We have returned to weekly services after the relaxation of the Covid restrictions and there is no need to book a sear beforehand.
Our Services begin at 10.30am and we are able to once again enjoy all the familiar aspects of being church however there are still a number of measures in place to ensure everyone can remain safe.
Upon arrival you will be asked to select a sticker to indicate how you are feeling at that moment.
A red sticker communicates that you require others to give you space
An orange sticker requires others to ask you first before they either sit next to you or want to offer a welcome hand shake or a hug.
A green sticker says to others that you are comfortable people being close and you are happy to hug or shake hands.
There are a number of points to use hand sanitiser around the church.
We would also ask that you continue to wear a face mask during the service unless you are exempt.
Things for Children: We believe that all children are an integral and important part of God’s family and this means we work hard to create a safe place for them, somewhere they can come and have fun and also be listened to. At the moment we have the children in our main service all the time.
Part of our commitment to the safeguarding of children is our policy called ‘Safe to Grow’ which has been developed by the Baptist Union of Great Britain. If you would like to know more about this then please do not hesitate to ask.
Prayer: We’ll spend some time praying for issues both in the news and closer to home. You don’t have to take part if you’d rather not.
Sermon: We have a weekly sermon/ talk that lasts about 20 minutes. This will also be recorded and posted on our Facebook page and on Youtube.
Singing: During the service we sing about four hymns and modern Christian songs but there’s no pressure to join in if you’d rather not. You do not have to be X-Factor standard!
Refreshments: We are working towards reintroducing refreshments after the service but you are welcome to bring your own flask or water bottle.
We have a time of Communion every third Sunday. If you aren’t sure what that means, don’t worry. It will all be explained on the morning. Like most churches, we do take an offering but it’s entirely voluntary.
