Covid Secure Information


At Scarborough Unitarian Church we take your safety extremely seriously. We have now opened our church as a place of worship and as a venue and space for covid-secure events. However, we are erring on the side of caution and we have put in effect some measures to keep everyone safe. We are also keeping a close eye on the reinfection rate and on public health advice.

This page will be updated if there are any changes.

What changes you need to adhere to ​

  • Please do not enter the church within 10 days of you or your household having had a positive COVID-19 test or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Face masks are required inside our building .
  • Ventilation maintained where possible while you’re inside the Church 
  • Sanitise your hands on the way in, we have sanitiser stations by the doors and in the main room.

What are the changes from 19th July 2021?

  • No more capacity restrictions due to social distancing apply. However we have imposed our own limit of 30 people provisionally for now to reflect the size of the building.
  • Face masks are now optional. However, if anybody is class as exempt, please just inform a member of Church Staff and we will try to ensure you are seated with a little more distance as appropriate.
  • No more Track and Trace. But the NHS APP QR code is available to scan in the entrance and we would encourage everybody to use it.
  • Singing is back and wind instruments in groups bigger than 6. However, for your safety we ask you to keep 3 meters apart (government’s advice) use a face mask or a partition.  
  •  Our kitchen can open again. Finally, we can have a cuppa. All hirers must bring their own supplies, you can use our crockery but you need to ensure they are all washed thoroughly using the dishwasher (where possible)at the end of your session and put everything away. The kitchen must remain as you found it. We have a fridge which you can use and a oven, microwave etc.   Hirers are responsible for their own food hygiene requirements etc
  • It is essential  the hirer provides a risk assessment while government guidance requires it.
