Our services take place at 11am each Sunday in our church building and are also broadcast online on our Facebook page.
Following the Government’s announcement on the relaxing of restrictions there will be the following changes to services from 25th July:
- Whilst wearing a face covering is no longer mandatory, we continue to encourage those attending services to wear one.
- Social distancing is no longer required, but please be aware of other people’s comfort zones with regards to distancing. The seating layout in the chapel will remain unchanged initially.
- Please continue to sanitise your hands on arrival at the church and when leaving the building.
- Please ask if you would like to have a hymn book or Bible. There will be no printed orders of service, but the order of service will be available on the church website from the Friday before the service.
- Congregational singing of hymns will be allowed.
- Refreshments will be served in paper cups after the service. Please feel free to bring a reusable cup if you prefer. Access to the kitchen will be restricted.
- Details will no longer be taken for test and trace, but you may use the QR code to scan in if you wish.
Please note that although the restrictions are relaxing, Covid has not gone away and cases are currently rising. It is therefore important to continue to be cautious and to act carefully. We are aware that there are many who will welcome the relaxing of restrictions but are also mindful that there are others in our congregation who may feel more vulnerable and anxious. Please be aware of other people’s comfort levels with regards to Covid-safety measures.
We pray for God’s blessing and guidance for our church as we move together out of lockdown restrictions.
