As restrictions continue to ease, we are delighted to be able to get back into our church building for our 10:30am + 6pm services.
Booking is essential, so please contact the church office to book your place or click here.
We’ve been working hard to ensure that we’re compliant with both the government’s and the Church of England’s guidelines for worship services so that our building is safe for church members and so that we can feel as comfortable as possible about meeting each other again. See here for a list of FAQs.
If you do not yet feel comfortable joining a larger gatherings just yet for in-person church, there is no pressure to attend. We will be live-streaming our 10:30am service on to our website and on YouTube, which will be broadcast into our 10:30am Zoom meeting. For more details of that, contact the church office.
Here's what to expect church with Covid restrictions ;
Booking is essential to attend our service. Please contact the church office to book your space, stating which service you wish to attend, and how many spaces you need. The office will be in touch on Friday afternoon with your confirmation and your designated seating area. Please take note of this before arriving for the service.
Please observe current social distancing guidelines at all times, staying at least 2 metres away from anyone outside of your household or bubble. This is particularly important on entering and exiting the building. We ask you come in good time to enable social distancing. We also ask you go directly to your designated seats on arrival.
Face coverings are currently mandatory in places of worship. While there are exemptions (those leading and preaching in the service, children under 11, etc.) this is a legal requirement, and we ask that you wear a face covering when attending a service. We will have some disposable masks available upon arrival for those who wish to use them.
Hand sanitiser will be placed at entrances and exits of the building. Please use before entering for a service.
We have implemented a one-way system. Entrance is through the main front door and to leave, please use the rear door in the north extension, exiting into the churchyard. Toilet facilities are open, but please use the one-way system after use (i.e. exiting through the rear door, and coming back round to the front of the church for entry).
We will keep doors open throughout the service to increase air-flow. There may be a slight draft, so please do bring additional layers to keep warm.
Sadly, we’re unable to sing together. We encourage you to sing in your hearts, perhaps mouthing the words or humming along quietly.
We clean toilets, and surfaces in the church between services on a Sunday.
Space is limited in our church building, so when we go over the limit, we will be using the North Building as an overflow, with a live link to the church service.
