Coronavirus Control Measures
The government has withdrawn all legal restrictions relating to COVID-19. We continue to follow the available public health guidance to ensure our gatherings are as safe as reasonably possible. We acknowledge that some of us wish to take more precautions and others welcome the personal freedom afforded by the latest changes. 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 one another into action when we gather.
All procedures are kept under review and we respond to new guidance as well as lessons learnt over time.
We expect to have the following measures in place on Sundays:
- Hand sanitiser is widely available, including at entrances and exits
- Providing a seating area for those that wish to remain physically distanced and sit with others who are wearing face coverings
- Opening windows to provide ventilation
- Church car park is closed to allow space to socialise outside
- NB: the NHS withdrew their venue check-in QR code system in February
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should I do if I'm at high risk from coronavirus?
A: Please check the advice from the NHS below to decide what is best for you and your circumstances.
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: "While you’re no longer required by law to self-isolate if you have COVID-19, you should still stay at home and avoid contact with other people. This helps reduce the chance of passing COVID-19 on to others." (NHS.uk, 04/03/2022)
Further information is available from the NHS here.
Q: Should I wear a face covering?
A: Face coverings are no longer required by law.
We will have disposable face masks available if you would like one and have forgotten to bring one with you.
The Government's advice on 'When to consider wearing a face covering or a face mask' is available here. (gov.uk, 21/04/2022)
Q: You're live streaming, how can I avoid being on camera?
A: Please look for signs when you arrive, these will clearly mark the areas where you could be in view. Anyone seated in the front row or walking past the front will be in view. This is about 20 seats out of 200+. There's plenty of room if you don't want to be on camera!
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.
