Coronavirus Control Measures
We continue to follow the law and public health guidance to ensure our gatherings are 'COVID Secure'. We acknowledge that some of us wish to take more precautions and others welcome the personal freedom afforded by the changes since the summer. We hope to take an approach that enables the most people to gather in worship safely. There continues to be a great need to put the command to love and bear with each other into action when we gather.
All procedures are kept under review and we respond to new guidance and lessons learnt over time.
We expect to have the following measures in place on Sundays:
- Bibles are available, but you're still encouraged to bring your own if possible and you may also wish to bring a notebook and pen
- Hand sanitising on the way in and out
- Providing a seating area for those that wish to remain physically distanced and sit with others who are wearing face coverings
- Taking a register to support the NHS Test and Trace programme and displaying QR codes
- Serving refreshments outside if the weather permits
- Cleaning (disinfecting) all seats and commonly touched surfaces between services
- Church car park is closed to allow space to socialise outside
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should I do if I'm clinically extremely vulnerable?
A: Please take note of the Government guidelines. You're very welcome to join us but we recognise that it is for individuals to decide whether they feel able to return to church. Government advice is available here: >>LINK<<
Q: Is there somewhere for parents to go if a child needs to be taken out of the service?
A: Yes. The church centre/creche is open for parents who need time out with their child.
We strongly encourage parents to remain in the service with their children as much as possible, including returning as soon as you feel your child is able. Keeping children a part of our gathered worship is important.
Q: Should I come to church if I have symptoms?
A: No, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 you should follow the advice to self-isolate. If you develop symptoms while at church you should leave immediately.
Q: Should I wear a face covering?
A: The law no longer mandates the wearing of face coverings in churches. However, the Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded places. We recognise that wearing a face covering is a personal choice and people should expect to be welcomed at Christ Church Bromley whether or not they decide to wear a face covering.
We will have disposable face masks available at the welcome desk if you would like one.
Q: You're live streaming, how can I avoid being on camera?
A: Please lookout for signs when you arrive, these will clearly mark the areas where you could be in view. Before and after the service the camera is likely to be on a wide-shot of the front. Anyone seated in the front row or walking past will be in view. This is about 20 seats out of 180 - there's plenty of room if you don't want to be on camera!
Q: Will the toilets be open?
A: Yes, toilets will be open. Please limit their use to one household at a time.
Sunday services will continue to be available on our YouTube channel. Where we are meeting in church these will be live streamed to enable you to take part live. Recordings of the live streamed services will also be available for viewing at a later date.
