WE ARE REOPENING
Following the closure of our buildings in March 2020, we are now reopening our buildings for safe public worship.
“The Church is a house with a hundred gates; and no two people enter at exactly the same angle.” GK Chesterton - English Writer and Theologian
On Sunday 6 September, we will reopen our church building for public worship, having implemented a number of steps to ensure we are Covid-secure and a safe place for people to gather and worship once again. Our Sunday services will be as follows:
We will continue live streaming our morning services into people's homes via YouTube and Facebook. This will include live music from HTL Worship from within our building. We will not be permitting public access to this service.
This evening service will be a repeat of the morning service.
We will hold two afternoon Spoken Word and Music services, in line with Government, Church of England and local guidance. We will be permitted a restricted number of people in for these and providing children's activities for ages 3 - 14. We will share Holy Communion together at these services on the second and fourth Sundays of each month although we do ask that you bring your own bread and wine (or suitable alternative).
We have written to our members with instructions for which service to attend and what to expect, but we are open to everyone to come and worship alongside us. Ideally, we would ask that you contact us in advance so we can let you know what to expect, and also to help you work out which service is best to come to.
For those attending the 2:45pm service, we ask that you arrive between 2:30 and 2:40pm so we can get you safely registered for NHS Test and Trace. For those attending the 4pm service we ask that you arrive between 3:45pm and 3:55pm.
