The church has now reopened for communal worship on Sundays with some necessary restrictions in place. Some of those reading these words may not feel safe to return to worship with us physically. We completely understand this and please do not feel under any pressure to return.
The service is being filmed and placed on the Church’s You Tube channel every week, so you can join with us in this way ( see links in the 'service recordings'section of this website). Also, the Prayer Meetings ( Thursday 7pm) will continue on Zoom for the foreseeable future. (E mail us for details of how to join).
The Leadership Team have additionally decided, with great regret, that Friday Friends toddler group and Take A Break coffee morning will not reopen yet.
Below is the risk assessment upon which we have made our decision to open for worship:
