Statement from Pastor and Leadership Team Tuesday 9th March 2021

After careful consideration and prayer, we have made the decisions below, which may be subject to change, depending on the situation with the virus and Government and Baptist Union advice: 

1. Pubic worship will resume in person on Sunday 2nd May at 10.30am. We will need to continue for the time being to adhere to the arrangements which were put in place in September and October 2020- namely, social distancing, changes seating arrangements, good ventilation, no hugging, no singing. The Leadership Team will need to clean before and afterwards and leave shortly after the service. We have checked Government advice and BU advice on these things and all these limitations are the still the case. Services will be recorded and placed on You Tube. 

2. Take a Break Coffee morning will resume on Tuesday 18th May at 10am. We will resume this on a weekly basis for the time being. It will not be possible to play games or crafts, and will be a case of table service of teas and coffees ( different rules apply than for church). Reading and chatting will be possible.  Social distancing rules and ventilation etc will apply. 

3. Friday Friends Toddler group will not be resuming until September at the earliest. We regret this but feel, with reduced number of helpers, and reduced number of families/adults allowed under Government exempting regulations, it is not possible to run this safely at present.  

4. The Thursday evening prayer meeting will continue on Zoom on a permanent basis. If you would like the link please e mail the Church Secretary.
