Parishioners and guests hoping to join church this week will have to wear face masks inside the churches under new Welsh Government Coronavirus rules.
The rules, which came into force yesterday (Monday, September 15), require everyone over the age of 11 to wear face masks when in enclosed spaces.
A Church in Wales spokesman commented: “Places of worship and church halls can remain open for the range of activities so far permitted and the limit of 6 persons does not apply.
“However, face coverings must be worn by all persons over the age of 11 who participate in activities inside the premises.
“There are exceptions to the requirement to wear a face covering for medical reasons, and it is permitted to remove the covering ‘to communicate with another person who has difficulty communicating (in relation to speech, language or otherwise)’.”

Whether you’re attending private prayer on Wednesday or the service on Sunday, please remember your face masks and stay safe.
