SUNDAY SERVICES

WELCOME BACK

We're so excited to be able to meet together again as a church family.

Why not join us at one of our morning services?

SUNDAY SERVICE BOOKINGS

Although services are looking a little different right now as we continue to work within government guidelines, we trust as you join with us,

you will be blessed as we worship together in person!

As we cautiously move towards resuming all services and groups back to the building as covid guidelines allow, we have started two morning services as well as continuing to stream the morning and evening services online.

The two morning service are at 9.30am and 11.30am. During the first service we have a group for children in school years R-6, and two groups for young people during the second for those in school years 7-10, and 11-13.

From Sunday, 25th July we recommend that you continue to book into our services. For options and further information please see details below.

Covid Guidance, Safety, and F.A.Q.'s

Do I still need to book for a service after the 25th July?

We would like you all to continue to book into our services. Please do this if you are able as it helps us to organise seating. You can book either our 9.30am or 11.30am service via our website or My ChurchSuite and filling in the simple booking form and submitting it by noon the day before. Alternatively, you can call the office on 01425 473388 to book your seats.

However, we are also able to welcome people who have not pre-booked, so please still come even if you have forgotten to book or if your plans change late on a Saturday, allowing you to come.

Who can I sit with?

Currently up to six people can opt to sit together or 2 households. Social distancing needs to be maintained between seperate 'bubbles',

Please could one person book for each 'bubble'.

What if I can no longer attend?

If you have booked seats and can no longer attend, please cancel a.s.a.p. via the link in your confirmation email, the service on My ChurchSuite, or by contacting the office and so the seats can be filled by others wishing to attend.

Are there any groups for children or young people?

We currently have a children's group for children in school years R-6 during the first service at 9.30am, and two groups (school years 7-10, and 11-13) for young people at the second service at 11.30am.

You don’t need to book children (R-Y6) / younger young people (Y7-Y10) into a group, just book for those occupying a seat in the service. However, when booking please state how many children will be attending each age group.

When you arrive check yourselves in first, and then sign-in your children in at the child check-in desk before taking your seats in the service.

Older young people (Y10-Y13) need to be booked in on ChurchSuite as some of them attend without a parent.

Do you have provision for children under 5?

If you have children under 5, they will need to sit on your lap, or be on the floor next to you. Activity packs are available if needed, and should you need to take them out, there will be provision in the creche room and lounge. You will need however to stay with them, and face coverings and social distancing will still be required.

Can we sing during worship?

Yes, from the 25th July we will be singing again. But, we respectfully ask that all should continue to wear a face covering when singing.

Social distancing

Seating is arranged following the latest government guidelines. On arrival you will be shown to your seats where you can sit with other members of your 'bubble'. The 4 seats either side of your 'bubble' will be marked as unavailable to help maintain social distancing.​

Face Coverings

We respectfully ask that all should continue to wear a face covering when singing and when moving around inside the building for our Sunday services. This will enable everyone to feel safe, especially those who have not been attending recently.

Hand sanitising

Sanitising stations are placed at all entrance and exit points in the church building, and also outside the toilets. Please make use of these when entering, exiting, and when using the facilities.

Toilets

The main toilets are available for use should you need them while attending the service.

Before and after the service.

Please do not arrive before 9.15am if booked in for the 9.30am service, or before 11.15am for the second service. Also, please leave the building promptly after the first service so there is time to clean the building properly and prepare for the arrival of people to the next service.

At the end of the first service, you would be welcome to join us for refreshments out on the patio.

There is a one way system when entering and exiting the church. Please make sure you follow any directions and signs placed throughout the building.

Are refreshments served after the services have finished?

Each Sunday morning we are serving refreshments (tea & coffee) in disposable cups outside on the patio. Feel free to stay after the first service or come early for the second service to enjoy spending some time together.
