We are pleased to announce that the church building will reopen for Sunday services from Sunday 18th April in line with the next step of the Government ‘roadmap’ easing restrictions from 12 April. Our services will continue to be broadcast online as they have been throughout the last year and therefore will continue to be available for those who do not wish to attend services in the church building.
When attending Sunday services in our church building, please be aware of the following Covid-secure guidance which applies:
- A record of those attending will be kept for the purposes of track and trace.
- Face coverings must be worn by members of the congregation while in the building.
- No hymn books, service sheets or other material will be available for issue. If you wish to have a Bible please bring your own.
- There will be no congregational singing of hymns
- Social distancing must be observed in the building and the seating in the chapel will be arranged accordingly.
- Movement around the building will be limited and there will be no access to the kitchen or meeting rooms.
- There will be no refreshments available and at the end of the service all should leave the building with as little delay as possible.
Please note that numbers in the chapel will need to be limited due to social distancing requirements. If you are planning to attend services and are able to let Louise George know by mobile phone or email at email@example.com by 5pm on Friday a seat can be reserved for you. Advance notice is not required but please be aware that we are unable to let more people into the building once capacity is reached.
We meet via Zoom after the service for a virtual coffee and chat. The link for this will be shared at the end of the service in the comments on the live-streamed broadcast on Facebook and all are welcome to join us.
