calendar and the Weekly Noticesheet sections of the website for the latest updates.

Message from the Lantern Theatre...

 

Following advice from the UK government, issued on the 16 March, the Lantern is now closed until the end of June, to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). 

As you can imagine, our voluntary team are very busy working in the background. We ask that audience members bear with us and wait for further news regarding your bookings. We will be in touch once we know if we can reschedule dates or, unfortunately, have to cancel productions where it’s not possible.

We know this will be disappointing for our audiences, members and volunteers. I’m sure you appreciate that the health of our community is important and that this is the right decision. Please look after yourselves and support each other. 

See you all again soon.
