Update on Covid-19 Restrictions

As reported in the last newsletter, the new ‘Rule of Six’ introduced this week does not affect ‘places of worship’. Thus, as currently, we are able to host numbers larger than six for ‘communal worship’.

Celebrations such as weddings, (including their receptions), funerals and other sacramental celebrations will continue to be allowed but are subject to a limit of 30 persons.

Catechetical activities such as sacramental preparation sessions are not affected by the ‘Rule of Six’ as these are formal Religious Education and Formation sessions.

Choirs and music groups are also not restricted by the ‘Rule of Six’ as they come under realms of Performing Arts Guidance. This recognises choirs and music groups during liturgies and their rehearsal periods as a performing art.

New Attendance Card required for entry to church

Our Archbishop has just instructed us to create an accurate record of those who attend Mass or any other service in the church from the 4th July. (This is in line with the ‘Test & Track’ initiative). Thus, you are required to complete attendance cards and bring these to church before attending Mass. Stewards will collect these cards from you before entry to the church. Your cooperation with the Stewards is necessary for our successful reopening. This is what the attendance card looks like:

Official Attendance card

Within the Documents (>Welcome) section there is a Template for Attendance document that you can print off and fill in. or fill in on your computer and print off. The stewards will make some provision for those without printing facilities.

Church History

Carshalton Beeches Mass Centre was established by Father Frederick Rhead in 1934, and served from Holy Rosary, Sutton, where Father Rhead was Parish Priest. A temporary chapel with a corrugated roof was built at the same time and blessed by Bishop William Brown, then auxiliary bishop in Southwark. It remained “temporary” for forty seven years! You can read the full church history on our Church History page.
