COVID-Safe Church

COVID-19 Statement

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive and unprecedented impact on all areas of our lives. With regard to church life, it means that we need to ensure that all usage of our building enables people to both feel, and be, as safe as possible. At the same time, we need to balance this with maintaining our distinctly Christian ways of worshipping, serving, working for justice and being welcoming and inclusive.

Therefore, we feel it is important that all people accessing our premises are aware that we have:

  • taken heed of all relevant government guidelines and have benefitted from information provided by the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
  • undertaken a full and thorough risk assessment of all areas of the building.
  • devised an overall set of procedures for all users to follow.
  • taken a measured approach to usage of the building where possible and appropriate: for instance by continuing with online activities.
  • required that all groups and activities taking place in our building have a proper risk assessment in place.
  • increased the levels of cleaning.
  • provided the necessary PPE, social distancing and COVID-safe resources and signage.

If you wish to attend a Sunday service (10:30 – 11:00am), you need to note as follows:

We are alternating how we do Sunday services: Week 1 is for adults (no children) and Week 2 is for families with children.

In order to attend, you must book in by texting or phoning Gerard on 07775465062. Please only attend on the Sunday if you have had confirmation that you have a place.

Do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms:

  • high temperature; persistent cough; loss of taste or smell.
  • or you know or suspect that you have COVID-19 at this time.

When you arrive on a Sunday:

  • we will take your temperature before you enter the building.
  • you will need to use hand sanitiser on entry and wear a face covering whilst you are in the building.
  • there will be no congregational singing and no refreshments.

But we will be together and worshipping! It is just different and it is how we will have to worship for now.
