Sunday morning services

Date: 30th August 2020

The Church Building is open today for a joint service at 10.30am.

If you are coming to the Church Building, please read these guidance notes:

For all those attending our joint service at 1030am today
The church will be cleaned before and after the service

Please DO NOT park in the church forecourt unless you are a
disabled driver. This is to keep the church forecourt completely clear
making departure at a distance possible, and any conversations people
have with one another possible at a distance outside.
Please keep 2 m apart as you approach the church and enter the
building . Observe and follow the guidance and arrows laid out for you.

On entry:
1. Please sign in with your name
This information will be kept with the Vicar for three weeks only and then destroyed.
We are asking you for this information in case the NHS need to track and trace anyone should there be a covid-19 diagnosis for someone in church today.
2. Please sanitise your hands
3. We are advised to wear masks, and as you know there are a
number of reasons to be exempt for wearing them .Please
familiarise yourself with the Government advice on this
4. Find a seat as directed
5. All seats are marked with a X. Please sit there on the X unless you
are a family group/bubble in which case you may use the whole pew
6. Please do not sing, do not speak loudly/shout
7. We will not be able to collect your financial offerings as normal, but
you are able to:
a) leave them at the plate on departure
b) make a card payment before or after the service.
8. Exit the church via the West (back door) as soon as the service is

Additional guidance
It will feel strange to be ‘back in the church building’ as we cannot lead services in
the way we have been used to.
• Please note that Govt guidelines are that we must not sing. We may have
one singer socially distanced from the congregation.
• We are advised to wear masks, and as you know there are a number of
reasons to be exempt for wearing them .Please familiarise yourself with the
Government advice on this,
• We cannot offer refreshments yet and are advised we need to leave the
building as soon as the service ends.
• However we can join together in the worship through our presence
together, our prayers together, and listening to God, giving time and space to hear him.
• Toilets can now be open and used in the Magdalene centre. There are
hand sanitisers on the wall outside the men’s and the women’s toilets for your use before entry. There is a one way system. Please follow the arrows.

Financial Giving: you are now able to leave your offerings on the plate at entrance
to church or to use the CARD READER also as you enter church
We have enough distanced seating for 40+ people, although a family can sit together. There will be no Children’s groups just yet but there will be a children’s focus in this service.


This is really important: Coming on site Whether it is to see Sarah or do an odd job It remains the case that anyone coming on site for whatever reason must clear the day and time and purpose with Amanda first, and let her know on the day that they have arrived and when they leave. Thank you very much.
