CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

We thank God that we are open for physical services twice on the Lord’s Day (at 11.00am and 6.30pm). Our 11.00am and 6.30pm services are also streamed live each Sunday on our YouTube page, here.

Here are the guidelines for our physical services :

Please follow government advice, and do not come if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, or anyone in your household does. If that’s the case, why not watch the service on YouTube (click here)?

If you are able to come, please note :

  • Face masks are now required at all of our services and meetings. We WILL wear face masks during singing, too.
  • Please use the front doors of the church unless you need a ramp to get in. Those needing the ramp may use the side door.
  • At each entrance, hand sanitiser (73% alcohol) will be available. Please use this as you enter and leave the building.
  • Some pews will be taped off. This is to make sure we are socially distanced during the main service (but you may sit next to those from your own household). If you are directed to sit in a pew where another person (not from your household) is sitting, please make sure you stay 2 metres apart.
  • We are now allowed to sing, but we will wear face masks during singing.
  • There will not be a collection during the service. If you wish to give, please use the offering boxes located on empty pews near the back of the church (and in the balcony). Please try not to touch the offering box as you put money in.
  • The crèche will be available for use by small children.
  • We will run a socially distanced Sunday School for 3-11 year olds in two groups. Children will go out during some music before the sermon.
  • After the services, there will now be refreshments in the back hall. When you are in the back hall, you do not have to socially distance. You do not have to wear masks when taking refreshments, but should wear them at all other times.

We are thankful to God that we can get back to singing and refreshements! And we continue to enjoy gathering together to hear God’s Word … we hope you can join us!

The church has completed and updated a thorough risk assessment, which you can see by clicking here.
