Covid-19 and seating arrangement in St Brigid’s Church.

Covid-19 and seating arrangement in St Brigid’s Church.

With each passing weekend it is obvious that more and more parishioners wish to return to Sunday Mass. With good management we have gradually opened the Church to accommodate as many as possible, while observing the health regulations. This weekend we have made a further adjustment to the seating arrangements in the Church, but we emphasise that we rely on the cooperation and understanding of our parishioners.


PLEASE NOTE: The seats on the Side Isles are “multi-occupancy”, and is reserved for families, or for those in a “bubble”. These seats hold 6 persons. Single persons or couples are asked to use the seating in the Centre Isles.


The seating arrangement in the Centre Isles has changed slightly. Every other row accommodates TWO persons at either end of the bench. However, the formally closed seats are now open, but the seating is reserved for the centre of the bench only – please note that you must not sit at the ends of these benches. The seats available for occupancy are marked with a green tick; those unavailable are marked with a red X.

Please follow the directions of the Stewards.

The capacity of the Church is now increased to 275. Until such time as the Church is fully open, it is always possible that there may not be seats available for some parishioners. We ask that you to wait in the porch, or outside the Church, and assure you that Holy Communion will be brought to you. We are doing everything possible to ensure that those coming to St Brigid’s feel welcome.
