COVID-19 restrictions. Please:

  • Consider taking a Lateral Flow test before coming to church services or activities
  • Do not come to church if you have symptoms of COVID or have a positive test for COVID
  • Recognising that some people will wish to maintain a degree of physical distance for safety, part of the balcony has been designated as a physically distanced area. We will limit the number of households in the balcony & allocate space on a first-come-first-served basis
  • Also, while physical distance may not be legally required, it would be good practice to spread out as much as possible when choosing seats. Note: The first rows of pews will be reserved for the worship team
  • We will still maintain good ventilation with open doors, vents & windows & will sanitise between services
  • – Please dress warmly as ventilation means the building is colder than we would like
  • – Please exit the building promptly after the service & maintain physical distance on the stairway & the entrance.
