Sunday Church Services - building re-opening
 

Dear Friends,

It is with great joy that we look forward to welcoming many of you back to the church
building to worship together on a Sunday morning!

Our first Sunday back will be on the 23rd August and we will gather for a 10:30am start as
normal.
Whilst some elements of the morning service will feel a little different -like the spacing
between chairs -there will be so much that will be familiar and so much to look forward to!
Whilst we won’t be singing, we know that our worship is so much greater than this and we
do believe that through this time we might come to fully appreciate the breadth of our
worship that bit more. When we gather on a Sunday morning, we will be creating a space to
praise God, pray together, explore His word, and listen for His voice. We might even use
some music for reflection as well!

We also fully understand that this is not the right time to welcome everyone back and if
you’d like to continue to worship online with us as you are presently, please do. The theme
for the services will be the same, so the whole church family will still be worshipping and
growing together!

For those that will join us ‘in person’, the leadership team have completed a risk assessment
to ensure that we can welcome you all back safely and there will be a smiley team of people
ready to welcome you on the morning and answer any questions you may have.

Please have a little read through the guidelines below as these summarise the steps that we
have put in place to keep everyone safe.

DO
 Please DO come expectant that God will work amongst us and ready to praise Him!
 Please DO bring a Bible with you if you’d like to have one to refer to during the service.
 Please DO wear a face covering whilst you are in the building. As you may have heard this
    will become mandatory from the 8 th August. We will have face coverings available on the
    door if you don’t have one.
 Please DO use hand sanitiser on the way in and on the way out. This will be available by the
    door.
 Please DO maintain social distancing from others who are not in your household. The chairs
    will be set apart to make this easier for you and we kindly ask that you don’t move them.
    Everyone in the same household will be able to sit together.
 Please DO follow the one-way system in place. As you come in you’ll be invited to enter
    through the left-hand door.

DON’T
    Please DON’T come a church service if you have any of the common symptoms of CO-VID 19.
    These are a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of the sense of smell or
    taste.
    Please DON’T come if you are still shielding or have been advised to continue to avoid large
    gatherings on health grounds. In this instance, please continue to share in the services
    through the church website or on CD.

Children
We are not able to run any of our children or young people’s groups currently under the
present restrictions and this includes the Sunday morning groups. Therefore, if you are
bringing children with you, please feel free to bring activity books and other such items with
you to keep them engaged. The services will be a little shorter than normal and we will do
our best to involve the children in all the aspects of worship as we all seek to grow more in
our knowledge and love of Jesus.

Toilets
The disabled toilet by the main entrance will be the only toilet open on a Sunday morning.
The toilet will be disinfected after every use.

If you have any questions ahead of coming to a service at the church building, please do
contact Garry, Annalisa or any of the Leadership Team who will be happy to help.

 

All youth group & childrens activities postponed
 

Due to the ongoing situation with the corona virus, as a church we have made the difficult decision to temporarily cancel, Topz, Teenz, YPF and Building Blocks.
We are very sad to have had to make this decision, but the health of our young people is important to us. We will review the situation after the Easter holidays.
