Sunday Services - in the building


We're currently able to hold small in-person services at 11am on a Sunday. We recognise that not everyone is able or willing to join us in the building at this time, so the service will be live-streamed via our YouTube channel. See here for more information.

For those coming to the building with children, activities packs will be provided for children to complete in their seats.

We want to ensure we have enough space to safely seat everyone so please let us know you're coming by emailing: admin@stsimonsouthport.org.uk by 7pm on Saturday. But if you forget, don't worry, come along anyway, we're yet to run out of space.

There is also a creche room with audio to the main service, with enough space for two families to physically-distance and listen to the service. This is available for any parents with babies or very young children.

How safe will the services be?

We've made lots of changes to how we hold services, all in line with national guidance and the latest scientific advice. Here are some of the changes we've made...

Before the service:

...we have marked out 2m spacings on the way into the building and around the building.
...we have installed automatic hand sanitisers.
...we have a clearly sign-posted one way system to follow.
...we have opened all doors to avoid needing to touch a surface.
...we have set up a socially distanced and risk assessed children's work.


During the service:

...we will sit in 2m spaced seats or household bubbles.
...we will keep all windows open to provide ventilation.
...we will listen to the band and avoid singing for the time being.
...we will provide everyone with a notice sheet with printed Bible passage to take away.
...we will not be taking a collection or receiving yellow envelopes.
 

After the service:

...we will leave via the one way system and avoid household mixing.
...we will change the chairs and clean all touchable surfaces.
...we will keep a register of those who came for 21 days, in accordance with national 'track and trace' guidance.
