COVID-19

MEETING MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE DIFFERENT BUT WE CAN STILL WORSHIP

This is a worrying time for many, even as legal restrictions ease. We are taking every reasonable precaution to protect you when gathering for worship and continue to pray for a breakthrough in Covid-19. We are all in this together and we are here if you need us.

We are currently meeting in-person and online – all the details can be found here. We will meet with God, with each other and gather for worship whether in the building on from our own homes.

Our services will feel a bit different from normal

  • We will keep some social distancing in place, and ask people to be mindful that some may wish to keep their distance. Pre-booking is not required.
  • We are asking people to still wear masks if they can.
  • Restrictions on singing have now been lifted.
  • We won’t have service sheets, and so our liturgy and song-words will appear on the tv screen/projector.
  • Our sermon/reading/prayers/sung worship – may or may not be led by someone in person: some of this service content may be pre-recorded and played on the tv screen or live-streamed from another venue.
  • Safeguards have been put in place to enable us to share communion together.

Keeping you Safe

  • Please do not attend in-person if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, and follow related Government advice.
  • ElectroClean have been hired provide a deep-clean and solution that provides bacterial and viral protection on all surfaces in our building. This is renewed every 28 days.
  • We have a reduced capacity in the building, and will be maintaining contact details for track & trace purposes (booking details will be kept hold of for 21 days for this purpose).
  • We have introduced a one-way system. Everyone must enter in household groups through the side door and exit through the front doors, unless there are mobility issues and you require the use of the ramp. This will mean queuing outside of the building and entering in household groups – 15 mins prior to the service start time, in order to get you seated prior to the start of the service. If you have not booked a ticket, you may not be allowed entry – you will only be allowed entry if there are available spaces or a ticket holder has not been able to arrive on time. All members of the congregation must be seated by 9:55, which is the cut-off time for arrival at a 10am service.
  • A welcomer will meet you at the door, squirt hand sanitiser on your hands, take your name and show you to your seats, where we’ll ask you to remain for the duration of the service. The disabled toilet is available if required, but we would ask that you only use them if absolutely necessary.

If you have any queries about any of this, please do get in touch – we will happily talk it through with you.
