St.Alban’s has a safeguarding policy. Concerns about safeguarding should be raised with Mrs.L.Lewis, Tel 01709 544618.

postheadericon Covid-19 and St.Albans

On 23rd June the Government announced that church services could recommence on 4th July. Numbers would be restricted, and social distancing must be maintained.

No definite decisions have yet been made on the implementation of this at St.Albans.

Christenings and Weddings

These are covered by the above advice.


From 15th June funerals will be permitted in church, but with only a maximum of 10 mourners present. Social distancing rules will have to be obeyed in church – signs will indicate how this is to be done. Funerals at the graveside or the crematorium are still possible, with similar restrictions applying.

Families who have been unable to hold a funeral during the lockdown may like to consider holding a Memorial/Thanksgiving service once the current restrictions are over.


Private prayer in church

From 15th June churches will be permitted to open for private prayer. At St.Alban’s, the church will be open from 10-12 a.m. on Wednesdays, and 2-4 p.m. on Sundays. To maintain distancing, there will be a one-way system around the aisles, and marked seats where those visiting may sit.
