Worship will be different to what we have been used to and we will be required to wear face coverings.
We will need to follow these guidelines: .We must continue to follow social distancing and so only members of the same household may sit with each other. .The service will be much shorter as no singing is permitted and the offertory will not be taken during the worship, but offertory plates will be at the exit doors. We estimate the services will be 30 – 40 minutes in time. .There will be no socialising at the beginning or close of the service and refreshments will not be served at the close of the service. .There will be no shaking of hands or physical contact. .There will be hand sanitiser within the building, and we ask that you use this on entering. .We will record who is present at any service – for the purposes of tracing should someone present subsequently be diagnosed with Coronavirus. .There will be a one-way system into the worship area – through the glass doors (front and back dependent whether you use the car park. All persons will enter the sanctuary through the left-hand door and exit through the doors at the rear of the sanctuary (the wooden doors that open to front). .We will not be able to use hymnbooks or bibles – if you wish to bring your own bible that is perfectly acceptable. .There will be no provision for Junior Church Members, but we welcome them to join our worship and perhaps they bring along something from home. .If you have coronavirus symptoms you will not be permitted to enter and if you develop these later please advise Church Secretary. This will enable us to follow the guidance necessary in this circumstance
