We are gathering to worship Sunday by Sunday in our building. Our morning service is at 11am and our evening service is at 7pm. In addition, our Tuesday night prayer meetings have also resumed in person.
Visitors are always welcome
There is no longer any requirement to wear face coverings in the building but some people do, feel free to come along with or without a face covering while respecting others in attendance. You can find helpful guidance about the use of face coverings, together with details of other exemptions here.
To maintain social distancing seats will be set out in groups of one, two, or more, each separated from other groups, our deacons will be happy to make alternations to the seating should it be necessary.
There are a number of groups who still should not attend at all:
• No-one with a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste, should attend public worship
• No-one waiting for a coronavirus test result should attend public worship
• No-one required to self-isolate for any reason should attend public worship. This includes those returning from any international travel which falls under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) Regulations 2020.
We will break bread together as part of our worship. Both the bread and the wine will be distributed in separate, disposable cups to minimise any risk.
Those preparing and distributing the cups will observe strict hygiene and wear masks.
In the building
During the service, to maintain good ventilation, we will have as many windows (and even external doors) open as possible. You may want to dress appropriately!
There will be ample provision of hand sanitiser which we encourage you to make use of as you arrive and as needed during your time with us.
During the service
Collection bags will not be passed round during the service, instead, for those who are supporting the church financially, we will have a box at the door where you can leave your offerings.
The preacher will not be wearing a mask during the service. Because of this the pulpit has been moved to ensure that it is 4m from the congregation.
