Updated 20th September 2021
The majority of coronavirus restrictions have now been lifted at Bridlington Priory. There is no mandatory socially-distanced seating arrangements, wearing masks is voluntary, and hymns are being sung.
The only restrictions in place relate to the administration of Holy Communion. Communion is still being administered in one kind only. Members of the congregation receive bread only; the President consumes a small quantity of wine on behalf of everybody. The President administers the Communion from the Chancel step. Members of the congregation receive standing, having come down the central aisle and then file to left or right to return to their seats from the side aisles.
The full pattern of services has resumed. There is Holy Communion at 8.00am, the principal service at 10.30am and a 6.30pm service. The 10.30am service is a Family Service on the first Sunday of the month and Matins on the third Sunday of the month. On other Sundays there is a celebration of the Eucharist. The 6.30pm service is a celebration of the Eucharist on the third Sunday but is otherwise Evensong.
The 10.30am service and the 6.30pm service are also streamed on the Friends of Bridlington Priory Church Facebook page. Please note that the 8am service will not be streamed live.
