Roadmap back to church

Behind the scenes, we have been working on a plan for our safe return to services in church. We will continue to offer Zoom links to services in church . If you are not ready to return to in-person worship, please do not worry, you will be able to join us virtually for the foreseeable future.  If you wish to join us via Zoom and do not receive the weekly newsletter please email Wendy Foreman

We returned to 8am Eucharists on Sundays and Thursdays, from 4 April (paused during August) o Please join us for Morning Prayer at 8.30am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

Risk assessments relating to the pandemic are available on request. 

Message from the Churchwardens
It is a great joy to be back in church for our services. We wish to keep everyone as safe as possible, and will continue to take precautions.
We will 
keep the signs up on the pews and encourage people to continue sitting in those places, distanced
continue to have the track and trace signs up and ask people to use the app, but discontinue the 'paper' list for Sunday services (this is not a compulsory requirement)
retain hand sanitiser and mask wearing in the building
keep north, west and south doors open for ventilation during services
not re-introduce congregational singing yet but review at the end of August.

A small group of choir singers will sing three hymns during the 10am service over the summer period. 

Welcome to St Alfege Church in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant and fascinating areas. From its beginnings Greenwich has been a place which has received and welcomed new residents and visitors.

This sacred place has been at its centre since St Alfege was martyred in here in 1012. We offer worship for all ages which is uplifting and this involves many in its preparation.  We keep this beautiful church open to visitors, worshippers and those who need time for rest and reflection throughout the week.

A souvenir visitor guide is available from the welcome desk and costs £1.  It includes lovely illustrated layouts by local artist Peter Kent. We also have information available in a number of different languages.   

Please note the crypt is currently closed and is not accessible to visitors. The crypt will be opening on a regular basis as part of the Heart of Greenwich Place and People project - timetable to be confirmed.

Everyone is welcome to attend our acts of worship - we have a number of different services throughout the week. 

If you do not wish to attend a service then you are very welcome to explore St Alfege Church.   Visitors are welcome to explore quietly during services.  St Alfege  Church plays an active role in the community and occasionally we may be closed or restrict some areas because a service or an event is taking place.   All closures are noted on our home page so please check before visiting.

Read our Accessibility information page.
