COVID-19 Worship Arrangements

  1. It is now appropriate that we follow the current Government guidelines in relation to attendance at services. There is no legal requirement for those testing positive for COVID 19 to self-isolate but it would be sensible that you do so. When attending a service there is no requirement to wear a face mask but many will still be more comfortable in doing so. Likewise, please respect the wishes of those who choose to sit at a distance from other members of the congregation. We are still advised that good hygiene practices should be followed— hand sanitiser will be available and we will continue to ventilate the Worship Area.
  2. For baptisms, a limit of 30 additional people in the baptismal party can be present for Sunday worship.
  3. Wherever possible services are not to exceed 40 minutes. Local preachers and ministers are to be advised.
  4. Refreshments after the service will not be taking place at present but people are encouraged to have conversations after the service outside the church building.
  5. The above arrangement to be reviewed monthly (unless restrictions are reimposed by the Government) and if successful may be subject to change.
  6. A collection plate is available as you enter the church.
  7. Currently we are unable to provide separate provision for children.
