PRAISE GOD – WE ARE OPEN
We are delighted that the local Government has lifted restrictions so we can meet in our church building again, however coming to church is going to be a lot different from what we have been used to.
The newly issued Government guidelines for safe worship will be adhered to and implemented. Although the executive has reduced the distance to 1m (just over 3ft) we have decided to stick with the original 2m (6ft) to begin with, to build confidence as our congregation returns to normality.
We will adopt a phased return. At present, and from this evening, 1st July 2020, we will be meeting at the church on a Wednesday evening at 8pm for our prayer time and Midweek Bible Study. We will also meet at the church this Sunday 5th July for Worship. If you are intending to come out to church this Sunday, please get in touch ASAP so we can make sure you understand our new arrangements for attending the church and answer any questions you may have.
There will be no Sunday School or crèche so all children are encouraged to remain with their parents during the service.
In line with the Government guidance, we recognise some people will be unable to join us at the minute in church, so we will continue to provide the sermons to everyone through various digital platforms, DV.
Should you attend?
The current Government advice says if you are over the age of 70 and who have underlying health conditions, you should remain at home. If someone in your household is shielding then you should stay at home as well. If you have a cough and are feeling unwell please stay at home. If you are showing any symptoms of COVID19 or if you have been told to shield we would ask that you stay at home until you are better and/or when the Government allows those shielding to go back out in early August. This is our first tentative step for regathering and we need to put everyone’s health first.
Thank you for all your continued support at this time.
Rev. George Speers
