Masks are now not mandatory for attendees and contact tracing is no longer required.

The church is continuing however to restrict certain activities at this time.

Holy Communions will only be able to be handed out, those who wish to receive it on the tongue should come at the end of the procession.

Islanders are also reminded that if they are showing any symptoms of coronavirus, they should remain at home and not attend any services.

St Thomas's Church first opened it's doors in 1887 and is the largest church in the Channel Islands.
