OUR SERVICES

"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." – Matthew 18:20

SERVICE ARRANGEMENTS FOR DECEMBER

  • The church is well equipped with hand sanitiser which everyone is asked to use on the way in.

  • Although masks are no longer legally required, we encourage the wearing of one with a view to protecting others and of helping everyone to feel confident about coming to church. In each church we'll make socially distance seating available for those who wish to use it.

  • We'll make socially distance seating available for those who wish to use it.

  • Our arrangements for the administration of Communion will remain the same for now.

  • We ask that everyone wears a mask whilst singing.  Those who are exempt from wearing a mask, or who prefer not to, are welcome to sing but only if they first make sure that they are socially distanced.

  • As we gain experience and confidence we'll fine tune our practices.
