CSM MINYANIM - BOOKING SYSTEM
The CSM minyanim booking system is currently being operated to confirm numbers for Kabbalat Shabbat on a Friday evening and for mincha and maariv on Shabbat afternoon/evening.

This is to ensure that we have a minyan for our aveilim.

WEARING OF MASKS
There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering, so, in common with many other shuls, mask wearing is now voluntary.  We will continue to keep some windows and doors open.

We will also continue to monitor the rates each week and keep this issue under review.

FOOD ALLERGIES

Now that more children are coming to shul and enjoying the children’s services, we thought we should remind you that some children are sensitive to some food products and you need to be very careful about any sweets or snacks that you bring to shul.  If in doubt please leave at home.

If your child has any allergies, it would be helpful if you notified us and also the children’s service leaders and we’ll do our best to control things although we can’t watch all of the children, all of the time, so you need to take care please.
