Sunday Services - in the building
We're currently able to hold in-person services at 9am & 11am on a Sunday. The 11am service will continue to be livestreamed via our YouTube channel. See here for more information.
If you're coming with children, we run children's groups for ages 3-14 at the 11am service. These are held in the church hall and we ask parents/carers to take children straight there before the service begins. They can then be collected at the end from the car park door.
There is also a creche room with audio to the main service, with enough space for three families to physically-distance and listen to the service. This is available for any parents with babies or very young children.
We want to ensure we have enough space to safely seat everyone so please let us know you're coming by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday evening. But if you forget, don't worry, come along anyway, we're yet to run out of space.
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 safely 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.
