Worshipping Safely: The Next Steps

The relaxation of legislation around how we can meet does not alter the fact that we still have a responsibility to gather for worship in ways that keep everyone as safe as possible. As a Christian community, acting for the common good is in our DNA.

Therefore, while infection rates remain high we will continue to keep most of our current COVID protocols in place: but with a couple of key changes. We will begin singing again (with masks on) and have changed out distancing rules slightly. For a full explanation, click the button below.

All-Age Worship, Children’s Church and our Sunday Youth ministry, Tea n Toast are all now functioning.
