FAQs - Coming to church in person during Covid 19

Are there services I can attend in church?

  • Yes! We have three services in person each Sunday, all of which are in church, and you can find out about them here.

What restrictions are in place when services do happen in church?

  • Social distancing is not required but there is plenty of space if you would like to socially distance. 

  • Hand sanitiser is available at both main entrances to church

  • Face coverings - please wear a face covering in church unless medically exempt. 

  • Congregational singing is now allowed inside but please wear a face covering.  Weather permitting our 10am service will be outside during the summer and face coverings do not need to be worn.

How are we compliant with NHS Test and Trace?

  • We will record the names of people attending our services. In line with guidance issued by the Department for Health and Social Care, we will keep your details safely and in compliance with GDPR legislation for 21 days before deleting them. We will only share your details with NHS Test and Trace, in the event that it is needed to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We will not use your details for any other purposes or pass them on to anyone else.

What happens at communion services?

  • Only the bread will be distributed, and we won’t be moving around or shaking hands during the Peace.

Are services streamed online?

  • Our 10am service is streamed online.  Please note that if you attend in person, there is a chance you may appear in the livestream, although we never focus in on members of the congregation. 

How can I give?

We are not able to pass a collection plate around, but there is a donation box near the South Door, and card readers at the South and West doors.  Or why not do your giving online?

Should I come if I’m particularly vulnerable to Covid19?

The decision is entirely yours, but we encourage those who are particularly vulnerable to continue to watch online for now. However, everyone will be welcome, however they decide to attend.
