Loss of smell and taste
Common cold or flu like symptoms
What can we legally do now?
All legal limits have been removed, but we ask you to be respectful of other people. You don’t know what their personal situation is! We recommend you continue to sanitise hands as you enter.
Not mandatory but you may wish to wear one.
Can we sing?
Can we serve refreshments?
Is a COVID pass required?
Can we open for tourism and visitors?
Yes (opening from Easter we hope, if we can get enough volunteers)
When you arrive
Sanitise your hands with gel/spray provided.
Service books/sheets will be handed to you on arrival.
No collection is taken during the service.
Please make your offering on the plates at the door as you arrive or leave, or make a donation via the internet from your phone by using the QR code that takes you to our Donate Page.
A Card Reader is also available for card payments.
During the Service
Bibles are once again available and should be left in the pew.
You can indicate you would like space left with provided ‘Please leave a Space’ notices available from sides-persons as you enter church.
The Peace – remains a non-contact act of sharing in fellowship. (except in your own bubble or at your own risk). Please respect other people’s space and do not be offended if people do not want to shake hands.
Holy Communion will be bread only, the ‘Common Cup’ is not shared. Where we do have wine the ‘Presiding minister’ will dip the bread in the wine before handing to you. NO ONE ELSE IS TO DIP their bread in the wine.
Refreshments – Are once again going to be served.
If at any time you feel unsafe or think we can do better, please let us know.
Thank you for your co-operation
God of healing and peace,
we give thanks for this place in which to worship you.
Guide each one of us as we seek protection for all from the coronavirus; in the name of him who gave his life for us all,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
