Please see our COVID-19 risk assessment (updated 25th March 2021).

Please see our Privacy Notice which gives information about how we keep your information secure

Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre is a COVID-19 secure venue.

How we continue to keep you safe - with effect from 24th February 2022:

The Government will remove the legal restrictions relating to Covid-19, from February 24th, and in its place is its ‘plan for living with Covid-19’. (Gov.UK). The legal restrictions requiring self-isolation following a positive lateral flow test for Covid-19 will be removed, but the Government emphasises that Covid has not gone away, and high levels of infection currently remain.

We at Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre will do all we can to ensure that CCHC remains a safe place for residential guests, visitors and staff. Please help us to keep you safe by following the Governments updated guidance:

The government has published its plan for living with COVID-19. [a 63-page downloadable document]

Item 56 of the document Specifically states:

a. Getting vaccinated;

b. Letting fresh air in if meeting indoors, (or meet outside);

At CCHC, we will ensure public spaces, including the chapels are well ventilated.

c. Wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet, when rates of transmission are high;

At CCHC, guests are encouraged to continue to wear masks/face coverings when in public spaces, and moving around the building. Staff will be encouraged to wear masks too.

d. Trying to stay at home if you are unwell;

e. Taking a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and staying at home and avoiding contact with other people if you test positive;

At CCHC: if you develop symptoms of Covid, or a member of your household, in the week before you are due to come and stay (or visit), please do a lateral flow test if you can, and do not come if the test is positive. Please let the office know as soon as possible.

If you develop symptoms of Covid while you are at CCHC, please alert a member of staff immediately and do a lateral flow test if you can (we encourage you to bring a test with you!). if the test is positive, we reserve the right to ask you to return home.

f. Washing your hands and following advice to ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’.

Be aware of social distancing.
