At present, the Diocese is asking vestries and priests to make prudent decisions with reference to COVID-19 and COVID safety. This is being requested as a result of the recent breakthrough infections among the vaccinated at the Olympics and others throughout the country. Do we consider restoring masks for indoor worship (especially since we are singing) ..... should we have coffee hour outside particularly if food is to be shared? Or would those measures be an overreaction?

Let us begin by erring on the side of caution, strongly encouraging the unvaccinated to wear a mask and the vaccinated to do the same as they feel the need. Ask altar preparers and the presiding priest to wear disposable gloves. Refrain from having the elements (bread and wine) brought forward from the back, rather leaving them on the credence table beside the altar. Ask that food preparers and sharers at all church events use and have disposable gloves available. And, of course, we will keep hand sanitizer at the ready.

Certainly, this is a minimalist approach to protecting the unvaccinated and deterring breakthrough infections, but we are hopeful it will be exactly enough to keep our church family safe without having to return to extreme measures."

The little church with the big heart welcomes you!  Join us each Sunday at 9AM on Grace Church Lane!

From the Bishop's Office

May 14, 2021

On May 13, 2021, the CDC stated that people who are fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus may stop wearing masks in most indoor or outdoor settings.

Later in the day, Governor Northam announced that mask requirements for indoor spaces will remain in place in the Commonwealth of Virginia for the time being. What does this mean for our worship this weekend, May 15 and 16?

Masks are not required for outdoor worship or other outdoor church activities. If the congregation will sing while worshiping outdoors, we recommend that masks be worn because of the increased risk of spreading the virus through airborne droplets.

Masks must be worn by everyone for indoor worship and all other indoor church activities.

As these developments are fleshed out by the CDC and the Virginia Health Department, we will continue to adjust our guidelines accordingly. 


Beginning this Sunday, May 2, 2021, Church will begin at 9 AM because, we are happy to announce that our partner ministry, St. Andrews, will be returning to its services that follow ours.  We will be worshipping in the Parish Hall on Weston Rd. (see address at left)

Also announcing:

Bishop Jennifer Brooke-Davidson will be visiting this Sunday. Please come out to welcome her!
