We are grateful that services are able to resume within the church building. However, it will be different than before as we follow regulations and do our best to keep people safe. If you don't yet feel ready to come back, please don't worry about that or feel any pressure to come. We'll be keeping the videos on our YouTube channel going too.
- There is no need to book in advance.
- Don't come to the building if you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms of Covid-19 (high temperature / fever, cough or loss of sense of smell).
- As part of the Test and Protect system, your attendance and contact details will be retained for a maximum period of 28 days, after which time, in accordance with data protection, it will be destroyed.
- Please use the hand sanitisers in the entrance hall before entering the sanctuary and also when you leave the building.
- Everyone over the age of 12 (unless exempt) has to wear a face covering in the building. If you forget to bring a mask, we will have a supply of disposable masks available.
- Stewards will show you to your seats and unfortunately we're not able to get up and walk over to talk to people. Each household group will be seated 1m apart.
- We have to keep the windows open for ventilation, so make sure you're wearing warm enough clothing.
- Children are welcome and the Zone (Sunday school) meets in two groups during the sermon in two groups: p4 and under, and p5-s1.
- There will be an offering plate at the door on the way out. This is to avoid plates being passed around and touched by multiple people.
- To avoid access to other areas of the church building (and therefore other areas being touched and requiring disinfecting and cleaning) the only toilet available will be the disabled toilet in the entrance hall. If possible, go to the toilet before you come!
- When the service ends, to ensure social distancing we would ask you to leave your seats only when invited by the stewards.
It may be that reading a long list of information like this makes the prospect of going back to the church building seem daunting. Hopefully once you're actually there it'll not feel so bad! It's not ideal, but we're doing the best we can in the circumstances! And remember, church is more than what happens on a Sunday morning. Do contact us if you want more information or have any questions.
