Welcome Home!

We have returned to on-site, in-person gatherings and we’ve been managing our Covid restrictions whilst trying to maintain the confidence of the more vulnerable.

We meet on Sunday mornings for our Church family gathering which starts with an informal time of worship at 10:15, and formal welcome at 10:30.

If you decide to gather with us on Sunday morning, here’s what you can expect to find:

Seating:

  • Set out in short rows/groups of 6-8 with 2m distance between each group

 

Masks:

  • Masks are mandatory for everyone 11+ (except those who are medically exempt)

 

Mixing:

  • In order to minimise transmission, we are not permitting mixing between groups
  • You can choose where to sit, and can engage with those in your row/group but not mix between groups
  • Our stewards will direct & manage everyone’s exit from the building to ensure minimal mixing

 

Ventilation:

  • We will ensure good ventilation by opening windows & doors during events
  • Although the heating is on, please dress warmly

 

Testing:

  • Gathering together in large numbers is considered a high-risk activity and advise LFT testing before entry
  • So we ask all participants to take a lateral flow test before attending

 

Symptoms:

  • If you have any cold/flu symptoms, please do not join us until they have passed

 

Refreshments:

  • We are not currently serving refreshments but encourage you to bring a drink with you
