Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update – 19th July

Following the decision by the Government, and advice from the Baptist Union, we are now moving towards a more usual way of worshipping on Sundays at 10am. The Sunday service will continue to be live-streamed for the next few weeks.

Entrance to the church will be via The Parks / Organ Door only. This is to help us arrange youth activities as well as to facilitate track and trace.

You will no longer need to book before coming to a service. However, we will be asking for your name and contacts for test and trace.

You will not need to wear a face covering whilst sitting in your seat or whilst singing. However, you are still welcome to wear a face covering if you would like to. We also ask that people wear a face covering when moving around the Church.

Hand Sanitiser will be available on entry and exit, but please bring your own if you wish to use it during the Service.

The windows and doors will be open in the Church to allow as much ventilation as possible.

We understand that some will want to continue social distancing. So we encourage people NOT to hug/handshake unless you know that people are happy to do so.

Please do not come for worship or enter the building if you are showing any Covid symptoms in any way.

There will be no refreshments following the services. However, we will be having Church Picnics in Blenheim Gardens at 12 noon following Sunday Services – weather permitting!

Where our services include communion this will be shared in a safe way using pre-prepared bread and individual glasses of non-alcoholic wine.

We will no longer be holding a Service on Thursdays, but we will continue our 10am times of prayer on Facebook.

We move forward slowly and gently…
