From Sunday 26 July we are beginning a phased re-opening of the church for Sunday Worship at 11.00 am. The service from the church will be livestreamed via Zoom so that all can continue to worship together, whether from home or from the church.
For a full outline of our plans for returning to church, explaining the measures we have taken to keep everyone safe, please click here.
If you wish to receive details of how you can tune into the live-stream please click here.
The services will be continue to be recorded and posted on this website. To see recordings of our livestreamed service, please click here.
In order to maintain social distancing there will be limited capacity in the church. We are therefore opening the church in a series of phased steps so that we can ensure that the measures we have put in place will keep everyone safe.
If you would like to attend one of our services during August, please complete the survey on SurveyMonkey:
In the first phase we are inviting those who are unable to join us on Zoom to attend. All of those who are able to join our service online are asked to continue to worship with us from home.
We anticipate that there will be about 20 people in the church during this phase.
If anyone new to the church turns up for our service they will be more than welcome to attend.
We will invite a few more to join us at church, aiming for a congregation of about 30. This will give us the opportunity to refine our processes. This phase begins on Sunday 9 August.
Again, if anyone new to the church turns up for our service they will be more than welcome to attend.
We will begin to operate at our full capacity with social distancing. We believe that we will be able to accommodate a congregation of between 40 and 50 with the social distancing measures we have put in place. We do not know whether there will be sufficient space for all of those who would like to attend. We may need to develop a system of limiting numbers.
Our magazine, Crosstalk, has now become a weekly publication, which will be distributed to all members and friends. If you would like to be included on the distribution list, pleaseclick here.
Subject to government regulations and public safety, our rooms will be available to hire once again from the beginning of September 2020.
Once government regulations and guidelines become clear we will begin to engage with our regular hirers about how groups can plan their return in a safe manner.
The church office will re-open on Monday 3 August. For updates and information please continue to use the website.
This page of our website will be regularly updated in response to Government advice.
